Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 We will need to figure out how to handle this.  When clicking on the url
 in the book, it does the right thing for me.  When using wget, I get the
 file, but it is named index.html.  Use the file command to check it.

 We probably need to remove the trailing / because that seems to work with
 wget.

 I suppose we could just pick a sourceforge mirror and get it without all
 the indirection:

 http://hivelocity.dl.sourceforge.net/project/procps-ng/Production/procps-
 ng-3.3.9.tar.xz

 It's only about 550K and takes me about 6 seconds to download.  traceroute
 shows it's 15 hops for me with about 50ms round trip time.
