I came across Most API call efficient way to retrieve all attachment bodies and there was a secondary question that came out of answers that I had a possible solution for.
So I asked the question separately - Automate the downloading of Data Export zip files
I have this uneasy feeling that my subsequent question will be viewed poorly as some form of self promotion beyond trying to supply a solution to a common problem.
Is this kind of question and answer bad form?
Maybe I should just wait and see how it is received. I'm sure others can come up with other possible answers.
