It seems I am spending more and more of my days in Jupyter Notebooks lately. While still following the fast.ai course - sometimes life gets in the way of your plans - I noticed datasets are either included or there is a link to a .zip file, which you still need to download and extract by hand. After some manual repetitions, I started dabbling with a small script to make that part easier, so I could just focus on running experiments in the future.
