It probably would have been easier to get all of them manually by now.
For the moment, why not just: cp /home/www/html/local/*.html ~/public_html
and work on it there. Its pretty much the extend of what you can change.
What I'm assuming you want to do is make it look pretty, in which case all
you need to do is figure out a style sheet.

Actually, you'd be surprised at what you are learning now. Probably most
of the other first years haven't heard of ssh or tar or anything like
that. Best way to learn is to actually use unix. I assume that in one
of your subjects, you will have to do a unix test, and having been a tutor
for this subject (when it was a bit different) it was really surprising
how much (or, to be more precise, how little) unix some students
knew. The more time you spend hanging about on progsoc, trying to do
things, the more you'll learn, unintenionally.
