Download a list of files from websites using Powershell

I saw a great article about a 1950s Science Fiction magazine, now available for download (http://arstechnica.com/the-multiverse/2016/02/you-can-now-read-the-entirety-of-sci-fi-magazine-if-for-free/).

In the comments, someone had collated a list of URLs to provide to a download manager.  Since I didn’t have one, and I knew that Powershell had a way to download a file from a URL, I decided to create my own.

The script available here: http://pastebin.com/7NDkzEJN will allow you to provide a text file containing a list of URL’s and download the file.
