   Perhaps you need an operating system.  On VMS, one could create a
wget-specific batch queue, set its job limit to one, and submit all the
non-compete wget jobs to it.  The queue manager would run the submitted
jobs one at a time, first-come=first-served, with the terminal output
logged to a file (of your choice).  If you ask (SUBMIT /NOTIFY), you can
get a message broadcast to your terminal(s) when a job ends.

(Where would you like to put the axle on that new wheel?)
