Subject: updated version of "getdata"  

I updated the getdata script so that it can now handle downloading long stretches of data.

  /opt/rtcds/caltech/c1/scripts/general/getdata

It now writes the data to disk incrementally while it's downloading from the server, so it doesn't fill up memory.

I also added a couple new options:

* --append allows for appending to existing data files

* --noplot suppresses plotting during download
