[laughs]  I suspect the urlretrieve line should contain 
"strip('\n')" instead of "strip('/n')", but otherwise, the 
original code looked pretty kosher.  I'm not sure what the odd 
slicing is for, but I'll presume the OP knows what they're doing.

While not a python solution, the standard *nix tool would be 
either wget or curl:

	bash> wget -i listofurls.txt

which is freely available with the Cygwin suite of GNU tools for 
Win32 platforms.
