### Integrating CiteULike in LaTeX-based paper writing

Just a quick note. I started using CiteULike as replacement for JabRef (I hope that it will abstract the backend interface, allowing CiteULike to act as online store), and picked up an idea from someone to use groups for individual papers I am working on. And, I extended my Makefile (Marcus, yeah, I know I should use cmake :) to download the references in the group in BibTeX format:
book.bib:
@echo "" > book.bib
@wget -O - http://www.citeulike.org/bibtex/group/14384 >> book.bib


BTW, does anyone have experience with the new biblatex?

1. Anyone come across any tool/script to take a backup of the PDF files from a citeUlike library?

2. For PDF backup, try:

3. Fergus, thanx for the pointer!

4. The JSON export has a SHA1 checksum for the PDF for this very purpose, too.
