2nd Apr 2019: Bundles are here
Do you want to get a hold of all the lightcurves that are produced at TASOC? Well, it is now much easier!
Simply go to the "Bundles" tab at the top of the page and you will find scripts for bulk-download of thousands of lightcurves in one go... Enjoy the easier access to large amounts of data, but remember to read the data release notes before diving in too deep.
