    Hi @paulo.peres,

    Please familiarize yourself with best practices around sharing passwords in public forums, and their security implications. Understanding whether it is acceptable to share sensitive information this way is critical for novices and experts in the IT field.

    The same text box where the wget and tar commands are presented, includes the following note:

    (Note: depending on your software, if you are cutting and pasting the above instructions, the underscores may disappear and be replaced by spaces, so you may have to edit the command line by hand!)

    Please take the time and read the explanations that accompany each exercise step, as they may provide helpful tips or solutions to common errors.
