Ignore certificate warnings in wget

If you find yourself using wget instead of curl (either by necessity, or because you have no taste), you may get errors like this:

ERORR: The certificate of `example.com' is not trusted.

This should raise warning flags. If you wish to ignore (and I won’t be held responsible for any ill effects), use this flag to bypass:

$ wget --no-check-certificate $url

Done and done.
