Probably should just read the man file myself but do you have to specify target filename, or can you just
curl -o ~/ remote_file

Honestly, I'd have to look too. I'm more of a windows guy *ignores the boos and hisses*

Also, I forgot to mention, I frequently get a host not found message if safari hasn't resolved the host rescently - odd.
