Put a script in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d which reads a file (say,
~/download/download.files), which has a newline separated list of files
to download.  Each line gets passed to wget.

I use leafnode.  I don't see how being late is going to make a
difference of choosing offline news sender program.  They would all
basically be sending at the same time, since you have a limited
connection time.
