Is it possible to receive an automatically downloaded table of historic prices of various indices?

I'm thinking about writing a script that will do this but I see OST only supplies 10 years worth of historical data for most shares. Any idea where you can find historical data reaching further back?

why would you need prices old then 10 years. I know Sharemagic provides "entire History".

Fair point, but I'm a hoarder and I like knowing I have all the data in case I ever need it :P

Writing a script to s*****e the data isn't that complicated, I do however have concerns about whether automatically downloading the data is allowed in the OST terms and conditions. I gave them a read and never saw anything explicitly prohibiting it but I am not a legal expert so I could be wrong
