Here is a random zip archive for you to download:
Unzip the archive, then process the resulting files to obtain a numeric result. You'll be taking the sum of lines from files matching a certain description, and multiplying those sums together to obtain a final result. Note that files have many different extensions, like '.pdf' and '.js', but all are plain text files containing a small number of lines of text.
Sum of line 2 for all files with path or name containing foo and ending in .xml
Sum of line 4 for all files with path or name containing mno and ending in .pdf
Hint: If the requested line does not exist, do not increment the sum.
Multiply all the above sums together and enter the product below.

One just needs to modify the set of rules and the location of the unzipped folder.
I just posted my answer for question 3; I have to wait 8 hours for the result! Oh well, fingers crossed.
