Q.  How can I disable wget's progress bar but still get some output?
(ie not totally silent)

A.  Use the -nv option:

wget -nv http;//example.com
The man page says:
-nv --no-verbose Turn off verbose without being completely quiet (use -q for that), which means that error messages and basic information still get printed.
