I want to download various debs to my home directory to be burnt latter

manually one at a time. To speed up the process I've tried to use
¨apt-get -d -o dir::cache= ~/Tmp/deb install ¨ without any luck.
I'm obviously using the wrong options but can't think of any others to
try.Can someone tell me what I should be doing.
I'm running ubuntu on my box, is this the root of the problem.
Maybe apt-zip what you are looking for? I have not used it, but it
claims to ease the process of keeping a non-networked machine up-to-date.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
