Use the filename argument to getGEO to parse and existing file, rather 
than downloading it again.  For example:


#Download GEO file, put it in the current directory, and load it:
gse <- getGEO('GSE2718', destdir=".")

#Or, open an existing GEO file (even if its compressed):
gse <- getGEO(filename='GSE2718.soft.gz')
