Cool, thanks! I have it downloading now... should take 3-4 hours given the current speed.
Once I get it, I'll put it up on my server and set it up so people can get in and download it on a limited basis. I don't want to overload the connection and slow down the forums, so I'll probably limit it to 1-2 downloads at a time. The server is only on a T1 and there's lots of stuff running on it.
While its on my server.. The best time will be at night.. Just let your computer go all night... Should only take 2 hours on a good connection... And this weekend will not be real bad... But this afternoon is slow due to 5-10 people downloading at a time....
I officially give up trying to get this file. There are so many people trying to get it at one time that transfer rates are now under 5k/sec. It's stalled and failed three times now, at over 200 meg each time. There's no point in trying anymore.
I was able to download a copy finally... sorry, my post was in frustration because of how many times the transfer died. I was able to start it up late one night (midnight) and it ran all night and into yesterday afternoon.
I'm ftping it up to my server now. When it's done, I'm going to try to get regular anonymous ftp setup and just set it to a max of maybe 2-3 users at a time. I will also try to split the file up to make it easier to download.
