I always use wget for large files and my simple script adds the restart
option if the file already exists.
Can't remember when the last time was that I downloaded a >20M file using
a browser.

I can only get 50K/sec on my 10Gb ADSL, but both Aus mirrors I am getting
disc 2 and 3 from are able to supply that at full speed - but I know
aarnet for certain only allows Aus traffic so that helps me but I'm sure
you guys.
(Was interesting to see the aarnet mirror being created before my eyes)

I got most of disc1 from the site listed in the "user" mailing list
but it degraded slowly during the day and I killed it at around 550M
I'll get the rest of 1 when 2 & 3 are finished.


MS ... if only he hadn't been hang gliding!
