Now what does flaunting your 11mins achieve? Besides causing me to whoop you with my 5 mins?! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Someone posted a link to the 'Star Downloader", and although I was timed out on my second try (The mirror was corrupt), I just restarted the DL and finished it with no prob. The dl timed out when it was almost finished. Without the Star manager I would have been 'reamed'.

I'm on DSL and it's still taking 3 hours, due probably to the amount of traffic. Oh, well, 94% done, good enough for me.

My machine had work is part of the Internet 2 project. However, it took me around 30 minutes to download -- probably because of the server being overloaded. Also the net is being hit with a new virus (a worm I think) called Blaster. It is on our local net. If you haven't you should update your NAV or other anti virus programs.
