I'm not quite sure where this post fits in, so im dropping it here.
it has become next to impossible to dl except between the hours of 2-8 EST for me. At all other times, my connection speed blows, and the dls finish prematurely, and then I have to start over, and its hell... (i think there was an in-depth explanation about that in the FAQS).
so, im assuming this has something to do with the traffic, but i hope that eventually I'll be able to dl during the day again someday...
I dont know if this matters, but the above situation pretty much only happens to me on mirrors 2 and 3. mirror one has been incredibly fast.
