WoW, that file's huge! At the speed it's going I'll have the file between 3 and 5 days (shame the speed isn't a bit faster).

Thanks for the share bandit.

Will click on it myself when I get in :)

If peeps aren't on torrents and want the goodies, I'll stick 'em on DVDs when the file is down.

I use Shareaza for bitorrents since i'm too lazy to download and install a proper client. It's telling me someone's already completed the file!!!

Unless it just means they've completed a particular bit of the file, who knows.

index of the Hang Loose archive (lot's of stuff missing in the index, you have to find a little
bit out what's where and so on, but guess you will make it.. and aehm sorry it's a excel file) ;)

I am also downloading it and sharing it to the limit of the mediocre NTL upstream here. (200 kbits/s).
At this rate, I should have it down just in time for Christmas :) ho ho ho

Good job I'm away for the next few nights .. it might be halfway by Sunday :)

14.2% so far ..

Fluctuates between 1K and 10K.. then it'll jump to 20K for a bit and then head back to the lower figures.

But upping at 25-30K almost all the time.

Well Mate, no point us BOTH hogging the limited bandwidth of nice Mr. Bandit's PC is there :) , if you send me the completed archive I promise to put it straight into my Shareaza and power share it for as long as it took you to download it. (unless it takes you longer than a month ;) ).
And I may even sent 2 copies out to 2 lucky folk from here, and if they in turn sent out 2 copies each and same again and so on then it would only take 33 turns for the entire planet population to own a copy!! (assuming the current population is about 6 billion ;) )

mabye the mongo56.org is not the best tracker...ul rate stays between 50-60 KB/s useally I can pump up till 150 kb/s... guess you all have to wait a little till more people have downloaded everything and seed it maybe a litte so speed should be no problem anymore.. hope you have fun with the collection.. there's maybe a lot of duplicated and already online from other ftp's but maybe you will find some goodies (like some apps) ;)

have a nice night..

You are all correct......it definitely is too slow for downloading the one huge file, even on broadband. :(

Had to pause my one last night to get some other work done online, but switched it back on before hitting the sack.

It'll be worth it in the end ..

Just hope Muggie's got a dual layer burner cos it won't fit on a single layer (4.7gb) disc.

16.4% d/l so far and the speeds got a bit faster now 14kbs-21kbs.

Yep :) But at still stupid prices for the blank discs, I will probably be looking to prune some of the repeated items (if they're are any) and then look at splitting into 2 selections to make it fit onto 2 x DVD-Rs :)

Oh 8O , maybe because i've changed the limitations in my torrent client this morning?
Usually i like to keep some bandwidth for myself, but this is something different :wink: .
