    Download Managers

    Download Managers - Do you use one, and if so, which one? (this mostly applies to dial-up users =)... I've had GetRight for a while now, but would like to find one that's freeware, anyone?

    I have broadband and i use Getright.

    The only reason i have getright is that i sometimes download files that are very big and not even broadband internet connection can download them in a day. Plus i have it cos u never know when u might have to reboot your computer and i could be downloading at that time.

    Its your connection that makes it hard to finish a file in a day, its either where you are downloading it from had a bad upload speed or that you are downloading over a gig.

    Its not your connection that makes it hard to finish a file in a day, its either where you are downloading it from had a bad upload speed or that you are downloading a single file over a gig (what the hell would that be?).

    Depends. If you are taking it from your browser or soemthing, yes you would need it. Then again, if you were using a program like Hotline you wouldn't.

    When I had dial up I used Download Accelerator a lot more. I use it occasionally for the pause and resume feature, if it is an extremely large file.

    Some small college in the US recently implemented something like that. Cisco did it for them. They made a pretty good deal actually. The college received a large discount in exchange for Cisco being able to test new products on their computers.

    From what I hear, you can have real time live video conferences that are of very high quality.
