    I once downloaded, I think it was a borland compiler (50 megs), and the file was corrupt. It was missing a file and wouldnt install.


    Well hope the same thing doesnt happen to your program.

    How long did it take anyway?

    its from the official site. so far its been around 10 hours over 3 days. would just leave it on all night but M$N disconects me so much and no auto-reconnect programs work right. Im using Download Accelerator Plus to get it.

    speed is 3.5 KB/S

    If your using a download manager like dap and the site supports resume (which I'm sure it does) you should be ok.

    Facemaster. If the download is open license, or if you pay for the download, it's not piracy.

    Well absolute power corrupts absolutely, so if you were downloading CodeWarrior, it would be absolutely corrupted. Delphi? It might be a bit corrupt.
