i am almost finished downloading Borland Delphi PE which is 140.76MB on a bad 56k connection (M$N). what are the chances of it being corrupt?

What's your source? If its IRC then it will probably be sweet.

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 :(

try to get an md5 file with it. then check its md5sum against what it has given you.

I'm confused; why hasn't kermie closed this yet? Every time I mention piracy, they delete my post or close my thread! DAMMIT!!

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.
