Hi All,

I am trying to download OZ 3.5.3 and 3.5.4RC but some of the files seems to be impossible to download (usually the hd image files). I am using Firefox on Ubuntu Hoary. The downloads start very slow, continue very slow and then simply stop after some kilobytes. Some of the smaller files come fast for some reason unlike the big ones. It may well be that the server is under heavy load and stops these downloads when higher priority web tasks are at hand.

Are these files published on the sf.net WEB area? Because in this case I understand why.

Why dont' the OZ team use sf.net download sites? They are mirrored all over the word and are FAST.
If the files are in the sf.net WEB area, I believe they should be moved to the Files area because the WEB area is simply not designed to handle highly popular downloads.

It may also be a good idea to use bittorrent for distribution. I would certainly let some of the images on my machines for others.
