titile says it all its infuriating to have it take this long to download only 20mb =/ makes 56k looking blisteringly fast

with bt and this many people obviously downloading would get it in no time

We can't set up a Bit Torrent feed for this since there is no way of seeing who is downloading our files that way. If you restart your download now, you should get about 40k/s - that's what I've just got from here at home.

Just a note - There appears to be something wrong with the java. If you clear your cash and restart your computer - you may find you have more luck

still 0.00kb so far...than'st nr 24 hours after first trying...

what would be my next move to get my update to 8.2?

can they [newtek] not offer a cdrom to be posted out if the internet download carries on NOT working for 99% of those who are after it in the u.k.?

Steve you should be able to get great rates now from our server. I'm currently downloading at 70k/s - admittedly not as fast as earlier this evening where I was receiving the file at over 200... :)

?? How is that important? Isnīt this also a demo version with a 14 day limit or something?

Agreed. Use a MD5 or SHA Hash to verify the file is original and there is nothing to loose with a distributed download system.

I would be a little hesitant downloading that thing anyway. 8.2 has already
proven to be quite unstable. With me personally, it crashed in the first 2 minutes.
