Is there a mirror site for the videos on newtek.com? I get like, 20kbps, so it takes almost 20 minutes to download a short clip...

Heavy traffic? It's pretty useless to me at this pace!
Hopefully it will get better... :eek:

I recently got done watching all the videos there, I don't recall ever having a problem with the download speed, and this ol' laptop is no downloading monster that's for sure.

Just tried the BRDF one, it only took a couple on minutes to complete, speed plateaued at 69.5 KB/s so I'm not sure why it should be so slow for you. Before, I just kept downloading as I was watching and I never had to wait.

I can't think of anything that might help I'm afraid, just thought I'd let you know it's ok for me.
