Just for the heck of it, I'm re-downloading the torrent using the torrent file on
. I'm getting 2.8 Mb/sec and expect the dl to be done in 30 minutes.
I am impressed Ed. Most, in my experience, torrents die quickly due to
lack of seeds. I gave up on torrents when I upgraded from telephone
lines and 56k modems. I have no idea but many, many yeaRS AGO,

A dl by torrent is generally better since you're getting data from multiple sources
via multiple paths over the internet. A ftp/http download is from a single source along a
single path. More susceptible to a failure.
Also, FWIW, when you do a wget on the DVD via fedoraproject you actually get mirror. I
just tried it and I get a mirror that is very close to me here in Taiwan. Yet, I'm
getting only 25Kb/s and the download is expected to take 2Days.
Ed... you are a great guy. But? What info you are offering him APPEARS
TO BE beyond his knowledge. IMO.
