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
And, IMO, since he can not complete, or resume, an oridinary d/l -- you
expect him to preform a torrent d/l? God luck with that.
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.
Do not condemn the judgment of another because it differs from your own. You may both be
