I, too, would like to thank you (Jeroen, and all), for providing the
respins via jigdo. I've now downloaded 9 DVDs worth of data and I've
done it _much_ faster than I can ever remember doing it via .torrent.
In spite of the complaints by some about how hard jigdo was to figure
out, I wasn't at all bothered by the 20-30 minutes of futzing around
to get things downloading. Output and status messages are a little
quirky but I'm happy to trade the dog-slow .torrent non-sense (with
its very fine GUI interface) for this. The only improvement I'd
really appreciate is an "overall % complete" meter. But that's an
Thanks again for your good work!
