Slowest. DL. Ever.

Recommended Posts

I don't think I have downloaded something this slow since 56K. I am getting 6 kb/s on my 6mb connection. All of the other sites I have downloaded from today have been screaming, but the server holding the MD-11 has knocked me back to the year 1995. The funny thing was it started at about 200 KB/s and started to climb, then it just stopped and dropped back to 6 kb/s. Almost like my connection got throttled. To put it into perspective, I just downloaded GEX from Flight1 in about 20 -25 min. (1.8+ GB). The MD-11, at this rate, is going to take me 5 hours (153 mb). LOLWow. Just wow. :-lol

Shane, The problem is definitely not our server - we've been nowhere close to bandwidth capacity during this release. It's likely happening somewhere in the chain between you and our server. (bad backbone router etc)

>Shane, >>The problem is definitely not our server - we've been nowhere>close to bandwidth capacity during this release.

It figures that the internet goes i the toilet the second I actually want to DL something I've been waiting for. :-lol
