Re: having trouble downloading the tutorial in zipped file

I didn't say you didn't have a slow download.  I'm saying that that is your individual experience and when I said I was skeptical, I meant that I am very skeptical that your problem is a general one.  I didn't say that clearly in that message but I did in either a preceeding or a follow-up one.  Based on one person's experience, that is not grounds to say that a faster site is needed.  If the problem was widespread, that would be different.  But we have not seen any other complaints about slow downloads, by which I mean half an hour or hour downloads.

If it was, then that would be very uncommon.  It may be that, just having
been announced, a lot of people, far more than usual, tried to download the
file at the same time.  But I'm skeptical because we heard no reports from
others and if there were such an issue, we would expect to see people
talking about how slow the download is or that they couldn't do so.
Therefore, I'm very skeptical.

It might be a a bandwidth issue. its a very slow connection and a very large
file. Its only running at 1.2meg a second here with long pauses as it goes
along.
