download madness

I have no idea how I did this. I was using WS-FTP to downlad a 2+ GB file. It took MANY hours – overnihgt + most of the morning – 12? 15?

When it was done, I got the message “overwrite file?” I thought that maybe this new version had cached the download and was now ready to overwrite the little starter test I had done. Nope. Within 1 split second, by the time I realized and hit pause, I had just replaced the 2GB file with only about 1 MB of the new download.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh. Okay, maybe I’ll have this thing downloaded by midnight.
