OK, I go to the Filefront website, and I wait ALMOST 20 MINUTES BEFORE THE D/L BOX POPS UP FOR DC(traffic jam lol). Then I click the link to download it and to my suprise, the next box prmpting me to Open or Save comes up, so I click SAVE. I look at the status bar, and I see its going @ ONE KILOBYTE PER SECOND!!!!!!! MY GOD! Not to be rude or anything, Filefront needs multiple download servers. If they already have multiple servers, add more. I am not waiting 10 hours to get DC. I HAVE CABLE!!!! And none of the mirrors are empty, but I found 1 website that actually has DC0.38d so get it here But I warn it may be slow, but none the lesds faster than FileFront

Both of those problems occurred because 1 web server overloaded and 1 download server overloaded during the release of that file. It looks like you had the misfortune of being directed to both of them.

We do have multiple download servers. It would be impossible to distribute millions of files per week through only 1 download server.

What are you complaining about now Capt Someguy?Just because you have cable does not mean u will Dl fast all the time especially if the other side is congested or they have a low upstream.Just last week u had 56k and was complaining about the size of DC .38 now u complain about filefront's servers.Tell you what,send them some money and also to all those people you complain about who provide you with "free" stuff and in return you can complain all you want
