Just a comment, the host mirrors.xmission.com they are using for this file seems to not have enough good bandwidth to host a file this big...download has failed about a dozen times in the last day. I'm using Interarchy so I can resume it, but "starving students" may not have the luxury of buying an app that will resume http downloads. Maybe an ftp alternate link here would help out. Or a suggestion of a freeware app that will do it.

Took me quite awhile yesterday to download the app, I had to stop the download maybe three times (the download kept slowing down) and resume it, with each resumption the bandwidth speed was quite good.

All browsers support resuming downloads.

Use Bit Torrent. 20 minutes instead of 20 hours :)

We created 'SSS' because we love Open Source software and want to help make it more accessible to students all around the world. Although all students need good software to be successful, many have a hard time getting it on student budgets. We empathize with them because weÕve felt that pinch ourselves. This software enables students to achieve more for less, and that inspires us. People all over the world are using free software to make their lives better.

After all of these years of mooching off of great volunteer programmers, this is our little way of saying thanks. By providing a tool that makes their great free software more accessible to software-hungry students from Boston to Bangalore, we feel weÕve given a little back to the free software community and to students all over the world. We are proud and happy to do so.
