When you check out, you will find in addition to the full or upgrade price, a $9.98 annual fee. What is up with that? I canceled my order.

My task for the day(s) was to transfer about 6 GB of websites from one host to a new host. I dreaded the thought since my cable is slow uploading. I've actually owned ForkLift for a while, but had not used it until this task remembering it could be logged into two ftp sites at the same time within the split window. It is unfortunate that neither host supports the FXP protocol...

I did have some problems and was unable to tell if it was one of the hosts or my cable, which throttles uploads. Somewhere along the line FL did start crashing pretty far into a large transfer and I was having a dickens of a time managing which folders got updated and which didn't (the Sync Browsing really helped). I sent in a bug report and included the crash log file.

I was really surprised when someone wanted to iChat with me - someone I didn't know. Within a few lines I found it was Mudi from BinaryNights! Mudi provided a lot of suggestions and got me going - I was using a G4 and they had not fully tested the new version with one. The next day, Mudi contacted me again and said they found the bug after they setup a G4 and tested it themselves.

I'm an old Fetch guy, but I've switched to ForkLift as my primary ftp application, not only the unique features (today and for the future), but for the support.

I had purchased a drafting program on line which was a 2.6 GB download. Every browser I tried failed many times before reaching 1.5 GB.

I happened onto a message in the drafting forum mentioning Speed Download. I downloaded and installed it. It downloaded the 2.6 GB file on the first try and did it about 30% faster, according to its statistics.

I have since purchased Speed Download and use it not only for downloads, but also uploads. Comcast seems to throttle uploads after the initial start to about 35KB/s. Speed Download ups the throughput to 47-48 KB/s and allows multiple uploads.
