Any chance of giving an advance notice to those of us who are willing to
host it on our web sites so there's more than one or two sources to start
with.  I'm not talking a day or anything, just like 15-30 minutes would
suffice I imagine.  If not no biggy, I was just wondering.  :)

Well I'll basically just be re-distributing what Andreas give me.  The
server should be up to it.  wget -c should work.  It will just be an http
get anyway (ftp may or may not happen, I don't typically run anonymous ftp
on my boxes...)  BitTorrent is also another option and is resumable.  Plus
you'll end up giving back to the community by mirroring the download. :)
