    Angry Downloading MySQL

    I have been trying to download mysql but i have been having a few problems. I have a 45 minute connection cut-off (Stupid fee internet) so i need a download accelerator to complete the download.

    I know that on the mysql site that the download doesnt work when downloaded with some download accelerators. Can anyone advide me on what Download accelerator works or any other advice.

    Thanks in advanced

    someone with some web space could chunk the file into smaller files using WinAce or a similar program so that you could download them piecemeal. download 1 piece, recconnect, download another, reconnect, repeat as necessary. then all you gotta do is reassemble the pieces using the program they used.

    it was only a couple years ago that every big download was broken into smaller pieces. i remember my college days of downloading warez that came in like 100 2MB pieces just to get to the last one to find it was corrupt. those were the days.
