It's been like this for two days (more accurately, 1 day, 8 hours; It was at 1.54 MB remaining two days ago). Every so often it says that it's downloading at 0.0 kB/s, which amounts to the same thing. Why the hell can't it get the last meg and a half?

So what movie are you downloading?

Actually, it's a CD image.

So what game? Or is it some fancy other software?

Hordes of the Underdark. :o

After 10 hours, I'm back down to 65 MB left--18 Kb/s... and I've got the chunk I was missing last time.

It might mean it's a bogus file and the missing part just isn't out there.

I got it from Sharereactor.

It completed the second time through.

eMule blows. Nothing is ever available.

I really like the Sharereactor/ed2k system. I like the checksumming, and I like how they divide the file into packages and share the packages instead of the whole files. It's tough to find obscure stuff, but it's hard to beat the ed2k network for popular movies and ISOs.

Provided you have a few weeks to download it.

It took 11 hours to download HotU (1 CD), and about 24 hours to download NWN and SoU (4 CDs).

I've had to resort to downloading the entire 24 series 3... damn sky and fox.
