Hmmm what happened to my download????? Did it crash????
Oh! I guess it finished already :)

You have time to get up before a 6 MB download finishes? It should take about 15 to 20 seconds.

Dude don't complain. Some people have to settle for 28k because their phone line is too crappy to handle 56k. Not that I'm in that situation (I got dsl!), but you should be grateful! :D
