It’s like waking up Christmas morning and getting exactly what you wanted.
Anyway, I got my ISO and checked the MD5SUM, and I’m burning it to CD as I write. My download speeds were between 200kbps and 700kbps off the Argonne National Laboratory page, if you’re looking for a host with decent speed.
For my own part, I’ve also downloaded the torrent files and I’ll seed for a long while to come. In most cases I get better consistent bandwidth off an http download, and then I can start seeding quicker. I’ll have to keep track of how much I upload, just for curiosity’s sake.
