I dont know if this might be something being looked into. But maybe using Torrents for some of these REALLY big files?

If your browser supports it (which it doesn\'t yet, since no browsers I know of supports it) the mirror network broadcasts magnet links together with the list of mirrors when you press the download link.

Work has been done on a .torrent file creator, so that part is ok. At the moment we are looking into a dynamic or perhaps even distributed tracking facility to remove the need of a central tracker entirely. This would limit the torrent download ability to the few clients with the new Kademlia DHT trackerless tracking (Azureus for instance) but would decrease the load on the central server dramatically.

At the moment, however, the mirror network is not even 10% saturated, so you should be able to get some pretty nice download speeds. If not consider installing Getright (or similar) and add more than one mirror to the list when downloading.

Yesterday I have received 1 WU and this one is running now since 18h and got nearly done 54%.

My problem is - the deadline ends for me today at 23.45 - I think it is not possible for me to close this WU within time.

EDIT - due to I have not received any response, and after Benchmark the WU start again by 0% and the dead line was reached, I have aborted the WU - sorry.
