I was just tipped off about these. Don't know how long this will last but it's a great opportunity while it lasts.

I downloaded straight to my hard drive and no password protection. You do have to enter a name and email (to build their database I'm sure) but once done you should see a big "Download" button that allows you to save directly to your drive. And I just unpacked the files with no problems.

Slow but continues despite occasional stalls though you might have to K its A occasionally. Be prepared though

Stopped completely for me and can't raise the site. Might be my server

Tried again. No response to DL request. Might be that their server is overloaded.

might want to consider a Dl manager, dunno if a resume is possible on the host, which is cloudfront.

d1noq70lkh3rys.cloudfront.net/downloads/gx1z4rn3ih1/NASA+2Explore+-+Expeditions+30-42.zip?response-content-disposition=attachment%3bfilename%3dNASA%2b2Explor e%2b-%2bExpeditions%2b30-42.zip&Expires=1420520251&Signature=SHqSMHB16YDZgw XtRDOO8V0PgRLL~IlA1hd4zzWhvI~4mIwS3CJWDqcUYjsame4b 2S4xG3rBIXIqwltbHxrOdkeaR-fZ2HCk2Dfe8nSSFMxkey5KbX4p5ZVdnEVvnms1Jq1jSNFzeAW6 iVxUzHiqsFT4BTmbNtO~O7fkcBlLX43dIeKxtl0X5mRT5jb~GG vsvdH3FZXINMU1LhPDU~Sx4W-FwqFIGTjtsA167OwZTOr3gV28Qslnal08YkqGbnMWPTsRN8uTv qSS91wzLGq19~gZQLzjRrsCtiZ9qsuUg3Tb3WohkgifqVanpRT c7qHY1yGi9qCNLhifxnCTrbRL7w__&Key-Pair-Id=APKAIRMQFPAVB2GAEC2Q

you will notice it is a limited url. So just fill out the name and email fields with jibberish if your download fails to reinitalize and get a new url. Issue is as I mentioned I dunno if it will support resume. Which if you time out before the file completes ti could be a nightmare of rinse and repeat. I got about 3+Mb off it. 30mb/3000kB+

Id offer an alternative but I cannot think of anywhere that I could host a file this size short of XDCC via IRC.

This is the menu you should get to dl to dropbox or to your local hdd.

Using a DL manager - as always. Starting over now

Update: glad I showered today else this foot sticking in my mouth would be icky.

I've had 3 DL failures thus far. Trying again. What was that definition of a 'fool'?

It may be worth getting a dropbox account and downloading it to there. If they've done it right that would be an near instant transfer. Once you've done that dropbox will figure out how to sync the file with your hardrive. And once that's done you can forget about dropbox. Might be the best solution for you.

Okay, when I tried it the first time I only got the download to dropbox. When I tried it just now, I got the smaller download button. Downloading it now.
