...hm. When I was using a dialup account, I never had problems getting
NetBSD .tar.gz files. It took a while, but my ISP wouldn't kick me off.
Maybe ISP's run a different game, now. Or maybe the small-time, local
ISP's in Kansas City were just cool. (^& (Now, I've got DSL via an RBOC.
DSL is nice. I can't say that I'd recommend using a big ISP though, and
may try to switch off of mine after my year is up.)
If you can't download big files due to a screwey ISP, you might consider
getting someone to send you a CD. Bob Nestor, I think, was quite happy to
burn sources onto CD's (see Bob's Budget CD's). Probably Wasabi would,
too. Or ask a friend with a CD-burner and a fast feed.
