Having Trouble Downloading Beta

Hi,

I'm trying to download the Beta, and the server is either really slow or it is getting stuck.  I checked and I can download from other sites but I can't seem to get the setup to download :(

Hi Rod. It's about 7.4 megabytes, I assume there is some Internet congestion between us and you. (You might want to try downloading with a different browser, if you have one, in case that's the problem.)

If you still can't get it by tomorrow email me and I'll find some other way to get it to you.

I couldn't get it downloaded at home, so I downloaded it at work :)

Using IE5.5, I get the error:

"The Plugin did not intialize," and then "

The plugin was found, but an error in the plugin has occurred." 

I've noticed this before when downloading files with the suffix ".exe" which means I've messed up some plugin configuration of IE5, but cannot locate plugin settings in the options.

Bob, after you click on the link in the email, try right-clicking on the download link (in IE) and choose "Save Target As..."

That might force IE to download the dang thing.
