      Bill, thanks.  I receive no message from Firefox about download time or anything like that.  It almost makes me think that nothing is actually being downloaded at all.

      Anyway, will wait and I appreciate your efforts in helping.

      They do download but very slowly. My guess is Mark might be hosting his own web site at home and upload speed could be limited by his ISP. I have one and hope to have the other in 25 hours or less (so says Firefox). I have 3.5GB of space on Dropbox and with Marks permission I will upload them there and then share with the list. Please be patient.

      Alberto, using Firefox here as well.  But there is no indication that the file is downloading.  There are no temporary files that have been created in any subdirectory on my computer.  I never receive a pop-up to save the file.  Bottom line - nothing is being downloaded.  :-(

      I just copied and pasted (for a test) the first link :

      The problem is that the  chowdanet.com  server is quite slow, the download proceeds at about 25 kB/s,
      so I will terminate it, as the ETA is about 14 hours...
