Re:Planted Aquaria magazine issue 2

A might big file? It's only a little over 4 Megs. I am on cable and it was 
a matter of 30 sec. or so. I understand it takes a while with 56k modem (I 
still remember days when I was using modem), but I thing better pictures 
are worth a wait. I wouldn't mind even higher resolution.
  Maybe Dave can using a file splitter ( found here 
http://homepage.iprolink.ch/~gthullen/downloads.htm) break it up into 
smaller 4 pieces which should be easier to download if you have a not 
reliable connection. You can also try program like GetRight 
(http://www.getright.com/) or Gozilla which let you resume download after 
you get disconnected or something.

Sorry if this is a little of topic

ps. Dave, what about to have an electronic version of your magazine for 
sale? If you improve picture quality I would be interested to subscribe.
