Apparently the e-mails have been delivered and the videos uploaded. Things were much better this morning. I didn't know this would turn into a political thing. I'll reconsider sending MY USA dollars to mint for support as well.

Slow download from mintinstall...

Hi all,

I've been downloading at less than 1K for like 8hours trying to download Western Quake. I've a 1.5 DSL connection and this is like dial-up speed. Is there anything I can do to speed things up?

<SOLVED>Compaq Deskpro w/bad cd drive...

Hi,
I've d/l the Cassandra ISO file and found that my cd drive won't recognize ANY disk. Is it possible to install from the ISO file any other way?
Thanks in advance!
