Capt'n
Whils't I was crewing the sight I had Einstien downloading new .exe and .pdb files. See b'low.

5/12/2007 1:28:10 PM|Einstein@Home|[file_xfer] Started download of file einstein_S5R2_4.17_windows_intelx86.exe
5/12/2007 1:28:10 PM|Einstein@Home|[file_xfer] Started download of file einstein_S5R2_4.17_windows_intelx86.pdb

5/12/2007 1:35:44 PM|Einstein@Home|[file_xfer] Finished download of file einstein_S5R2_4.17_windows_intelx86.exe
5/12/2007 1:35:44 PM|Einstein@Home|[file_xfer] Throughput 6791 bytes/sec
5/12/2007 1:37:13 PM|Einstein@Home|[file_xfer] Finished download of file einstein_S5R2_4.17_windows_intelx86.pdb
5/12/2007 1:37:13 PM|Einstein@Home|[file_xfer] Throughput 7783 bytes/sec
5/12/2007 1:37:14 PM|Einstein@Home|Starting h1_0284.30_S5R2__62_S5R2c_1

Now, I only have a 56K modem, which was connected at 52K, during this session. The .exe file is 3004KB and the .pdb is 4123KB.

Using higher math and the reported thruputs of above, I was running at 116592 bottles per second.

Using lower deck math, on a good day with no error correction, these files would have downloaded in 18.2743589744 minutes. Not the over all 9 minutes in the log.

I do not run any accelerator programs. That is, that I know of.
I downloaded some other sizable files and they downloaded at my normal rate.
The only differance was that I was browsing the Pirates web site. So what did the Capt'n do to double the wind in my sails.

:') I know that it is coincidence that this happened while carusing Pirates. But I would like it to happen more often ;,)>>>>

Any guess's as to what happened?

It might be possible that your modem's connection is compressed (usually is, maybe depends on the provider?) - take a look at the connection's Status dialog, General tab - You should see transferred bytes count, compression effectivity in % and error count, for both upload and download direction.
