      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      UPDATE on Upgrade   02/07/2017

      We were somewhat delayed on getting the upgrade done, but it looks like it will now be done in the next few days or possibly even later today.   There is one change coming with the new upgrade that may affect people when they log in. There will no longer be separate Usernames and Display Names. Your Display Name will now be the only name you have for the forum and, if you used your Username to log in, you will now need to use your Display Name. It is likely that everyone who visits after the upgrade will need to log in again, so please keep this in mind.   Update again - Feb 7 - We have completed the main part of the upgrade and we are working to tweak settings for the site.  It will probably take us a while, but we will eventually settle down to the way we want it.  In the meanwhile, your posts should be secure, but the look of the forum and some functions may change over time.

Need Clean Free Download Manager

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I use a 56k modem for downloading, and my ISP disconnects after 1hr, then I can re-connect.

 

The problem is I want to download a large file that will take much longer to download that 1hr.

 

I am looking for a clean free download manager that will allow me to download a file in sections, then will let me knit the sections together on my pc.

 

Can anyone recommend a good dowloader

 

Thanks.

 

PS. OS is Windows Vista 32 bit

As far as I know it does his job, but mind: It will always pop up. At every download.. but as you say, with such a low internet it's a good choice ;) You can also download flash movies with it so... ;)

 

(meaning free download manager)
