Uhm, what is the problem with splitfile downloads? Yes, it LOOKS intimidating, but it's quite usable by the average cubicle monkey let alone freenet-using geek. We can't make it much more transparent, because of issues with resource usage - we MUST have the user confirm the download at some stage, otherwise it can be exploited very badly. There may be workarounds for this of course. -- Matthew J Toseland - [EMAIL PROTECTED] Freenet Project Official Codemonkey - http://freenetproject.org/ ICTHUS - Nothing is impossible.
