I wonder if this is part of the problem revs is talking about.

I can tell you it's not extremesims. :) I will tell you that a lot of those "speed download" programs are very very poorly written, and don't properly close sockets when done. A proper browser (like OW) and a good webserver will do just fine without a silly "downloader" program.
