Though that is a sound suggestion, Jonothon, I must point out that
some broadband providers choke bittorrent traffic, additionally.. it
can sometimes be a slow process when there aren't many peers seeding
the content to you. I would recommend a Firefox plugin called
DownThemAll, a free and OSS download manager that integrates
seamlessly with Firefox.
Though don't just dismiss Bittorrent.
