To which I say, "Large as compared to what??"


Apparently I over-reacted to an unfortunate incident. Because of what is
alleged to be a modem incompatibility problem file transfers go in fits and
starts. Large files (over 100k) are particularly slow. (FWIW I use a
Zoltrix ZX-288 modem which, when it gets on with my service provider works
at 28.8k). I had a large mug of coffee while receiving a 4-page Acrobat
document which I wasn't expecting.
