Switched from Firefox to Seamonkey in lieu of clearing cookies, worked fine on 1st try after that.

Just now after getting a plotskateers email I tried again and while it downloaded successfully, when I tried to open it it said it was damaged.
Hope this info helps.

I just attempted to download the Rocket Mass Heater Manual and it still appears to be corrupted... "Oh bother", said Pooh! And thanks for all your hard work, Cassie.

Julia Winter wrote:I had to try three times to get the RMH manual to download properly. I'm on a mac and using Safari. This first time it took forever to download and then wouldn't open, second time not as long to download but still wouldn't open, third time was a charm. The first time was soon after getting the email with the link, second time was the next morning and the third time was maybe a day later.

Many thanks for this.

I am running Windows 7.
Latest Firefox, latest Chrome
Clicked on link from Firefox. I have it setup to always ask to download.
When opening the PDF in chrome I get a "Failed to Load PDF Document" Error
cli commands done from cygwin on the file:
Tried Right-click Save Link as method - Firefox
Tried using Chrome Right-click Save Link as method
I got a different file size each time.
When viewed in a text editor the beginnings of each file seem to be the same.
The download seems to be ending prematurely.
I'm on a 1.5MB connection, maybe it's too slow and the connection is resetting mid stream?
Maybe server is having memory / swap issues? What does htop look like?
I hope this helps
