Hydraulics problem

I know, it's been confirmed to open properly. I was too sleepy to check the modem error count. They recently switched me to a different copper pair and cut it beyond my house, which reduced the line noise considerably, but the wires are all the same age.
Do you have a file size of 91,265,098?

I finally went back to it and started the download, then told FF to save the file as a PDF, then stopped the download to the browser. It saved just fine and is working now. It just wouldn't read in the browser for some reason.

BTW -- Any chance of putting up "TDDR-50 F-4D trouble shooting manual (1967)" (Navy, I think) if you know where to find it? I've been going nuts trying to find that one for a project I'm working on. (It is a manual for the F-4D fighter aircraft, and I'm looking for it to find the pinout information on an HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator). I've buzzed out quite a bit of information about the 96 leads (two connectors -- 41-pin and 55-pin) and some missing amplifiers which the smaller connector should go to.
Thanks, DoN.

Hmm ... wget is predicting about 8 minutes on a T1 connection. I'll go play a game while that is downloading to see whether what I get is readable.
Download time was: 8m 23s
O.K. 292 pages, with all that I (randomly) checked readable, so the file is not bad at all.
Enjoy, DoN.

First try download was 8m 23s with "wget". Displays fine with "xpdf". Same with Acrobat reader. *But* you need to get the whole file before it will work. I think that PDF puts some critical information at the end of the file, so if you don't get it all, you can't view it. 87 MB is the short form, the actual byte count was 91,265,098.
I think that you need to re-try -- and maybe you'll get a better routing this time.
Good Luck, DoN.

!@#$%^&*. Why didn't someone post that before now? I've read some might large files, but didn't know there was a limit in browsers. Perhaps a note next to the large-file link next time?

I did. Earthlink dropped out twice last night after downloading 20-30MB. This morning I lost them while browsing, but BasicISP is fine. However their 4-hour timeout limits downloads to about 65MB. Neither of them is completely reliable here, nor is the cellular service. -jsw

Jim, use wget:

I'm using Linux now but the Windows binaries always worked fine for me.
This will let you download partial files and automatically restart downloads when the server drops a connection. I tested Iggy's server/file and it does allow you to stop/restart downloads. Not all servers are set up that way though.
Try taking the partial download you currently have and while having a Windows command prompt open in that directory type:
wget -c
formatting link

=== from wgets manual -c --continue Continue getting a partially-downloaded file. This is useful when you want to finish up a download started by a previous instance of Wget, or by another program. For instance:
wget -c ftp://sunsite.doc.ic.ac.uk/ls-lR.Z
If there is a file named ls-lR.Z in the current directory, Wget will assume that it is the first portion of the remote file, and will ask the server to continue the retrieval from an offset equal to the length of the local file.
Note that you don't need to specify this option if you just want the current invocation of Wget to retry downloading a file should the connection be lost midway through. This is the default behavior. -c only affects resumption of downloads started prior to this invocation of Wget, and whose local files are still sitting around.
Without -c, the previous example would just download the remote file to ls-lR.Z.1, leaving the truncated ls-lR.Z file alone... ===
Trust me, give it a whirl ;-)

Too big for whom? It depends on what program you use to view it, and how much memory your computer has. So that warning would be useless for some, and likely ignored by others. IIRC, the download site tells you the size. It is then up to *you* to know whether it is too big, with *your* computer's memory and such, to view the file.
Today's browsers try to view in a java program in the browser, instead of downloading it and passing it to a stand-alone program which only views PDF files.
You can configure most browsers to download and save instead of attempt to display it -- and you can download a copy of Adobe Acrobat for most systems to view the file. Download it, save it, and then exit the memory hog browser and start up Adobe Acrobat (or whatever other PDF reader you have which is *not* part of a browser.
Good Luck, DoN.

I need a new computer. I'm up to 2G of RAM, but that's not enough for Win7 and all the windows I have open on a daily basis. I was running 97% full memory this evening when opening extra tabs in FF for all the goodies in today's Gizmag email.

In the past, Windows has created ramdisk memory to store files larger than viewable with existing RAM.
I believe I have Acrobat Reader for Firefox, which should have worked, but it didn't. Must check into that...
I have Acrobat Reader, which successfully opened it after download.

I'll check it out. AR has been giving me "may be farked" messages on 3/4 of the downloads lately, but they have been displaying flawlessly.
P.S: See how easy it is to snip, and include only the relevant info? It took maybe 3 seconds to do.

If MS would keep updating it, I'd much prefer to stick with XP, which I still view as MicroSloth's peak in the Windows world. But now that they aren't updating, virii are a much larger problem.

I ran XP without any updates from March 2013 to March 2014 and had no problems. AVG caught a few things it didn't like.
I make Seagate Disk Wizard backups of C: to DVD-DLs that can be booted and restored from a read-only DVD drive. A virus would have to hide in the BIOS or a peripheral to get back in after that, since I don't network my on-line PC to the others, and the strict restrictions on the account I browse with make that difficult. jsw

Jim, I believe that there is software out there that can resume downloading from the point where it was interrupted, and not from the beginning.
I know that wget does it with the --continue option.
