A lot of sites were grabing our download files when we released the new version. that may be the cause.

I just finished downloading the new build 21 and it was screaming fast, for satellite anyhow.

Are you kidding me? :o Trying to download release 22...

Edit: download stopped at 10.8 MB, file is corrupted. It's too late, so perhaps I'll be lucky tomorrow. :thumbdown:

Well I'm having the same problem with Filekicker right now. I wish they could find another/better link for Avant downloads. Filekicker is always either too busy or kicking back "File not found" and other errors. I've been trying to download build 22 for over 30 minutes now with no results..... I freaking HATE Filekicker..... :evil:
