Hey fellow junkies,
Been following our beloved overlord for quite some time now, since high school in fact (and that was quite a while ago), so I figured, now was the time, now was the moment, it's about damn time I gave this man some money! Couldn't wait for the next episode of The Starter, so I went over to backmybooks.com and happily put down 20 bucks so I could experience the glory of the GFL unabridged. I get the download link in my email, and the excitement is mounting, however, here's where we hit the snag in this potentially awesome moment. The download stops at 64 MB (disappointing since I was actually going very fast up until this point), so I cancel the download, try again, this time it gets 125 MB, stops. I was using Chrome, so I figured I'd see if it was the browser and tried FireFox and IE, but the error happened there as well.
Keep in mind, there is no error message, the progress abruptly stops at an arbitrary point, the download speed sinks, and eventually it just says it's done. While it says it's done, it's typically around 600MB short. On multiple attempts with the three different browsers it has stopped at between 6MB and 321MB. I've deleted the previous downloads, I've hit retry download, I've restarted my computer, ran disk clean up, rebooted my modem and router, all to no avail. I know the Great Overlord has nothing to do with this side of the business, but I was wondering if any of my fellow junkies had encountered this before or know of a fix. I sent a message to backmybooks.com through their contact page yesterday, but as I've yet to hear back I thought I'd put this out there to see if anyone else could help.
Thanks for your time Ladies and Gents.
