Why did you stop or delete the file? I was timing the download to see how long it took. It was doing good for a short time.

EDIT:

It just finish up with the download. @17:52
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

@ Jack
Please use date -u as in above image, to give time in UTC. Otherwise I have no idea what time it is here. After making screenshot, looked on forum and you were not present, so I guessed the laptop had switched itself off, like you mentioned before it could.

If anyone download from this torrent please post and what file you downloaded. Why I like to know if it don't work I can fix it cause this is all new to me.

So any input will help in this project.

^ IMHO desirable that they come to the Announcement topic, and can see what Porteus is all about, see that there is an opportunity to donate, and then see they have a choice of server or torrent.

^ There is also an energy principle involved here. The fact that jack and I have made the effort, has led to Blaze getting the idea of trying something even more powerful, like Nginx. So now even more power to Porteus! 8)
