How to download withot loosing bytes
This is just a little trick when downloading! Everybody knows about this trick, bu only for those who dosenít.
Hey this also work on BBS Board (I think)
1-Flag the files you want to download
2-Flag a last file that you donít want to (preferable Big)
4-when the BBS starts sending the last file press Ctrl-x
And bingo! The bytes you download are not recognized!

I believe they are refering to the good old BBS's that we all ventured onto in our youth.... Y'know the one where games such as LORD where taken waaay too seriously....
I think what they are trying to get at would be that some bulliten board software may only calculate the amount you'd downloaded of your limit at the end of your downloading session..
So if you killed the second file when it was being downloaded, it wouldn't regard the overall download session as complete, so you wouldn't have it taken what you downloaded from your available limit...
I'm not sure I'm making any sense, but all I can say is that it's making sense in my head......
/me asks himself to be quiet, he's trying to talk here...
