Im downloading them via torrent, so the whole network, is extremely slow, took me a while just to load this page up. Anyway, 3/4 of the downloads are doing well, they are in the 60%s now, while one, a very important one, is going ever so slowly. 600MB, at a rate of 4kb/s. So, is there a website, in which you input the values, and it tells you approx; how long it shall take - does anyone know any? Ive Googled for the past half hour, but none of my searches seem to result in anything useful. Anyone care to shed some light? James __________________

With math: 1,024 Kilobyte (KB) = 1 Megabyte (MB) You're getting 0.00390625MB/S so 0.00390625x=600 x=600/0.00390625 x=153600 seconds = 2560 minutes = 42.66 hours So in the end, Time Remaining Formula = ((B) / (A/1024)) / (3600) Where A is Kb/s and B is total MB remaining __________________ __________________ traffic in the skyy
