Yes, the DVD torrents. I started the DVD download last night about 
9:00PM. I went to bed at 3:00AM, with 5 hours, 20 minutes remaining of 
download time remaining. This morning I checked the file modification 
time which works out to a total download time of about 10 hours, 50 
minutes. Contrast this to downloading all 4 CDs in under 30 minutes.

I'll put my money where my mouth is and buy the DVD. At this point I'm 
probably coming off as ungrateful which is certainly not the case.
