Very slow download of 0.7.4

Good morning. Have searched to see if this has been reported and found zip. When I click on the link on the download page and download starts it is so slow that indications become that it may take a very long time to download. The 29.7 meg download has always completed in under a minute in the past.

System is Vista on an HP TouchSmart All-in-One.

Thinking it may just be my PC I went to a second PC running calibre for another group and while it runs XP on a 1yr old desktop, it showed it would be a very long download.

I've stopped the download on both PC's and await your wisdom if I'm doing something wrong or not. Thanks in advance.

I had the same experience downloading the Windows installer this morning, it appears to be the download server.

Thanks Greg. I went to Sourceforge and their download worked fine.

Appreciate your quick response.

Oops, looks like SourceForge has 6.17 not 7.4 even tho it's link is called out. So I guess I'll just wait.

Thanks Charles I found that and 0.7.4 works fine. Someone might let SourceForge know that putting the oldest first instead of the newest is not exactly a user friendly method.
