Ah yes.

I remember when windows xp was first pirated and back when files were a rar file split into hundreds of parts. My mates and I would all use the glorious GetRight application to download 3.5Mb files slowly over dial up until we all had all the files downloaded so we could combine them for the rar file to successfully be able to extract.

Took weeks to download enough for a writable cd worth.

This was pre service pack xp too. This also reminds me of how many times I had to format due to all the damned worms that got picked up for just sniffing on the net.
