I use your freeware every single day and I can tell you it's a very cool little standalone -noadminrightsneeded- app, and there's no need, in my opinion, to integrate it to a browser !
I have just a little question, because I couldn't find the way to do it myself.
In your software's features, you say "Resumable downloads".
I have a huge download to do with a DVD iso of the Fedora Linux distribution (4 Go) and I'd like to do it in two or tree times. My question is easy as "How ?". After looking the options menu and on your website, I couldn't find a way to resume a download.
Would you be kind enough to tell me in 3 lines how can I do ?

Many thanks !

I have not used Win32get before, but ...

Enter the URL to the file to download.
It prompts you for the name to save it to.
Presumably you'll accept the default.
At some point, if you want to stop it, hit Cancel.
The download stops.

To resume, again enter the URL to the file to download.
Again it prompts you for the name.
Accept the default again.
Since the file (part of the file) already exists, it asks if you wish to replace it.
Reply, Yes.

At that point, another dialog box is brought up, with options to Resume, Overwrite, or Cancel.
Choose, Resume.

And assuming the server you're getting the file from supports resume, then it should do just that.

(A bit more then 3 lines).

Great ! It's just as you said ! The point is that, as you would have guessed, I already had downloaded a goog 1 Go of the DVD Iso file I was talking about, and didn't wanted it to vanish because of a "click and see what happen" situation.

Anyway, Thank you very much, the rube dude, and now, I can go on !-)
