free downloads are very time consuming

Miscellaneous subjects not necessarily technical

Dear Editors,

I want to ask you if you propose to improve/change the download mode of the free downloads files as it is very time consuming, especially for the double issue of summer.

I think the ftp, that Circuit Cellar uses over the years, it is very convenient to the readers.

Kind Regards

We value our own products to the extent of not tossing them in big files for everyone to just grab without so much as identifying themselves. Hence no anonymous ftp-ing on the Elektor website.

Hi there Mr Editor

Not only are free downloads time consuming.....
I am failing to achieve the objective !

Now given that I am a Subscriber and you have my email address - would it not be a "good idea" for you to send me the free Magazine downloads directly ?

I realise that this stops the Adverts etc, but it is becoming beyond a joke viewed from this end.
Can you please help us ?

Update to yesterdays post.

Thank you for the Elektor Project Binder.

I have downloaded the current magazine - but am told the file is corrupt and cannot be opened.
I tried twice, same result.
