Pretty danged good... but using 'get' or ftp is not a proper comparison
to file transfer using Windows clients.

And of course, I wasn't saying there wasn't a problem, or that 7.5-8.5MB
was 'normal' and/or couldn't be improved upon with some tweaking... I
was simply pointing out that it wasn't quite 'disastrous', as he
initially suggested...
