What's witht the .exe's when dling a file

I was downloading a debial iso to a directory in my E: drive.  In
the middle of it I got a popup saying that my C: drive was filled and
that there wasn't room for an [somerandomlookingstring].exe there.

Why is moz creating an exe for a download?

Unless your %TEMP% dir was on your E: drive, you were downloading to C:. 
That's why it "filled up". Mozilla pays no mind where you want your file 
saved until after it has finished downloading to %TEMP%. If you want to 
download directly to your choice of save location, use a downloader like 
wget. If you don't want the overhead of moving a large download to your save 
location from another drive after the download is complete, use a downloader 
like wget, or make sure your save location is the same drive as %TEMP%. If 
you want to preserve timestamps of downloaded files, use a downloader like 
wget. If you want reliable downloads, use a downloader like wget. Browsers 
are poor downloading tools. Mozilla is worse than average.

There are plenty of good reasons to use wget (which you've mentioned), 
but if you use "Save Target As..." it will download directly instead of 
dumping it to %TEMP% first.

speaking of wget, is there a plugin to do a right click -> download with wget
for mozilla? :)

Get AWGET.  It is a front end for WGET.  You just right click and drag a 
link to the desktop.  The file is downloaded to whatever directory you 
have designated.  It will do simultaneous downloads.  It doesn't care 
where it gets the link; Mozilla or whatever.

There isn't one for WGet, but, PMDownloader includes one that works 
well.

Awget also monitors the clipboard for URLs. Right click and pick copy 
link location and a window will pop up asking whether to add the URL to 
awgets download queue

I don't think I ever used that. It must be enabled, in the config, for
that to work. I also don't use the desktop (that is really only for 
warp3, I think). I just keep the ToDo icon, on the desktop, and drop 
any URL, that I want, onto that. The only problems I ever have, is 
when I mess it up myself.

Hope this helps...

Yes. I had to disable it. Aside from the instability, I found it
annoying, too, because it would pop up if *anything* was in the
clipboard. I'd prefer that it pop up only with archive files, and then
empty the clipboard when it got what it wanted.

I'm on Warp 4.52 and use the desktop all the time. I usually have
something (Mozilla or Polarbar) covering the ToDo icon.

Who's show is SN? Steve's or Leo's?
I don't want to start anything (honestly)! Just want to ask a simple question. Does the Security Now podcast belong to Steve Gibson or Leo Laporte? Maybe I'm in a world all to myself, but when I listen to the excellent SN podcasts, I want to hear STEVE, not Leo. But especially in the past few shows, it seems Leo will repeatedly interrupt Steve in the middle of a sentence that I want to hear the rest of. I consider this very rude of Leo. Steve is making a point that I (we) want to hear, then looses his train of thought after Leo barges in and asks something. It...

PBL's and EXE's -- question
I have been told that it's best to keep the number of objects in a pbl down to 50 or less. I can understand the value of that, but I'm unsure of how to include more than one PBL in my project build and executable. How does this work? Second question: Is there a recommended maximum size for the executable file? I will be distributing this application to 3-5000 users, so inevitably it will be running on some low-end 486's and I want to make sure that it's not going to choke on a slow machine.

COLGROUP
When I discovered the COLGROUP tag some time ago, I was elated. What a useful style for website designers! I was bummed out to learn that it wasn't supported by my favorite browsers, Mozilla and Firebird. I contacted someone at Mozilla, and it sounded like they weren't terribly interested. Now I'm learning how to work with PHP and MySQL, and I find the COLGROUP tag more useful than ever. Yet Mozilla still doesn't support it. I don't get it. What gives? At first I read your message COLGROUP sounds like a non-standard tag, and mozilla is known to suppor...
