I've had to give up downloading the Nightly; the site and downloads are so
slow today...

No problem for me in the UK now so maybe it was a temporary glitch,
just downloaded the 26MB nightly in 47 seconds.

I've said this several times before but it's worth repeating:

If you are downloading nightlies on a regular basis, it makes *much*
more sense to get the latest updates using svn.

If you're on windows, here's how to do it:

http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?InstallSVNTrunkAsService

Those instructions are to checkout the latest trunk.

If you're prefer to use v6.5 or even a specific release, simply checkout
a different URL:

v6.5 branch:
http://svn.slimdevices.com/repos/slim/branches/6.5/

Release v6.50:
http://svn.slimdevices.com/repos/slim/tags/RELEASE_6_5_0/

If you're using linux, it's much easier, and I leave that as an exercise
for the reader. :)
