Downloading Inferno



I've been trying to download Inferno 1.0, but my connection doesnt let
me get the 12 odd MB of inferno_Base, before the download page expires;

Would the developers consider making inferno_Base available in pieces
of a size which might be downloaded while the page is still live (like
the Win95 disk sets) ? 

Just curious: why not have ftp access for the distribution as opposed to
a time limited download page ? I dont suppose the mode of downloading
affects the license terms or anything, and ftp is (in my opinion) much
more convenient: if for no other reason than that most ftp servers let
you restart a prematurely terminated download but HTTP servers which
let you do that are much rarer (at least till HTTP 1.1 becomes widely 
supported)
