I was able download and open the file no problems. But as usual you have to click the "download" button, dismiss the ad, do it again, and so on, then eventually you get to the file...bah! I have no idea what the ads were, simply I'm not interested...why cannot they understand that? Even the free version of Dropbox is far better...The first person to successfully download the file places it in their Dropbox, give those interested permission to access it - done deal...

My Dropbox has laid dormant for the past few years, I'll see if it still works...if I remember correct you are limited to 1GB of storage for the free version...

I forgot to mention yesterday the file is a pdf of 205MB, fast 'net connection and requisite space required...

If anyone really gets stuck with download problems I can e-mail it to them, it's too big to post or PM on this forum. Make sure your in-box has enough space...PM me your e-mail...

With a little help from Google to translate Czech to English, I managed to "download slowly" (stáhnhout pomalu) without having to provide a username and password as requested for the fast download (stáhnhout rychle).

Děkuji mnohokrát.

Není zač :) There is also a flag icon, where you can change the website interface to a less obscure language.
