We live in an awesome place in the country and love every minute of it, the only possible drawback being that our Internet bandwidth is not what it used to be 😉 .
We can’t complain though, even Netflix works, but downloading big files (such as a linux dristrib) is almost impossible.
Eventually, we realized a download manager could help us out but I could’t find anything cool for OS X until I stumbled on aria2 : a command-line download manager. How geekish !

    I enjoy playing with my computer(s), listening to Bob Dylan (and related artists) and watching movies (especially if they were directed by Martin Scorsese or John Cassavetes). Sometimes, I play a little guitar... If not doing any of the above, I am either riding a small red bike around Paris, or, making videos. About my videomaking please check out World Wide Angle and its blog.
