Question Problems downloading first thing on the Zone list

I've noticed today that whenever you try to D/L the first thing listed on the Zone, you get a "Service Temporarily Unavailable" error. All other items listed below it D/L successfully as normal.

Is there now a delay between the archive/item being added to the list and access to the file becoming active?

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this themselves, but in the end it's not a majorly important thing to worry over anyway, I can simply wait till something newer displaces the file from the top. But I still felt I had to point this out just in case anyone else was thinking of reporting it, and saving their breaths (or rather typing time ) for them.

I think that with the HOL online, there is some strain on abime.net and therefore the Zone has less resources available...

I've seen that error message, but not only on the first item listed. And it only happened when I had multiple items downloading. After getting the message, I let the downloads already going finish and the same file that I got an error on downloaded fine for me.

some anti-leech and ressource limiter have been setup to the zone.

- just use right-click + "save as" function there.
- max 1 simultaneous download.
- download managers can fails sometimes.
- wait a few seconds before downloading.

With netscape 4.77 from university ( running linux ) it always fails. Not a great problem, at home it works.

EDIT: now it works ( it was not an eab server problem, the problem was here. )
