First, I don't see any indication that this is the place to reach the UE developer. Is it?
Second, I'm having a terrible time downloading UE 2.5. Whether I download from Sourceforge or the Tampa mirror, on my Windows box or my Ubuntu 8.10 box, I get never more than 93 kb/s and usually in the 60s and 70s. That's *k*bps, not mbps! And, if that isn't bad enough, it keeps just stopping--constantly, after only a few minutes.
What does it take to get a good download of this!? Can't Sourceforge and/or its mirrors do better than that? If not, can I get a premade DVD of it?
Also, what's the state of UE's development?
