    I also use a Mac running OS X 10.11.1 with Safari 9.0.1. Downloading from my machine should be identical to downloading to yours, since we're both clicking a forum link to get it from Dropbox -- I created them, but I'm not hosting them myself. Other variables could be connection speed, system memory, and hard disk speed.

    The files range in size from 8.4 MB to 665 MB (the Eagle/Premier manual). The Technical Manual is the smallest one, actually. You may want to try to right click on the link and choose Download Linked File to download the file to disk, instead of just clicking to open the PDF in your browser.

    Joe,

    I tried your right click download link suggestion. The session eventually timed out with 0 KB downloaded. I'm also using an iMac running OS X 10.11.1 with Safari 9.0.1. No firewalls.

    Fwiw: I have Charter Spectrum w/ 60 MB rate download capability. (Verified)

    I just tried the link again and it worked fine. I'm in the northeast US; it's possible that the data isn't on some other Dropbox servers and it's having trouble syncing/resolving to the more local servers, or something like that. I'm pretty sure Dropbox uses Amazon S3 to store their files (like many others do), so you'd think they wouldn't have those issues.

    I was going to upload them directly to my website, but my host (SquareSpace) really doesn't want to become a file server, so they only allow 20 MB per file upload, so I can't put most of them up there.

    I've decided to try something else, archive.org. They'll basically keep files you upload forever as part of their internet archive. Seems like a good place for DMC manuals. From this page you can click to download the individual PDFs (click "PDF" on the right to see them), or download a torrent if you want to try it that way.
