Since we seem to have the site running smoothly again we have moved the Download A Day links back to the store. You will find them under SAS Gifts and each link will be active for 3 days. Thanks and Enjoy the party!

Thanks for all the effort. Nice to know the slow speeds are just because of growth. Its at least a positive thing overall.

I have made three attempts to load these links to no avail. Am I the only one who can't get them to load? After several hours of trying and thinking I have them, when I try to unzip them, the message says I need to archive them? O help......what have I done wrong?

hmmm.... I've never gotten a message like that before... what program are you using to unzip the files?

sorry I can't be of more help! :o

WinZip......I have never had any issues with it before now. I do have dial-up, and it does however take me awhile but these files are more then small enough for me to have a successful download. But I have never had a message like this either. If it is not resolved, I suppose I shall not play. But I want to Thank You for your help.

Try running disk cleanup and make sure that temp files is checked. That usually works for me! good luck.

just have to ask, cuz I know nothing about web traffic, but might not everyone posting trying to get to the big prize, also be a cause for slowing down?

Maybe could change that everyone who makes 50 or 100 or some number of posts gets entered into a drawing?

Since this is my first --- I have a real long way to catch up!

That is so strange! I would definitely take Tess' advice and delete your temporary files! Most of the time that works! If not, give us a shout and I'm sure we can brainstorm and try to figure out what the problem is! :)

Sometimes, that happens to me when using Internet Explorer. Usually I can solve it by copying and pasting the link (or opening the page) in Mozilla Firefox, which, imho, is the best browser to download stuff. It should be OK there.
Also, Winzip is a good program to unzip files. I don't know which one you're using, but it can't be just that because you can't get the files to load, can you? Seems to me like a browser problem.
So, I'd try a different browser, preferably Mozilla, and Winzip.
Before you do, clean up your temporary internet files, delete the previous downloads of these files (if any), and don't forget to empty your recycle bin. We tend to forget that deleting something on the computer only places it somewhere else lol.
It might also be a good idea to download it to a different location this time: for example, if you did it before to My Documents, try Desktop now. Or the other way around.
If you still have problems, feel free to email me at morgaines.mail@gmail.com and I'll try to help you some more.
I hope it works out for you, this is a lovely download!

Thank you. Appreciate your efforts. You have a great site. Really enjoying week one of the competition. Awesome talent.

I am thrilled with how the speed has picked up, I think having the DADs on another server has made the difference. We have has 147 people just in the forum at one time and it did not slow down like this. I am still going to move the forum and gallery to ensure that the site stays speedy, we have grown enough and this will be a good step to give us growing room but at least I have a little breathing room in getting the move done.
BTW, someone mentioned that since this is their first post that they had a long way to go to catch up to win our Post the Most contest, that prize is worth over $200. The way the contest works it is the amount of posts durning the month not the total of all posts ever made,so this way everyone has a chance to win if you are a little bit chatty and helpful.

Thank You very much for the links. You are going above and beyond and then taking it even higher then that. No one could ever expect so much. Your hard work and generousity is mind bogalling. I don't know how you manage to do so much.... thank you!

Exactly. I took a snapshot of everyone's posts as of August 31st. I'll be comparing the totals on October 1st to find the amount posted in September only. So everyone, no matter how active they've been in the past, has an equal chance at winning the grand prize.

I only got here today. I haven't even seen the newsletter yet.
I was surprised to see the links. I haven't seen them unpacked
yet but I did want to thank you for the pleasant surprise. It's my
lucky day as they say.

This is a wonderful contribution and I'm already working with it. Thank you to all of the designers.

I do have one question, though. When I download each contribution, I get a screen asking about seeing secure and non-secure items at least three times during the checkout process. This is the only site that I visit that has these screens and I wonder why? Can I make them go away?

I've also seen this on a couple of other sites lately. It seems that it has only been occurring in the last month or so and it's not in all stores.

Want to add my thanks here for the 4 designers that are doing this super wonderful gift.

And Julie, the site is running pretty good now compared to the first of the month. It just shows how popular this one is.

Do you guys have Vista & IE7 because I do and I get these Security pop-ups all the time. They drive me mental. Of course it could also be from Zone Alarm or Avast but I think it is Microsoft. RRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you recently done a Window's update? I noticed I was getting these security messages after doing a Window's Security update a few weeks ago. I believe they are just a warning in case you don't trust the site. I usually just hit "OK" and continue on my merry way! :D

I know there is a way to shut off your warning messages, I just can't remember how... I will go and poke around and see if I can figure it out! :)

That would be fantastic. I always hit OK, too, because I was the one who instigated the link to the website but it really is getting annoying.

okay, I think your problem is with the User Control Settings in Vista! My laptop is Vista and I hated those things too! Every time you try to open a program, a box would pop up and say something like "This program is trying to open. If you started this program, click continue... yada, yada, yada..." Is this the problem that you're having?? If so, it's an easy one to fix... just go to the User Control Settings and turn them off! I'll be right back to let you know exactly where to find the Settings to turn them off, if you don't already know... I never remember these things, I usually just find them while I'm playing around! LOL! :D

09-10-2008, 04:22 PM
That isn't the one I was speaking of but it also is annoying. I just went through most of the settings in the Control panel and also in IE but didn't see what you are speaking of. If you happen to see it, would you just pm me please? I feel like I've hi-jacked this Thread. lol Thanks so much for trying.

Is there anything I can do to still get them? Pretty please...

I was under the impression that we could get all the downloads until Thursday and there is nothing on the ones that are listed. Does anyone know why?
If they aren't on the Store, where are they?

Yes, they left Days 1-11 up until Thurs. night (9/11)... now, the downloads are only available for 3 days. So Days 13-15 are available today, tomorrow will be Days 14-16, and so on... They should be listed in the shop, under SAS Gifts. :)

hmmmm.... I don't see it either.... I'm sure it will be posted as soon as they can get to it! But, the good news is that Day 12 is still up if you haven't gotten it yet!! :D

It's 5:22 EDT and the link for Day 15 still isn't activated. But being as they are leaving each link up for 3 days, we should be able to get it tomorrow. I hope. :)

Well, the only thing I can think is that, with all of the Birthday Bash events going on (judging, voting, posting, etc...) that they are all very busy and just haven't had time just yet to get it posted! I'm sure they will post it as soon as they are able, and most likely will leave it up for an extra day to make up for it being late! :D

Hey, can you tell we all need our DAD fix?!!! LOL!! :p
