You probably would like to know how I survived. In truth, I owe it all to one piece of software; Mipony.
Mipony is a download manager that works with sites like Rapidshare, Hotfile and Megaupload. You simply enter the URL and let this thing do it’s job. It queues all of your downloads for you an willseveral types of premium accounts, but won’t give you any increased speeds, or decreased waiting-times. It simply lets you queue all you downloads, and not have to touch your computer until they’ve finished.
Enjoy it, I did!
