    Unhappy Struggling to download...

    I'm struggling to download GIMP for MAC OS X and was wondering if someone else could give it a blast for me?

    The link is found on Download (OS X Tiger 10.4.11 version) and it's a Sourceforge download. I've tried a couple of mirrors but nothing much seems to happen.

    Downloading now, takes a couple of mins. If you still haven't got it, I'll post it somewhere for you.

    Got it, here's the download link - will leave it on for an hour or so

    Link not needed therefore removed

    Sussed it... it seems that the Mac was hating the Smoothie proxy for this one file... odd!

    Bypassed the content filtering and it's now downloading fine (if somewhat slowly).

    Odd!
