Hello all,

To anyone that has downloaded from the AbyssUnderground FTP Server in the last 12 hours, there has been an issue with packet loss at the data center. Savvis, the bandwidth provider had an upstream issue out of the control of the data center so any files you may have download could be corrupt. I suggest you check the files and re-download if necessary.

From what I remember (used to teach MCSE tcp/ip, almost 13 years ago), the server sends a packet with an order number. The client then sends back an ack that he got that perticular packet, along with some checksum. If the ack never makes it back, or the checksum is wrong, the packet is retransmitted. And somewhere along the lines, depending on the settings, the connection will break if things just can't get back in sync. So packet loss should just mean a slow connection, not corrupted files.

From previous experience its often caused a corrupt file when having loss though your theory is correct, it can still happen I'm afraid.
