Default Download Code won't download

I'm trying to download the "Download Code" for this book, but whether I try through the FTP or HTML, it stops at 3.6MB and eventually gives me an error message.
Has anybody else encountered this problem?
Can I get this file (4019_Code.zip) anywhere else?

Thanks in advance

More Toys. I just successfully downloaded this using the HTTP link. Possibly there was some kind of server problem yesterday when you tried and maybe if you try again now it will be working. If you still can't get it, please let us know.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the reply. I just tried both of them (FTP and HTTP) again from work and they still stop at 3.6MB
I'll try it again tonight from home (although that's where I tried it from yesterday).

It must just not like me. I just tried it again from work and still stops at the same place. I was on Live Chat twice last night. I was given a link to the FTP site (with password) and to the Wiley site and I even tried with FTP software. None of it will work. I should mention home and work are different machines and networks (not a laptop with same settings), so it can't just be my settings. I've tried with IE and Firefox. I know it's not cost effective, but a CD in the book would have kept this from happening.

I am not sure if there is a private way for me to get your address, but I can burn a CD for you and will be glad to send it to you. Maybe one of the forum admins can find a way for us to get in touch privately?

Also, the largest chapter is 5 MB. I could try to email them to you separately. Again, maybe there is a way to get your email address privately.

I just realized that you can send me an email directly by viewing my profile. Just send me an email and I will email the chapters to you. That might work. Not sure the best way, but you can click on bnews987 to see the profile.

Brian or More Toys: What what one you will need to do is send the other an email via the "email poster" link from one of your responses on this thread or from the "email member" link in the other's profile. From there, you'll be able to respond to each other by email. (Assuming you signed up using email accounts that you still use.) More Toys, I'd sent you an email doing this yesterday but don't see an email response from you yet.

Email addresses are hidden on these forums. We use a blind form to prevent spammers from getting addresses.

Jim, he emailed me last night. Also, from my house over a cable modem I cannot download the code either. It stops @ 3.6 MB for also. From a faster connection at my office I can download the code.
