Smarter downloads
When you're offered a choice of sites from which to make a download, based on geographic location, the inclination is to choose the site that's closest to you. But this isn't always the best choice. The idea is to find the site that's the least busy at that time. Go for the site at which the local time isn't a heavy download period. For example, if you're on the East Coast of the United States and want to download at 10:00 a.m., your best choice might be a West Coast site where the time is 7:00 a.m. While people in Californian are still eating breakfast, you can often have those servers all to yourself!
