How to Make Downloading More Enjoyable

Did you ever wonder how you can make downloading more fun instead of just staring at the computer screen, waiting for it to finish? Well, I found a way just this morning, when I downloaded more than 20 files…

THE DOWNLOAD RACE-FEST!!!

Yes, you read it right – the Download Race-Fest.
There are, however, certain rules about this race….

DOWNLOAD RACE-FEST RULES

1. The race is open to 4 or more contestants (er, downloads)
2. The estimated finishing time for the downloads should be a maximum of 2 minutes.

That’s all the rules….if you comply to these, then you’re ready to race!

STEPS FOR RACE-FEST

1. Download all the files.
2. Wait for them to appear in the “DOWNLOADS” pop-up list. (this mostly works best in Mozilla Firefox)
3. After the Downloads box appears, click on the maximize button at the upper-right corner.
4. See your downloads racing….watch which one of them will win first place, second place……until last place, teehee~

MAKE THE RACE MORE FUN

Of course, nothing works best but capturing the race in pictures (or in video)!
Press Print Screen somewhere in the race and save it in Paint. You can even make a scrapbook in pictures from Paint….using those that you captured on screen! I didn’t have any trouble downloading my GBA games from Brothersoft because of this technique….I keep on capturing & saving in Paint, that when I move to the Downloads box, some of them are already done! I managed 5 races in one day, some containing 4 downloads & some containing 6. All in all, I downloaded………..43 games! Holy cow! I never imagined I downloaded 43…I just thought it was 20….and more! :O

So you see, downloading can be a lot easier IF you think of a way to make it funner! ;)
