Thanks a bunch. I've started the torrent though it took me a little while to
find, the page to download it is, IMO, somewhat counterintuitive.
Instead of downloading by clicking on the version you want you have to click
on the torrent from a list of files at the bottom, which are written in very
small text (7 or 8 pixels). Oh well, I was still able to find it. Thanks for
your response, less than 10 mins =D
I look forward to the penguin! ^_^
