I am sorry to tell you this will not be allowed.

The prinston company deliberately abused a download area aimed
only for software developers in our user group who are making 
programs with our own software package.  They put huge files 
there without telling us and thousands of people started downloading 
them, which would have cost us thousands of dollars per month
in bandwidth fees.  So, we stopped this and deleted all the files.  

If you have a contact in this company, let me know, so we can 
tell them how angry we are!  In the meantime prinston will have to
set up and pay for their own download facilities somewhere else.

I am sorry if you are inconvenienced by this but they have
behaved very badly both towards us and their own customers.

Best Regards,
