Half-way through a 4GB download I accidentally rebooted the system. Upon loading back up, I had the sheer horror of realising I cancelled the bloody download because of it. I've booted my Ubuntu VM and trying to WGET the rest of the file. According to this blog post it is relatively easy.

I've exported my proxy server address to the http_proxy environment variable and I can successfully view webpages in FireFox. It's just unfortunate that I now receive the error:

Resolving Connecting to||:80... connected. Proxy request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found 2012-01-19 04:53:28 ERROR 404: Not Found.


wget --continue

I assumed it was a timeout issue so extended it to 60 seconds however this only resulted in a .txt file with the same error message on my desktop. I'm out of any options I can think of.
