Crazy FlashGet!

If you've been using the new FlashGet 1.8, you might have noticed an odd quirk in the system. crazy-flashget.jpg

Yep, it appears to be running more connections than it should. 60/5. Is this some pseudo thing or for real? I think it's for real, because I know roughly how many connections it takes to sustain that speed, considering our now less-than-optimal Internet here in Malaysia.

As for the really nice graph I like to watch as Flashget grabs my files: crazy-flashget-ants.jpg

(Yes, I tend to call them ants. Why? Probably some old thing about NetAnts, which used to call these individual connections ants.)
