Argh - please limit the number of simultaneous 
connections, because this means that the server was 
overloaded by too many requests. For large mirrors or 
large image download, use 1 or 2 connection at time, 
this will limit the risks of overload. You can also 
limit the bandwidth, if you have a huge connection (T2 
and above - 50KB+)

Well, this might be an idea - among with various other 
things, like a "bookmark like" top index.html (with 
folders, and so on..)
But this won't be planned immediately, as I have to 
find some bugs (still can ot detect the bug someones 
have, with crashes)
