How to download movies from ifilm and the like without streaming them (because I have a 56k modem, uh, and no windows media player)

1) Find a movie at ifilm
2) Choose the high quality asf version
3) Login as cypherpunks/cypherpunks
4) Netscape loads a file that points to the movie. Since netscape can't parse it, save to disk.
5) Read the file. It should have a URL in it in the format http://nnn.akastream.net/n/nnnn/nnnn/nnnnnnnn/ifilm.download.akamai.com/nnnn/wm/nnnnnn_nnn.asf; junk everything before ifilm.download.akamai.com; the rest is what you download.

Suckers!

It's Lego Chef time!
