    its too easy to cheat on those thingers :)

    basically you dl a large file by clicking on it... say an mpeg... and it will dl and play...

    after that right click and SAVE that same file... since it is already cached... BOOM... you get super duper speeds of dl... :) supposedly... even though this is not the case...

    You can cheat very easily without anyone noticing it. It's like the MPEG caching. You click a file (say 30 MB) and the box pops up asking where to save it. Just ignore it and take a shower, or drink a cup of coffee or whatever. In the meantime IE is downloading it and saving it in a temp-folder and as soon as you pick a location to save it, IE downloads whatever that's left, and then copies it from the temp folder to the actual destination folder.
    I do notice that IE doesn't cache the entire file, but only the first megabyte or two of it. But you can still use this trick to show off to your friends.
