[Interest] qt5 shapshot - not git or guitorious

Thanks for the offer and the help everyone.

After some hacking I discovered that HTTPS was more reliable. I even had to set up NTLMaps (NTML proxy) in addition to configuring the proxy however even with tweaking that (max cons = 50)I was still not able to pull back qtbase and the other large modules, but the smaller modules worked fine (qlalr)

Eventually I "fixed" the problem by going to Starbucks and not using the company LAN. To me, this is a failure of git/gitorious, and just another reason why git sucks. The web works here at work, I don't know why git has to think it's so special. (I'm not commenting on the other features of git, just the network protocol(s)) I should not have to jump through such hoops in 2012. Adding insult to injury, my coffee was over priced and they used soy milk instead of regular milk.

Anyway, I should be good now, since the updates should be less sizable.

Thanks again for your help and your offers :-)

I am looking for a snapshot of Qt5 but not from git or guitorius do to the fact that git does not work....
So where can I get a source snapshot, old school style?
Jason: If you can wait for snail-mail, I can burn a CD (or DVD, if the total size requires one). If that sounds good, reply with your mailing address privately-- and be sure to put the word cuty-five-point-something (wink) in your title. This is a "live" email address, but my spam filters are pretty tough.
