Jigsaw Download for Debian

I don't like shuffling CDs.
There are 2 ways to get a DVD of Debian.
One is to pay $25 + shipping (CDs cost $5+Ship).
The other is to download a couple of files (a dvd template and a list of files/checksums) and then with that, I use "JigDo" to download from a bunch of sites at the same time, and then jigdo will build a dvd image for me to burn.

Those two files are on a shitty assed server in hungary. Packet Delay is only 190ms, which is less than a modem connection across town; however, it's a huge mirror server, on a small box, and so me trying to get these two tiny files is listed as taking 4 hours. Unfortunately, connection drops after about 5 mins. I kept restarting and finally I retried this morning and it's refresh day, so I had to start over.
