Thanks to a huge amount of help from bill crim, there are two more podcast gobs included here.  

They should be fully accessible by folks that already own this.   Can one of you download them and tell me if everything opens and plays okay?

Scrolling down to "click here to download" allowed downloading these without a problem.  However the usual "extract" option in the pop up menu does not appear.  If the OS matters, this is on Linux Mint Mate 18.3 Sylvia.

As it turns out, I am also using linux mint 18.3 and both files open for me.  Of course, I downloaded them from the source ...     downloading from permies now ...

I downloaded a second copy of 401-440 and it opens fine for me.  ??

Anybody else having trouble with these zip files?

The "extract here" option still does not appear for the two zip files as noted above.  I tried opening a different zip and the "extract here" option shows.  Is it maybe a permissions thing 'cause you be the boss?

Clarification:  I deleted the first two downloads.  Then downloaded a second time.  The second try downloads just fine, though I still cannot extract either.

Attached is a screenshot of what I see.

First, I am supper happy that a fellow missoulian not only uses mint, but is on the exact same version as I am.   Next, when getting screen shots, I tend to press alt-printScreen - and linux takes a pic of the current window.  

I guess my test is that I simply double click on the zip file.   It shows me the list of what is in it.  My impression is that it is not doing that for you.  I guess mine is set up that double click means "open with archive manager".  

When I right click on the zip file, the first option is "open with archive manager".  In yours it says "open".   (dramatic music goes here)

I confess that I don't fiddle with mint much.  I spend 99% of my time in browsers.  Is it possible that you are using a different zip tool than I am?

Cool!  Thanks for the screenshot tip :.)  Also guilty of being more in browsers ^.^

I noticed something unusual after expanding the columns.  The file name extensions show .zip on a text file and the actual zip file shows zip.part.

Yeah, all four of those files look like they won't work at all.   It looks like the download did not complete.

Still a partial download issue?

Today's download looks like those above.

Retried opening other zip files which worked.

Nope.  No issues with other zip files so far.  Just extracted BIAD without a problem.

Let's focus just on 401-440.  Keep in mind that I was able to download the full file and open it.  

First, delete the 401-440 stuff that you have already.  And then try again.

The download is almost instant.  Not even 2 seconds.

I'm downloading it again with my so-so internet connection.  Already past 120 megs and still going strong.

I have now added the 17 podcast review of Gaia's Garden.   Can those that own this download that and make sure it looks okay?

I have bought this a while a go and downloaded a new gob 361-400 to test it. I listened to some of it  so can confirm it works on android using firefox.
