Linux "Today I pushed out a new ISO of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named for my favorite celebrity. For this new Wayland CD, I wrote a new login manager with Bash and Zenity and Expect (and Script) that fully runs on a Wayland server (weston). Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

""Download managers?"

I know Firefox can resume a download.

As far as I remember, this has never worked with failed downloads: you can only start over from the very beginning, even if the server does support resume.

Firefox' DownThemAll extension does it right, though.

Weird I have accidentally closed Firefox while downloading and it just resumes when I start it again. It does not redownload.

That's not really failure though, because Firefox stays in control of what happens all the time, unless you have brutally killed it or something similar.

What I call failure is those situations where the network connection itself is quite unreliable (think being far away from a WiFi hotspot or using a cell connection). In my experience, in this situation, Firefox will advertise the download as being either failed or (worse) completed even if it isn't.
