I got exactly the same thing....with exactly the same number. My first guess was that was the number of bytes, but 2 gigs seems way too big.

I was using Windows XP on a pretty new computer. :)

No no no! Check your "Three Rings Folder", you've just hacked your way into downloading "Lizthegrey"...who is infact an AI system developed by OOO to monitor and control all activities on their servers.

Lando and the others were hired to develope/maintain "LtG", which is why "Liz" most often offers solutions for troubleshooting or answers to technical questions while the others (like with the Lag-ocolypes) tend to handle the physical labor in our flesh/blood world.

2 gigs sounds about right...now, remember...with great power comes great responsability...

Do it for Uncle Ben

Ah, that explains it then. You see, those are Windows Percents, not your run-of-the-mill everyday percents! They're the newest thing to come out of the research program that already gave us the Microsoft Minute.

You didn't break maths, just download the client 21,474,836.47 times.

[serious]
2,147,483,647 = (2^31) - 1. Is this important? It appears to be the largest possible signed 32-bit integer (int? long? I don't know much programming)

So it appears you broke Java, not math(s).
