hi;
Here is how it goes, a user signs into
www.rfbd.org
and searchs for a book. They find it, and downloads a book that comes in a .rfbd file. This file is typically about 900kb. The user then uses this tool to open that .rfbd file, witch then connects to the rfbd server and downloads files to the downloads folder, in the .wma format. If you've ever used a .torent file, you would might understand a bit more. the .torent file downloads files and is a bit small. However .rfbd files are different then .torent files because .rfbd files only connect to one server and download directly from the rfbd server whilst .torent files connect to a tracker and download files from a lot of different people's computers. I do hope this helps, rfbd is just trying to protect there books more and more.

Mine asks me to please select my file. I have no idea where to get these files, but I assume that it works on the same concept as Torrents to a certain extent, in that it seemingly downloads books associated with chosen RFBD file in the background..

so the interface is supposed to look like a file browser? from its description, it should ask a question that it never seems to ask at least initially and it is supposed to put the results of the answer into the downloads folder. well, it does open my home folder but it does it prior to the question.

Seems like that's exactly what it does. According to the description, anyway.

And for some odd reason, I'm unable to read anything with the arrow keys if I'd want to select something from that site only. Not sure why.

Anyway, yeah, it asks you for .RFBD files and you download them into a directory. That's the short and sweet version.

I still do ot understand this application. from what I read, it seems to be supposed to download a file. from what I experience, it seems to want you to find a file that you have already downloaded.

I have made a few interface improvements in the RFB&D Downloader application and have posted it at the project site: http://www.cucat.org/projects/rfbd/index.php

I have added a notice when the process finished and it will also bounce the icon in the Dock as well. I had to remove for now the background downloading as it was creating interface issue that I will have to deal with in a future version.

I have moved some support file to where they should have been in the program's file structure.
