Great improvement on large files. Got them all through.

Re the ~PROFILE command:

1. Works great and operate immediately. It can replace the ~MODE
command quite effectively.

2. It seems that the high speed anf backoff speed are in the opposite
order of the client display: low first then high second. E,.g.
~PROFILE PSK250R PSK500R seem to be the way the server understands it.
Not major but a bit confusing if I am correct.

Best regards,
