I use Ubuntu One Dale; they have a pretty cool free option which I use to host my AOPs now. Though I installed the Ubuntu One software on my Win7 system, I don't use it to upload my files; I just use the web interface (my XP VM). :)

Thanks, Lyle.
You mentioned that before and I took a quick look at it but did not investigate it any further.
Hosting AOPs on Comcast should not be a problem but some of the AOPs I make are larger than 8 MB total. I guess I should check out your host service.
All photos I use are my photos unless otherwise noted in the post.

Try this and see if it works:

http://home.comcast.net/~netgrafx/Crafted-v3.dpk

Comcast has an 8 mb limit so some of my AOPs will not fit. This might just be a temporary solution.

I had to figure out how Comcast lets me make a web page. Unfortunately they make it more complicated than it needs to be.
Thank you, worked perfectly, just click and save. Look forward to trying it out.

Kai's templates from the MediaFire links in this post?

There is sometimes a confusion between the MIME type the web server sends (not all use the "application/octet-stream" default for unknown extensions), and the default application which is registered to this MIME type in your browser (might be WinRAR in your specific case, because RAR archives are often unknown to webservers), so the browser might rename the file extension. Usually it should be sufficient to rename the downloaded file back to "*.dpk". Furthermore, some browsers can be configured if they shall trust rather the file extension or the MIME type.

Sorry, can't help. They all downloaded as .dpk for me.
What browser are you using?

You must have winrar in your computer.
Right click on the rar file -> Extract here, you will get A2.dpk.

They are all dpk files except the brush 62 - that's a rar file.

As an aside, does anyone know if they are versions (60.. 62..63), or are they separate files, distinct and different?

Ah, I only checked out a few of them. Just goes to show I should not comment until I have completed any necessary research.
Then again, I have winrar and have for a decade or so. It never is a problem for me.

:oops: Well, I did not check all the links. Sometimes a RAR archive is indeed a RAR archive... :P

There are several other archivers able to decompress RAR archives (among several). Even free software. And more efficient compressors. Like 7-zip.

WinRAR is a commercial archiver with a 40 day testing period. But it also provides free UnRAR extractors.
