Thanks so much. An anonymous benefactor hosted the coolstuff file for me late last night. He's probably taken it down by now. It was a 76mb 7zip file that unzipped to:
396 MB (416,132,697 bytes) file size
479 MB (502,321,152 bytes) size on disc
36,395 files 2,249 folders
I think it took at least 4 hours on my slow connection. I don't know if it's compatible; we'll see.
Sorry, I was so slow that your response was already here when I came back to amend my post. I hope you didn't go to any trouble. Thanks.
A few sections were giving me some errors building with my current configuration. While trying to resolve them manually, I found the sources for Red Ribbon RC4 and used those instead. No errors and only 2 warnings.
Thanks for all your help, guys, really appreciate it.
