|i dont know what to do with the .7z file that the download gives me can someone help?|
|You'll need to download 7zip to extract the file.|
edit: HTML fail.
|The best part of the 7z format is how you save a few bytes of bandwidth, only to lose it all back again each time someone asks what they're supposed to do with the file. : P|
Really, I don't see much need to distribute an archive in anything but zip format, unless it's large enough to make a significant difference in filesize. Practically every multi-format compression utility can open zip files, and it's natively supported by all common operating systems. While 7zip might be a decent program, most people would rather not install a new piece of software just to open a file.
|I seem to have a different problem with it than you. Their site is down.|
