Please fix download problem

I am not a contestant this time, but really enjoy viewing all the entries.
One request for the next Challenge. If you move the hand icon off the entry, the bar at the bottom of the screen says "done", and the download stops. This means that the viewer has to sit and wait, doing nothing else on the computer, letting the icon hover over the link, until the download finishes. There are a lot of entries. Downloading them all means a lot of time just sitting and waiting. There has to be a way to let the download proceed while one is doing another task. Other sites can do it.

to add to what mat says, if you're a mac user, try ctrl-clicking.

by either right-clicking or ctrl-clicking, you should have no problems downloading in the background while doing other tasks. usually, what i do is ctrl-click them all, and let them load overnight, and voila the next morning, i can watch them. hard disk space permitting, of course....

glad you're watching, feel free to submit again!
