    remote file split, download, join locally


    Hi ppls.

    I only have dialup internet at home.
    I use Windows 7 64-bit at home.

    I have a Kindle 3 wifi + 3g which can download .TXT, .AZW, .PRC or .MOBI files up to 15 MB or so.

    My website is on a linux server.

    So, I wanna download something that's under 15 MB...

    I just did this successfully:

    I wget it to my website using puTTy...
    Rename it to .TXT...
    Download it to the Kindle (using 3g)...
    Transfer it to my PC...
    Rename it to original filename.

    So, what about files that are too big for the Kindle to download ?

    Can I split the remote file into 14 MB or so pieces...
    Rename the pieces to .TXT...
    Download the pieces with Kindle...
    Transfer pieces to Windows 7...
    Join 'em up to make the original file ?!?!?

    I was messing around with SPLIT and CAT in puTTy, but I don't know what I'm doing.

    I have a wifi device I can use when I'm in town, but this would be more fun.

    Thanks!

    Hello and Welcome.
    I know you can use file splitter for Windows.

    I didn't really want to post that link since it's only for MS users but you said you have it installed and I thought you might find it useful. I haven't used it in such a long time that I almost forgot it existed. Glad you got use of it.
