Link issue explained

Okay, I feel like I have been beating my head against a brick wall all morning trying to figure out what was going on with one silly little link for the Gingerbread Christmas blog train and why it wasn't downloading correctly.  I thought maybe it had something to do with my bandwidth again and that it may have corrupted the file or something, so I reuploaded it and got a new link.  Then,  I got 2 more emails telling me that the links were invalid.  So, I went in and deleted the old file from mediafire, deleted it from my computer, re-created it and uploaded again, getting another new link.  I got 2 more emails.  Okay, this time I left the old link, created another new zip and tried uploading it, but it kept dying on me.  Grrrrr!!!!

So, I used 3 different computers and tested the link, downloading the file to all 3 computers and unzipping it.  It worked.  Okay, what is going on here?  It's working, right?   But, I got another email saying it wasn't working.  So, I went to check the file again and guess what.....

The issue isn't with me or my computer,  it's mediafire.  They are updating and completely re-doing their website today.  So, all I can suggest is patience and keep trying.  It will work eventually.  It would have been nice if Mediafire had let us know that they were going to be working on the website and may be causing malfunctions like this.

And, just to make sure, here is another link for the Gingerbread Christmas Blog Train Full size kit.

I hope this explanation helps.  Talk to you soon.  Hugs.

I would really like to get your part for this blog train because it is one of the cutest. However the link is not working. I saw your explanation, but other mediafire links I have tried are currently working. I saw the comment the the scrapbook max version works - what is the difference? Thank you.
