There's your problem. Not enough heap space. You need to wire in about 492
more Megs to increase your heap to handle a 500MB file. :-)

Seriously, assuming you meant 500k, I have never had a problem with Package
Buddy for Macintosh, and an Ethernet connection. If you want to send the
html source to me, I'll make it for you and send you the package.
