wxDownload Fast reached 100000 downloads (April 30 2007)

I'm happy to announce that the "wxDownload Fast" project reached 100000 downloads since his first release. I know that some projects get this numbers in a few days. But for a small project managed by a single guy (me), that work in the project just a few hours a month this is a big deal.

But It's important to say that this number is possible thanks the several users around the world, that use the program and help me to improve it every day with your suggestions and bug reports. And of course, I give a special thank to all the translators that make the program reach all this countries, to Erno Szabados for the great RipStop theme and to Anthony Brian for his tips.

Thank you all!!!!
