Works for me. Maybe you need to use a different browser to do the download.
BTW, I expect the tarball is generated with GNU tar; perhaps your vendor
tar doesn't grok it? Oh, and it's gzipped too; some versions of Netscape
will strip the .gz suffix without decompressing the file. Use GNU tar with
the 'z' option or rename it 'validator.tar.gz' and use 'gzip -d' or
'gunzip' on it first.
