File Transfer Service over HTTP

I've been tried in vain for dozens of times to fetch an 100kB gz file thousands miles away using a common Web-browser. 

The point is that under HTTP, it has always to retransmit from the beginning, not at the 'breakpoint' like Linux 'reget' does, which reflects the difference between HTTP and FTP. 

Can anybody save me? Or, I've to wait another weekend.
