Those two at least consistently return `403 Forbidden'. There seems to be spurious (and recent) problems with the server. The permissions are OK, but I have encountered too random problems (killing the download and restarting always solved it). I don't host the server (it is an ISP) and I will have to try to find what has been going wrong recently (maybe the CDN that I selected at one moment; then disabled because there were problems; and since I renewed the lending, perhaps it has been reset back). Thanks for the report and the encouragement! Best, T.
