Genome researchers with limited bandwidth can save a few minutes downloading the HG18 dataset by visiting my compressed HGP directory. You need the tools for at least one of the two competing 2bit file formats. Mine is here, I haven't yet found complete sources for the other.

Tektonic gives me "unmetered" bandwidth, so download away. These compressed files are over 100MB smaller than the complete datasets available from UCSC.
