Yes, thanks, that worked well.
One thing I noticed and is a bit confusing is that the dataset page  indicates:
Last Modified 16 November 2017
whereas the rs.gbif.org site  indicates "newer" files (based on timestamps, directory names) created in 2018.
The backbone-current.zip from the dataset page and from the rs.gibf.org site appear to be identical (same byte count and md5sum), but I could not determine this without actually downloading both.

you can find all backbone data here, it should not be a terribly long download:

I attempted to download the archive using a command-line tool but cannot because:
I started the download from my browser and the expected download time keeps bouncing between 8 hours and 12 hours.
1. Is there a location on the Internet where I can download that file in a reasonable timeframe?
Is there any interest in developing mirrors or a CDN to host some of these things within the community?
