Or for those who have ftp :)   Hunter Goatley's fileserver is mirrored in the 
[.macro32.savesets] directory at ftp.spc.edu - loads of cool stuff here.

Since Hunter's connection to the net is through a 9600 baud line it's better,
if you can, to use the ftp option.

Zip also has great compression ratios and replaces Zoo on that count also.
