Is a variable delay possible?

I am slowly downloading a site that frowns on automated tools and has a daily limit. I use the delay to keep the activity slow and was wondering if it is possible to have the delay variable?

Also - is it possible to set a MB limit? Such as: run this download but stop after 200MB have been received?

Thanks

Hello,
As far as the delay is concerned, I know you can set a range for the delay ( input like this: 4-6 )and then each thread will randomly count down from a number in the range before beginning.

Also, under the properties tab for the project, if you click on Advanced, you can set limits for size.

Hope this helps!
