Thanks to everyone who tried to help.  Someone wrote me off list with some
instructions that helped me find the magazine issue and it is now on my
Stream.  Part of my problem may have been that I'd forgotten that the file
name begins with DB.

I'll spend some time tomorrow when I'm fresher and see if I can coax IE 8 to
let me download BARD titles somewhere that seems more logical to me.

I looked there and can't find it.  Since I downloaded it, things seem to be
downloaded to the desktop and it isn't there.  Does Win 7 have some way of
searching for files using *.zip the way XP Home does?

Did you look in your owner's downloads folder. There is supposed to be a 
way to download it to where you want it to go, but once I found out 
where it goes by default I just let it go there. Then I navigate to that 
folder and just move it to the folder I want it in.
