Thanks for hosting! Filling out my collection now, greatly appreciate it. Going to put more files on my site as well to help the cause.

Hard drives are really getting cheap, I bought 2, 1 tb USB external drives for $59 a pop. So for around $120 will be able to have enough space for the entire dataset. Yay.

Is this download site reliable? How can I make sure I have the correct files? If the md5 sum is correct how sure can I be then?

md5 uses 128 bits, so if nothing has been manipulated the chance that a wrong file gets the same md5 sum is 1/2^128

The site seems very reliable, I just finished the entire 3+3 and 4+2 sets ~(200gigs) and not a single file was corrupt.
The md5sum's checked perfectly.

This sounds great. I tested a few files. They work very well so far.
