I had the Mist client installed, but it hadn't been updated in a few weeks so I tried renaming the chaindata folder and downloading the blockchain wit geth --fast as that is supposedly faster. I started the download about three days ago, on a capped internet connection that is very slow, and now I still only have 188 MB of data in the chaindata folder. Is there another, faster way to download the blockchain? Should I just restore the Mist chaindata folder and try syncing via the Mist Client?

I want to get my hands on some DAO and it is very frustrating to see the price go up without me being able to send some ETH to get DAO...
