ANXIETY=(DOWNLOAD REMAINING)/(TIME REMAINING).

Symptoms of download anxiety include: Uncontrollable monitoring of the download; Refraining from doing anything else on the computer for fear of interrupting the download; Inability to concentrate on anything not related to downloading; and other more general anxiety symptoms.
