Alternate way to get the craftbukkit 1.8.3 download?

  1. Hey, I am trying to setup a craftbukkit mc environment on my home PC to test and configure plugins for the new 1.8.3, but when I try to run the git bash tool to download it via:

    java -jar BuildTools.jar --rev 1.8.3

    of any variant of the above, even down to rev 1.8, it keeps spitting an error back at me for connection reset, which is probably due to my crappy internet service. Is there a way to download a pre-compiled, ready to use version of craftbukkit and spigot for mc 1.8+ without having to run buildtools, or am I stuck without being able to setup a server? I am waiting to purchase a server until AFTER I have setup the plugins I am going to run, to minimize downtime before I can open to public.
  2. Its not allowed but i compile every week an new jar because sometimes it has been updated

    Hit me up at skype and i can help you with it :)
