Dunno, Dude!

It works fine for me. Either double-click => Save as (in a browser) or "wget" (with the *exact* URL you specified).

"404" means "not found". Maybe you mis-typed something?

Looks like it could be a hostname resolution problem. For you h.yming.com is resolving as 209.84.7.126, for me it is 208.73.210.27.
Can you confirm the IP address that your windows box is using for h.yming.com?
