Smile [MIMMS] Is mimms able to "resume" like most of downloaders in Windows ?


I searched for a mms downloader last night and I found various programs to do the job, like mplayer (the one I found it's hard to compile), or mencoder (just to change file format), but I'd like to use mimms for my simple task, just recording the stream. But I wonder if the program has "resume" ability or not, 'cause I often downloads movies which may take a long time at night (2 or 3 hours). So the "resume" ability must be very useful if my parents complain about my habit of staying up late.

Does mimms have the ability of "remembering" what it's downloading ? (Hope it does , then please show me how to do it.)
Thank you, guys.
