Reason I ask is that I am downloading the latest version of html editor (Nice one guys) and I am getting one of the worst download speeds I have had in years.
If it was via torrent at least you would find that others would share their downloads and would remove some of the load of your servers and people would benefit from a faster download speed.
Just my 2 cents worth. Oh and I am willing to volunteer to host the software for a month or two after I had downloaded it, if it were available, on a computer available 24/7 to help others out
Just for the record, my download speeds are usually around 600 to 700 kb/sec and today's download for the HTML Editor was 70 - 150 kb/sec fluctuating like crazy (which affirms how busy the server probably is with downloaders).
I personally don't think a Torrent type system is needed here, but that's just my opinion which doesn't hold Torrent type systems in very high regard due to all the hackers using it.
Downloads through our Website should be extremely fast as we have a very large pipe and plenty of bandwidth
I am currently getting 25kB/s download and there is no other download going on. I regularly expect downloads of 600-700kB/s.
I do realise that it is probably mostly down to the time of release but it is a bit frustrating as I just want to play with the new software and I am stuck waiting :-(
I can confirm that torrents will probably never happen as an official distribution channel for our software. We might employ a CDN in the future though.
Thanks for the deal on HTML Editor themes I didn't have any of those in my collection till now. Sometimes it pays to wait.
