Download mirrors available?

Post by hornakapopolis » Fri Dec 19, 2014 3:09 pm

Are there any download mirrors available on immediate releases? Downloading these install files has become painful for quite some time now. I'm averaging 15-25KB/s.

It shouldn't take 30 minutes to download Avant's installer. What's going on?

I thought someone else brought this up at some point, but I can't find the thread. This isn't a "time of day" thing. It's consistently that slow regardless of when the downloads are attempted.

both the Avant Archives, and my other archives ;o) (I am usually able to grab them and put them on the archives within an hour or so of release, depending on whether or not I am asleep when they are released)

Cool. Thanks, man. I did think of your archives, but wasn't sure how quickly you were able to get ahold of the copies. I remembered in the past there would be times where you'd pop on and and say, "Hey, did anyone get this build? I didn't get it before the new one was released."

And I'd say, "Yeah, I got it. I've attached it to this post."

Then you'd say, "Man, that is really cool of you. You are, like, one of the coolest people I've ever known. ...probably one of the coolest in the world. I wish everyone alive was just .000000001% as cool as you because this world would be a much better place to live in. What a completely awesome dude!"

I went looking for that thread, but couldn't find. Must have been accidentally deleted. I might not have gotten that verbatim, though. You might have just said, "Thanks."

hehe no worries.

Yep, sometimes miss one (or take longer to get it to the archives) if I'm asleep when released :(
