I really don't see the problem here

Everyone is free to not download ADA because of no updates

I already know that someone taken this decision

People are free to do that, obviously

If someone want an archive with updates, he can download TOSEC stuff, for example

I already told this, ADA will not be released with updates, i simply don't like this kind of solution

I am sorry i can't help much more on this

Using other words, ADA is my own collection and i am free to do it as i want

I will give it a weekly look.
No need for me to update it daily.

I have less than 50 posts so am anonymous on the ftp so it takes me days to download. I finally completed it today but it's corrupt and won't unzip.


The file size matches what's on the server, I think the corruption might be because updates can happen to that one large file while it's being downloaded, and when the ftp client tries to resume you end up with a broken zip file.


I think I just have to make 50 posts to get proper access.

Hi again mrprawns

The file is not corrupt, i personally test it each time i make the upload

As you already pointed out, you must have 50 posts to get an upload account

With that you can download the collection at the maximum speed

Hope this can help

That won't make a notable difference by the end of the year when quite a few new updates have been done by chip

What about those, who have not such fast connection?
They still have to download the whole big archive only because of a few added files, so they have a waste of time then.
You try talking to trees, i think. Thats less time consuming..

mai / jarre; you've said it enough times now...

Whilst I agree that updates are always the best way i.e. saves bandwidth / people's time / easy to track changes etc.

...chip isn't going to do this; maybe he doesn't know how or finds it too difficult for some reason, I don't know.

At the end of the day it's his project and he can distribute it how he likes.

You as the end user can then either decide if you will / will not download, due to his decisions.

Yep, the archive which become bigger each day is something that gives me satisfaction

Anyway, more than the final result, it's funny to see the various files which i use to build ADA

In other words, just insert a disk into WinUAE and see what happens !
