      Re: Stop Press - New FW - Stop Press

      Its not that hard to stick a file onto a server and just link the bleedin thing.
      lol - When the link gets published, there's a fair chance it is going to get hammered.

      If we get the image, we have three or four locations where we can host it, but if just a link, then it is Sky's servers that are going to get battered.

      That would be funny - as long as I downloaded it before the server falls over and dies, toherwise I'd be complaining like everyone else!

      Allowing a few thousand people to download a 4MB firmware image over the course of a few hours doesn't sound like a particularly heavy load for any server, really.
