^ That link is down because we spent a lot of bandwidth of our site, so it had to be pulled out.
Thanks for the info. Looking all over the web for this module last week drove me nuts.
I believe the Reader module would be among the most valuable and sought after, hence probably the bandwidth demand. I am looking to see if I can host it. What would be its size, and was the bandwidth draw ghastly; (will my ISP boot me, too?)
In the meantime, what about a possible solutions like a free public file hosting service with unlimited download bandwidth and potentially unlimited time, such as http://www.zonderfiles.com
? I have not actually checked out this particular one, but have used files-upload.com, and have liked that well. Although not as elegant as a private server, could this work?
Also, if filehippo and majorgeeks, etc., host regular full and update releases, would they consider hosting stand-alone modules, as well? Perhaps some of the mirrors, maybe? They might make good torrents, [though I am amazed at how few seed]
I would guess Reader would be hot, but the others would be useful to many, also. Maybe you do not need to put this on your private box, and in so doing, it might again be available to the evidently wide population with demand.
I am going to check out the zonderfile thing as it looks like that might be useful for other things, too, but maybe it will help here as an alternative approach.
I know I do not have many posts. I am grateful for the creation and hosting of the modules and for the many contributions that make all of AutoPatcher possible and so useful to us all. Thanks for that and for your consideration of this idea.
