Sorry to hear the bad news guys. You are awesome, we all appreciate your efforts greatly.

i'm waiting to see what the outcome with DVQ/atomicfire is with their boxes before I decide if I want to continue.

at this point use torrents/usenet.

If I knew a single box could handle it i'd say set up a fund to get a single dreamhost account ($120/year) for the sole purpose of topgear. Or we could say donors only?

I'd throw in 5-10 bucks.

And I don't think it should be donors only, gotta give love to the [M].

I'd give $5 without thought for Top Gear.

Although there would be a bunch of people downloading from that single host if there were a lot of donors which I'd suspect.

basic math time!

assuming the dreamhost box is on a 100mbit pipe, and each person has a 5mbit internet pipe (yes some have faster and some have slower) than means a theoretical 20 people can hit one box at once (excluding overhead) without affecting bandwidth of other users. That 20 is the number we would need at $5 each.
We could do a thing like slashdot, donators get first grab (maybe like 20 min ahead) then it gets posted to the forums for rapeage

I'd be more than willing, but would Dreamhost allow it even if it was a dedicated box?

Ok guys <3 to you all for hosting for so long, thanks so much. Seriously, thanks alot.

Hope you guys get your files back.

I have a friend who works at a local ISP here in canada, i may talk to him to see how much it would cost us to get a box there that could host.

edit: how much bandwidth do you hosters go thru every week on average?

Wouldn't this all be much easier if genmay just used a torrent? There would be much more bandwidth to go around on initial release, I know my internet connection can burst up to 3.5mbps of upload and maintain 2.5mbps upload with no problem.


edit: Private torrent of course.

not everyone can use a torrent (uni connections, etc) and some people just can't figure it out

either way, something has to be done, i'm curious to see if dropbox will pull it once I post it

Do many people run into problems with torrents on uni connections? I've never had an issue and never heard anyone I know have an issue.


Private torrent may be the way to go.
