gecko2@ just called me. He operates www.mirbsd.org and got a little surprise on his daily traffic report. Summing it up, his server and myself, and a friend of mine, together, adding HTTP and BitTorrent transfers, have had about 500 GiB traffic in the 3½ days the #10 release is now available. Alone the HTTP direct downloads of clients that got the ISO in one piece (not HTTP 206) number sits at 861 at the time of this writing (850 five minutes ago, 825 ¼h ago).

As an immediate measure protecting his server against being taken offline for traffic limit trespassing, I redirected to allbsd.org for direct downloads on getting.htm and suggested him to install bandwidth throttling/limiting for apache. Don’t be surprised.

Update: half an hour later, it’s at 867, so I think the change of the direct link helped. Sorry for the inconvenience at both gecko2 and our downloaders — but then, to the latter group: You should’ve used BitTorrent anyway.

Oops. Changed the wrong link. 923 downloads… 927…
