Was thinking about the mirroring topic.

The biggest concern on Andrews part is the mirror
downloading loads of times ina single day.

What if we had a chain effect.

Say a script gets it automaticly once a day from but
we do it in a way so Andrew releses his version then
mirror one get s it from him, mirror 3 gets it from
mirror 2 and mirror 4 gets it from mirror 3.

So then not one server it taking the load within hour
or so of release all the servers would have it.

or could even write into a download script update
checking so a file on a andrews site has the latest
version and then out scripts check that and only
update it when new versioncomes out. it gets it.

better then downloading the data every two hours etc
it just updates local version when new comes out.
