MetaLink — another time/space-saving idea
« on: August 28, 2006, 06:01:00 PM »
If you're not using MetaLink to download your software (if you're a dev), then maybe it's time. What an overdue idea. Torrentfreak has the best explanation:

We’ve all seen those download pages where a couple of http, ftp and bittorrent mirrors are listed. We often just pick one of there, but wouldn’t it be great if you could use them all at the same time?... Metalinker has the solution. It works like this, the .metalink file tells your download manager where it can get the file, and connects to these different sources at the same time.
