A year and a quarter later: still no download resuming

Postby Ne-X-us » Wed Aug 25, 2004 2:12 pm

Well I can't download 6.3 from the Qnx website because my isp imposes a 2 hour cut off and I can't download 500MB in 2 hours! I wonder how much bandwidth has been wasted by people redownloading the same data in the year+ since qnx disabled resuming on their download? Must be 100s of Gigs. Seems a strange way to save money if thats what they're trying to do?!

Anyway, anyone know of any mirrors / bittorrents where I can actually download this?

Thanks

You don't have to be a genius to conclude whether this is a bandwidth saving or waste. This makes me believe QSS has other reason for the crappy download manager... I bet QSS won't be happy to see a 3rd party download mirror / bittorrents due to this "other reason". I will be more than happy to be proved wrong, in which case, I will setup a mirror. Say something, QSS.

I can think of one way this is a bandwidth saver to them: It'll massively reduce the number of less-than-determined people and also many of those same people will be enthusiastic users of "download accelerators".

Well I emailed their webmaster about this and he said they use the download manager because they have some files which are available to licensees only so they don't want to offer files in the clear (ie. linkable). They also want to limit the number of concurrent downloads. Why they can't do this and still support resume I don't know. Probably because they can't be bothered to modify their php download manager to support it. So noc I don't see any reason why you shouldn't set up a mirror and I will be your 1st happy downloader :)

The problem is not the download (at least with 6.3). You can't install unless you have a license, which QSS will mail you AFTER you finish the download. We could make the image available, but you couldn't use it.

Now if we could convince QSS to basically issue licenses before the download, or perhaps without the download, then mirrors and torrents would follow.

Did he say if it is ok for people outside QSS to setup/provide QNX 6.3 downloads?

I didn't ask him but he didn't give any reason for not setting up a mirror. Except that as rick says you need their license which means the 6.3 download that I've got 85% of from a mirror probably won't even work :x

That's a complete untouched copy of an auto-emailed license.

Note: The Serial Number is not a valid one because it predates the new registration method.
