Download scripts

Hi folks,

VCC is currently getting in the order of 4000 downloads per week. While I would love to believe that that translated into 4000 new people happily verifying programs each week (or even 4000 the same people getting the latest and greatest VCC each week, of 600 daily for that matter), I rather think that there a people running automated download scripts that are running a bit wild.

So, if you are running such a script to always get the latest and greatest VCC as soon as it is released, maybe check that your script is not on a rampage.

Thanks!

Incidentally (just being reminded of this as having done a manual download myself today) if somehas a nice automated download script somewhere, I would be interested in (responsibly[*]) reusing it (and I think it might be useful for others too).

[*] that is, triggering it only when really needed - i mean one also doesn't want waste owns *own* bandwidth either :-)
