The rsync Download Post is Gone April 18, 2007Posted by Carthik in ubuntu.
The rsync download/update cdimage article I wrote is no more. Both Jonathan Riddell and Matt Zimmerman left a comment on the post to say that the excessive load caused by rsyncing users would kill the rsync server. So while this might have worked for one or two people, it won’t work if everyone tries it. I believed the best thing to do was to make the article “private” so as not to cause undue stress on the servers – I love servers and won’t have them thinking bad of me. I like humans too, and am sorry for posting a “solution” that was flawed.
The right thing to do would be to download the image through bittorrent the day Feisty is released. We have to be patient. 🙂
