Download traffic for old releases
03/01/20 09:38 PM


This is mostly relevant to the man AntoPISA himself, but there’s nothing confidential/sensitive, so I’ll post it on the public forum. We really appreciate that you’ve been providing a mirror for old MAME releases all these years. We’ve been linking to your site for downloads of pre-0.100 releases for quite a while now.

I was wondering how much traffic we’ve been sending your way, and if you know how good your peering is for download speeds around the world. I’ve been considering switching the default download mirror to SourceForge for releases 0.30 to 0.99. This would take a bit of load off your server, and SourceForge has a really good mirror network, even better than GitHub’s Amazon AWS for places like South America. The one disadvantage of SourceForge is that there’s an extra mirror selection redirect page with some ads on it.

I haven’t made a final decision yet, and I wanted to get your thoughts.
