Actually, when you think about it, Garry did save money and we got greater benefits. How?
[li]By using coblitz, you could send the torrent out at reletively low bandwidth measures, and then give higher speeds via amazon
[/li][li]People were seeding. if costs and b/w usage were about the same, this is good. It may not seem it, but consider these factors- People were seeding, downloads were faster and better. This means that Garry was saving money indirectly with people seeding. On some files, there were over 100 seeds meaning that money was actually being saved
[/li][li] Speeds were great, and everyone could contribute, bringing together a greater community feeling
I liked it, it was nice. Sure, it’s nice to have a direct download now, but I fear that with it being direct from S3, within days, costs will fly up beyond what Garry is expecting, just simply because seeders are gone. Torrents were fine and it even helped people learn that they aren’t evil virus ridden beings from beyond.
(Expecting mass disagrees now)
