AltME: Syllable

Messages

That just works, and in under two minutes :-)
Is it meant for public downloads?
AdrianS
sure, if you share it that way
same as all the others +/- some little things - you have 5 GB too if you have GMail, no?
Kaj
So you can host it there?
AdrianS
yeah, lots of people have links to google docs files
I mean out in the public
Kaj
I have Google Drive?
Yeah, but this is a big file, and it's going to be downloaded many times
AdrianS
yeah, google drive is part of  google docs - they've sort of unified everything
Kaj
I don't use Google Docs
AdrianS
I wouldn't worry - never saw them specify limits on Docs fies
that was free too for individual use
you have google docs too, if you had gmail
well, you might need to register, actually - but there's no cost
Kaj
The hosting is not the point, though. I can host files, but if it's an official Syllable release, I should have done all the quality control and it should be in all the usual places, such as SourceForge. If it's a contribution, the hosting should also be contributed to make that clear, and I can just link to it
I'll publish your link one of these days. Can I use your name to credit you?
AdrianS
up to you - if you need it to idemnify yourself, go ahead - personally, I don't need to see a credit with the link
I'm curious - how much traffic do you get from the image downloads?
Kaj
Not for indemnification, just for credit. It's a volunteer project, after all
Syllable versions have been downloaded several ten thousand times per version. If a version is current for a long time, the VM image could be downloaded twenty thousand times, for example
