Post Betas... update current changes? 7z files/rar?
Hi -
sorry if it's 'timewaste' -
Would just like to know... : about current activity as I cannot find through googling the forum:

a) Has the stockage/access for betas changed from http://theword.net/files/beta/ ?
(last listed: theword-3.2.1.1234.7z 17-Sep-2011 09:47 3.4M -- over 1 month ago)
Am I missing something ? -
or Costas is on holiday? (hope so - for his blessing!!)
... or... well, just wondered. (It's - just an 'Unusual situation...'!)

b) Just interested also ...: in 'change' from .rar to '7z' (?):
Is this permanent?
Is it a slightly higher compression? (approx 10% -- 3.4M instead of 3.7M
(eg.theword-3.2.1.1230.7z 21-Aug-2011 17:00 3.4M
theword-3.2.1.1230.rar 20-Aug-2011 16:11 3.7M )
I had wondered - on seeing the list of betas available grow and grow - if there could become a stockage problem/or a cost/ on the server...:
so if there was any value in removing older archives...
-- Is the '7z' "change" to reduce load by 10%?

Again - sorry if timewasting...!

Bless
Mike

Hi Mike,
quick answers:
1. The location is the same
2. yes, latest beta is 1234, no major fixes after that
3. no vacation, just busy with other things (module mostly)
4. 7z replace rar, mostly due to the fact that 7z is completely free
5. Server space: no big problem (yet?)

Hi Costas -
Thanks for replies (And - I'm glad I'm not missing out... 8) (!)
Hoping all is well with you and yours - (there are many reasons for taking breaks... - including overload - and others too). God bless.
I - and so many - really appreciate your great work and generous heart and attitude.

Thanks Mike.
It's true that i am a bit 'overloaded'; this is not too unusual to be honest.
Thank you for you kind words, really appreciated,
Costas
