I've read about the Ricktendo's case. I probably should have stated it more clearly but the problem discussed here is not about the main host but rather a host for the test
versions. As you can see on my website, all main packages (UURollup/UR2) are available to download from three different sources. One of them is indeed SkyDrive but the link used is the one utilising the Virus Warning trick so the large size executable files' problem doesn't affect it.
On the other hand, some time ago I started to upload test versoins (daily
, etc.). There are a lot of them so I don't want to link to the files one by one but rather have one URL where anyone interested can browse them. I've used SkyDrive for this but until today I didn't know that you had to log in in order to download larger executables. That's why I'm seeking for a solution
I don't think that using Dropbox for this would bring any trouble as it wouldn't be use as my main hosting but rather for distributing test versions only. The problem with Dropbox is that I just would prefer to keep it for other files. SkyDrive's web interface is better than Dropbox too.
If not for the EXE problem SkyDrive seems to be an ideal hosting. It offers 7GB for free, files can be easily accessed and browsed through. After thinking about I would say that uploading test versions packed is not such a bad idea. If they are packed then anyone can download them without being logged on and another big advantage is that 7-Zip has much better compression than CAB. Now it's not that important but will be when USP5.2's test versions are ready.
Anyway, thank you very much for all opinions and suggestions
