Sorry ......I'we been busy

Sorry, it's been some time since I'we blogged. The reason is that I'we been busy QA'ing, releasing and talking about OpenOffice.org 3.0.

Four (okay three and a half) release candidates through QA and the finally coordinate the final release. From distance this time. I was on vacation in Berlin, Germany at the time of release. So I might have sounded a little confused when a journalist called me and asked, what I had to say about the website was unreachable. Okay, thats what happens!

The worst is, that the download is still s...l...o...w. I think we need to think about mirroring in the future and how to ballance the trafic. To me it seems that the balancing (bouncer) is the problem. If you try to reach one of the servers directly, you will actually get the software. Problem no two is, that the statistics runs on the bouncer network, not on the mirror. So direct downloads are not messured. On the other hand; attempts through bouncer that fails, are actually counted as downloads.

If you ask me, the statistics are useless at this moment.
