Scream if you want to go faster
BuyVM, the main hosting service that I use for OpenELEC builds at resources.pichimney.com (and openelec.thestateofme.com), moved servers from San Jose to Las Vegas over the weekend. Whilst the move was happening I temporarily redirected traffic to my secondary VPS to avoid any down time.
I’ve just switched things back to the main server, as it has a much larger bandwidth allowance, but I suspect/fear that it’s going to be much slower than before (moving files between the boxes, which is part of the build process, has been about 10x slower). Let me know in comments below if you experience issues downloading image files or release bundles?
One option for speeding things up might be to distribute files using BitTorrent, and I’d be happy to use my servers as seed boxes. Let me know if you’d be interested in trying this (in the comments below)?
 I thought I’d hit publish on this a couple of days ago, but apparently not
