Hey, on a topic (and when I won't accidently send the message because of
evil control key on keyboard),
I understand you have the difficulty of trying to avoid bandwidth overload.
Here's what I suggest.
There exists a program like this for macintosh, that takes as an input two
different versions of any file, and produces an executable that can take the
earlier version and convert it to the latter version, by altering the
appropriate bytes and adding appropriate bytes etcetc.
Now, obviously, if it's just the binary equivalent of a changelog, this
should prove to be smaller than the full distribution, as the people can
just use their old version and update. Now, side by side with the full this
should prove to be very tantalizing to the slow connection users, those who
pay by the megabyte, and those who just want to be kind to your hosting.
There should be a similar program for Windows. Would you like me to seek it
out? Does this sound like a good idea?
