EasyList downloads moved to MozDev · 2008-10-29 14:01 by Wladimir Palant
EasyList has been doing great lately, its user base is constantly growing. The downside of this — tens of millions of download requests arriving at easylist.adblockplus.org each month, amounting to hundreds of gigabytes in traffic. And while the server can easily handle these requests, the bandwidth use of my account is dangerously approaching the limit. Yes, a merely 8 kB small file can do that to you if downloaded sufficiently often.
The kind guys at MozDev offered to help me out with the bandwidth issues. So now all downloads from easylist.adblockplus.org will redirect to MozDev. That doesn’t mean that you have to go into Adblock Plus preferences and change the download location — nothing changes for the users of the subscription, and in case of problems I can remove the redirect at any time.
