I was unable to connect to Hipihi today so I tried a little trick, I got the url for my most recent download of Hipihi, http://www.hipihi.com/download/HiPiHi_world_30011.exe , and changed the last digit of the filename from a one to a 2, assuming there might be a mandatory upgrade and that the version number might be just one character different from the previous one.
The seeemingly current URL is http://www.hipihi.com/download/HiPiHi_world_30012.exe
Lo and behold, it’s downloading, at a whopping 4.3 KB/s.
I think maybe the Hipihi folks should seed a torrent.
As to whether the file I’m downloading actually is a new improved version, or something else, I’ll have to wait to find out, because the 43.9 million byte file at the now reduced 3.5 KB/s rate will take three and a half hours.
…. time passes ….
I see now that there is an announcement forum in the Hipihi company’s forums at http://forums.hipihi.com/forum-index-18.html that appears to have current info on new versions.
