for some reason torrent flux isnt finding the tracker, so mine isnt seeding at the moment. When i get it back going again you should get good speed from it

The version 3.51 Torrent file is now on the site. I'm seeding it at 25kbs so it might be a touch slow at first.

I was unable to find a reference to the torrent on your website, I had to google for it. I'll seed it at least until I reach 1:1, but only at 5kb/s unfortunately.

Perhaps you should consider making torrent downloads a more permanent option - any self-respecting geek will be happy to use the torrent and save your bandwidth bill a bit, but you should probably leave the regular download for the less technically orientated.

No need to seed any more. The full install is now available on the site. Thanks for your help getting past the initial bandwidth rush.

Thanks to Shonky

Post by markinsydney » 06 November 07 12:08 pm

Hi all. I'm new to GPS and even newer to Geocaching. I just installed Shonky's maps into my Mapsource and I'm really impressed: great learning tool.

Thank you for going to so much trouble and making all your hard work available to everyone.

Regards
Markinsydney

Is anyone still seeding? I am about 50% done but last night it's just about stopped.

Assuming you've downloaded the version with the windows installer (shonkymaps_3.51.zip), there is a page in the setup wizard that allows the installation directory to be selected. It defaults to C:Program Filesshonkymaps, but can be amended if neccessary.
