No site copying PLEASE!

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Earlier this evening I figured out why Erin's BC TopShelf site has been having so many problems. People have been using a site copying program to download an entire copy of her site to their local hard drives for off-line reading. PLEASE DO NOT DO THAT ON STARDUST!

Stardust runs on an ISDN line at a very slow 128,00 bits per second. Using a copying program can bring the site to a complete halt because of the lack of bandwidth. I can and will, if forced, restrict just how much can be downloaded at any given time. This hurts everyone, not just the people using the copying software. Please don't make me do this and please don't make Erin and I resort to that measure on BCTS.
