Cover disc downloads

Postby markdean » Fri Mar 07, 2014 3:11 am

Will cover disc torrent files (or some other way to download content) ever be available again? It's a bit mystifying. There are torrent files for lxf176 (and before), but not lxf177, there for lxf178 and lxf179 but none for lxf180 all the way up to and including the current lxf182. There are tutorial downloads but not discs.

What gives? Is this simply not going to be something you guys will be offering? Or am I missing something?

Color me confused...

Thanks for looking into this.

Apparently they want to upgrade the servers but the bean counters may have said no or the internal process is convoluted and long :shock:

Enjoy the Choice :)

I hope you are just being facetious...when you pay for a digital subscription the ability to download content becomes kind of important.

Besides, a torrent server can run on such modest hardware (I think there was even an LXF article about setting up a torrent server recently) it's hard to believe that that would be the reason.
