Just curious-- as if you don't have enough to do putting out server fires-- how is it possible to have successfully downloaded a "master file" when the status returns indicate the servers are done? Are these files stored elsewhere in the system, or is my success just due to sporadic server operation?
Have you ever considered separate servers for dishing out unprocessed packets versus those for receiving processed packets? At least when the receiving servers failed, we'd still be able to retrieve new packets. At the moment, I am at a CPU standstill.
Keep up the good work, though.
