B) As secondary method, we will offer direct download links:(none yet)...as soon as the TORRENT is spread enough and "stable"!Please do NOT post alternate download mirrors in the forum if you want to offer a mirror. Give the torrent some time to get stable (won't take longer than a day). If you want to offer a mirror, please PM Residual, he will take care about adding the links here."
