AmiUpdate: Suggestion: Timeout + Alt.-URL for Self-Update

Post by marko »

Hi, sometimes (not very often, but annoying when it happens) when I start AmiUpdate it is stuck waiting for the server/internet, so it can perform a Self-Update check...

So I suggest...

* A timeout variable (maybe it already exists?) (that is perhaps set in the preferences), that waits/reconnects n number of seconds before it cancels.
* If timeout, the user can cancel or try an alternative download location so it can perform the Self-Update check and continue running AmiUpdate.

EDIT:

* Perhaps the database with the contents also "needs" a backup / alternative server.

Thanks
