Standalone Internet Explorer and Hosting

Software226 words2 minutes to read

For those interested, I’ve added a few more mirrors for the Standalone IE downloads. I’m really beginning to feel the download stress here at, as I hit ~25GB transfer last month and my max is 30GB per month. So, I signed up for a Dreamhost account (I caught the 1 year for $7.77 deal!) which added another 40 or 60 GB of transfer a month… I forget which. Either way, I’m not too worried anymore about going over my transfer bandwidth for the month anymore.

I’ve gone ahead and added my new server ( to the download list as “Primary Download 1”. I’ve also finally gotten around to adding the mirror. Chris at has turned out to be a cool guy that I’ve gotten a chance to talk to a bit via IM. Although he’s not a weblogger, he does offer really good small business hosting plans (100 MB space and 1GB transfer for $30/year). Go give his website some love.

I’ve also been contacted by someone who knows how to enable conditional comments in the Standalone IE’s. I’ve really been lagging on getting this information out to the public, but I’m hoping to get to it this weekend. Keep an eye out.


I figured out how to get Bit Torrent setup, so you can now download these files via BT too!
