Video of the Mono Presentation at PDNUG Available(for a limited time)

Once more, I owe my great friends and collaborators Todd Berman, Geoff Norton and TJ Fontaine for helping me seed and make available the Video of the Plano .NET User Group meeting were the Mono team presented:

Mono Development for Windows .NET Programmers

I think that you should really consider getting a hold of this. We are making the downloads available during the next 48 hours or so. After that, we will likely pull the plug.

You will need a BitTorrent Client to get these files. There are two versions of the Video:

monovideo.torrent - is a 50 MB postage stamp size video of the complete 1 hour and 30 minutes available of footage. That file contains video of about 320x240.

pdnug-cdsize.wmv.torrent - is a 535 MB 640x480 that really shows as well as the MPEG files that make up my Pre-Master DVD.

Please, be a good citizen and after the download leave it up so that you can act as a seed to others interested in obtaining the files and to keep the generously donated bandwidth from our heroes above from total depletion.

The final word on this is that if we all do this right we may use this same methodology as early as next week to distribute the Mono/Cygwin CD that so many people have clamor for. This last disc is the one that I have handed out in conferences and that is periodically mailed to Ximian in Cambridge for the Core Team to use.

Yes, great presentation, thanks for making it available! I posted a link with info about it in the forums at the Nashville Visual Studio.NET users group site as well.

Hey, Paco.

Did you pull the plug on the torrents already? :-(

I haven't been reading blogs for the last month or so, so I totally missed out on these news. There's $5 for ya if you mail me a CD. :-)

I'll keep an eye out for the Mono/Cygwin CD torrent.

Don PJ!

Glad to hear from you! The video should still be available and the Cygwin CD is finally available also.

Hi again, Paco.

I am downloading the CD image and the CD-size video from home, I should have them in about 4 hours.

My two virtual private servers are already done downloading, and I haven't finished writing this comment! I'll keep them seeding the torrents for as long as possible.

I'm also serving the monowin.torrent and pdnug-cdsize.wmv.torrent files at so send people that-a way if you want.
