I am thinking about using coolrom.com for ROM-downloads since it is the most convenient site to use.
Other sites either use sharehoster like mediafire, etc. or use captcha-methods to prevent users from downloading without visiting.
coolrom only has a counter - seems to be fairly easy to circumvent, but I can't figure out how... Can someone help me out here?
Another option would be to setup an own server for this - a server which practically mirrors the ROMs and only makes them available for this program to use (at some point probably opening a website though).
For this however I would need money... I can do it first on my own VPS, but once it would reach a certain traffic-point I would have to collect donations in order to keep it up.
So as of now (without knowledge how to circumvent the countdown) I will provide a few ROMs on my VPS.
I hope you're allowing searching for nzb's for these kinds of roms too.
