OK that's fine, I'll implement it tonight.

I assume you keep the same directory structure as you have now? It's 
currently giving me 404 so feel free to create this, else I'll have to 
change the download location on the website.

I'll need to make some changes on the server; currently the patches 
aren't mirrored.

Ok no problem, just send it to me and I'll make sure it is run (or 
integrated into the main update-site script).

You mean WRT the hints? I've just updated it :)
