is it possible to implement the following idea
a "add to cart" like system where you add each program for download to a cart and when u are ready to start downloading u "complete" the transaction the server uses a dynamic code to create a .tar or other type of archive for download and sends that to the user. (a variation of this would be a self extracting archive wrapped in the portable apps launcher installer thingy)
i believe this would be repetitively easy as all you would need is a copy of non compressed data on the server and when you decided on downloading you could simply wrap the data and send it to the user. i realize that you use a very large infrastructure to host this site and am giving this as an example HFS or http file server/home file server has the option of downloading an entire folder as a .tar archive if this is possible on a small scale how difficult could this be for your system to do?
thanking you in advance for your opinions and not flaming my idea as soon as you see it
