Updater - Sourceforge mirror

Is there any way to set a specific sourceforge mirror for Updater? The mirror chosen as the nearest geographically is not so “near.”

Yah, when I use sourceforge, it loads iWeb, which is halfway across the USA from me. CDNetworks in San Juan is closer. I guess it is a problem in pinpointing the location from your IP address and therefor on SF's end

BTW

BTW, “PortableApps.com Updater 1.0 Beta 2” had this feature:
https://portableapps.com/node/16779

You are able now to pre select Your favorit SF mirror in the format:
[mirror root]/[project root]eg.:
http://dfn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/portableapps/

Could Add

If there's interest, I could add it in as a feature. It's not in from the old Beta 2 updater as the current updater was a complete re-write for better features and performance. It'd probably only be recommended for advanced users as some mirrors are bad about updating timely, so you may not be able to get new releases right away. When using the redirector, it understands this and if the app isn't yet on your normal mirror, it'll give you a different one.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Yeah, I also wanna the mirror

Yeah, I also wanna the mirror site to update cause there are too many original sites that I cannot access(or at a very low speed, ~5kb/s)

YOUR PC IS NOW STONED!!!
