I am hosting the gnuarm.com web site. Pablo came to me with the idea
of putting the files for the GNU ARM distribution up on a site in a
precompiled form. Initially it seemed like a pretty easy task. Turns
out this has been more popular than we expected. I am glad that we
can provide a service to the community after all these years of
benifiting from the contributions of others.
Pablo came up with a framed page format that allows his download page
to remain independant of any advertising while the site hosts can
benifit from the exposure and/or ad revenue to support the site. In
my case I am using google ads to help pay for the cost of the site
hosting. I don't expect to make any money off of these ads. This
site is generating a lot of bandwidth costs and may become a victim of
its own success if it can't generate some revenue.
So please read the ads and click on them if they seem useful. And
most of all, enjoy the site! Like the rest of you, I am interested in
the new features that Pablo is adding soon!
