As for a checksum I should probably add as well, I just never really
thought about that, but it is a good point. I will start doing it from now
on, starting with the less update.
As for the two vs. one file thing I think using two files for the updates
I have done so far at least would be overkill. There is not that many
files I need to remove from the original archieves.
