What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In order to avoid using/installing BitTorrent:

Do you know of any third party that has put the Stack Overflow Creative Commons Data Dump(s) 7zip archive on their servers so that a direct download URL is available?

(At 200 MB it is within the same range of many podcasts and even more videocasts so the file size should not be a problem in itself — although of course content providers normally pay for it. But it could also be on another kind of server, such as for Open Source software or Creative Commons files).

What's wrong with using/installing BitTorrent? FUD? – mxmissile Sep 9 '09 at 16:03
Maybe corporate network policies? – therefromhere Nov 28 '09 at 17:20
Why would you legitimately need this data inside corporate network AND be unable to persuade IT to open BT for you? – Oleg V. Volkov Sep 24 '12 at 15:23

All 3 links: 404 – LihO Sep 30 '13 at 18:11

A list/directory of the Data Dumps (now broken) provided by Stu Thompson is available. And it is pony compliant too.

Note that, at the time of writing, the naming schemes differ. "October 2009 (SO/SF/SU)" equals "Creative Commons Data Dump Nov 09" - though broken by now (all data up until 2009-11-01).

Thanks go to Stu Thompson for this great service.
