Coral: The NYU Distribution Network "Are you tired of clicking on some link from a web portal, only to find that the website is temporarily off-line because thousands or millions of other users are also trying to access it? Does your network have a really low-bandwidth connection, such that everyone, even accessing the same web pages, suffers from slow downloads? Have you ever run a website, only to find that suddenly you get hit with a spike of thousands of requests, overloading your server and possibly causing high monthly bills? If so, Coral might be your free solution for these problems!"

Could be good for offloading bandwidth caused by mefi links.

Fortunately the US Senate is trying to outlaw P2P technologies, we can't have this kind of thing it's too dangerous to freedom.

As mentioned here (in Metatalk, which'd be why you didn't find it...I thought it was a fine link for the front page, myself).

See also FreeCache which can be used by adding before the URI of a file between 5 and 1000 MB.
