Hosting

Well, let me apologize people for the blatant slowness of our page loading.AA This should be fixed quite soon.AA Our hosting company (godaddy) apparently thinks that because we’re ninjas they can mess with our life’s work, which is a bit racialist if you ask me. I just spent quite a clip on customer service. OK, back to the content, and thanks again to all you supporters.

The founder of geoTorrent.org, Richard Orchard writes in a forum post:

Using traditional means, electronic distribution of datasets this size is economically expensive and practically inefficient. If a single file is 5 GB in size, and 1000 people want to download it, 5 terabytes of information needs to be served. If there were 100 high demand files, this would equate to 500,000 gigabytes!a€A

Orchard says he sees his platform as proof that P2P technologies such as BitTorrent aren’t just used to illegally transfer copyrighted content. "There is a lot of talk in the press about the evils of peer-to-peer technology. However, GeoTorrent demonstrates the benefits a practical, workable use of peer-to-peer technology. Without this technology the distribution of large datasets would not be viable."

Like Siberia

Viganella’s problem is that it was built at the bottom of a very steep-sided Alpine valley, right up against the Swiss border.

The southern side of the valley is so sheer that on 11 November the sun disappears and does not reappear until 2 February.

Not a single ray of sunlight falls on Viganella in the weeks in between.

"It’s like Siberia," one of the village’s nearly 200 residents has said.

However, the south-facing slopes to the north do get sunshine just a few hundred metres above the village.

So the mirror was mounted on the mountainside to reflect sunlight into the village’s main piazza.
