Geeks giveth and taketh away

Slashdot has an article about the new World Wind software from NASA. Naturally, this causes NASA's servers to choke from the load of trying to serve up a 200+ megabyte file to every geekboy on the planet.

Solution? Several bittorrent files have been posted. Now I'm grabbing this monster file in under 30 minutes, instead of looking at a day. Good thing Orrin Hatch hasn't gotten this Peer to Peer stuff outlawed yet. I wonder if there is some other substantial non-infringing use out there? :-)
