ctempleton3 is flying high

Swarming is a good idea, but correct me if I am wrong it can not work on the current network procalls. if it can how would it be implimted. I am specificly would like to know how client would relate thousands of smaller files and peice them togther to one larger file. Also what would happen if users are offline that have crucial peices of the file. Would the download fail or would it have to wait maby an extended amount of time till a client logs in that has the file and is not busy? Swarming sounds good for smaller size files but puts a practical limit on the size of the file this could work with.

I am realy intrested in this could you please elbrate some more on your idea.
