"Avantslash is touting a user hosted perl script that, if paired with any web browser with JavaScript, promises to shave crucial bytes off of the standard Slash-based experience, one of which is our very own SoylentNews. Audiences include those with very limited bandwidth, such as those in developing countries with only 2G mobile access or dialup."

    How about a system where content served from SN can be mirrored from user PCs? A browser plugin or program for which can receive data from SoylentNews and distribute it to other PCs via http in the same way that BT works?

    Granted, some files will be updating every few minutes.. but still, for older stories and cached files it may be be beneficial.
