[Foundation-l] BitTorrent Downloads

Since I have open sourced the wikix program, now anyone wanting the 
images can download them directly from Wikipedia. 
I am in process of restructuring the WikiGadugi site, so anyone wanting 
the bittorrent downloads need to finish up this week,
as I will discontinue them shortly since folks now have the ability to 
download them directly.   The wikix program
is not very intensive on the main Wikimedia servers.   The program is 
setup to behave as several workstations, and it really
does not take that long to get the images. 

To date, under ten folks have downloaded the entire image archive, so it 
does not appear that there is that much interest.
