School Server/RIT/File Distribution System
An alternative to extending e-book readers - a file distribution system for the server and a client for the XO. The goal of this project is to build an easy system to host files on the server that can be downloaded using the browser activity and possibly a file distribution downloader activity.
This project is broken into two sections, a server and the client.
