Bittorrent simulator in Java (Processing) 

Wow, this is just a really cool simulation. If you've heard of Bittorrent before, but aren't sure how it works, this will help a lot to visualize what is going on. A "seed" is someone with a complete copy of the file, while a "leech" only has some of it. BT splits the seeds' files into tiny chunks and randomly portions it out to the leeches, who also send to each other at the same time. :)

Update: Also, the language it is made in Processing looks pretty interesting. I'll have to check it out closer once it becomes availible for download.
