The idea came from Tag who needed a means to synchronize his stream machine without overloading the network traffic in order to avoid skipping. The solution was this little copy utility that he and lone coded over a night while drinking coffee, redbulls, and smoking cigarettes at the fire exit every 20 minutes. It allows you to select a list of source directories and a target, and to specify a maximum throughput.

Because all great (hmm) things should be free, this should be too. Not only that, we're pretty much giving away all rights to it, giving you the source, and letting you do what you want with it (see the license below).
