Joss, you could even be right, but that doesn't seem the best way to state 
your thoughts. 
WIth this tone I guess the OP wouldn't simply consider your mail.

Brian, it lacks the long description, right, we'll provide one asap.
Though, it serves just one file a given number of times, and then shutdown. 
It's something useful for distributing file in a LAN, if you don't want to 
install and setup a complete/complex webserver.
