There is currently no Mac version, but we are working on one (slowly).
 If you can help us with that, send us an email.

The Purpose of Stotella

  • To alleviate the strain (that is, save Internet bandwidth) on the St. Olaf Academic computing network by the duplicate downloads by members of the St. Olaf community of non-copyrighted files that other members of campus would benefit from by avoiding long download times.
  • To provide a simple and effective manner for students to access files from their computer to fulfill the need of access that is not met by H drive.

Stotella is:

  • NOT "Napster-like" - Stotella is capable of handling any file type necessary to facilitate sharing of non-copyrighted files.
  • NOT designed to "facilitate the transfer of Illegal materials."
  • NOT controlled by any one person or connected via one central server. It is a free market for the open exchange of information.
  • NOT to be used for the purposes of illegal Acts.

All users should be aware that:

  • Sharing or downloading files to which you do not own the copyright is illegal. If you think you may have downloaded something that is copyrighted, but are not sure, delete the file.
  • There is an inherent risk to downloading items from the Web or any other kind of peer-to-peer system.
  • We are not responsible for damages of problems that you encounter. This includes, but is not limited to, computer damage, disruption of normal computer operation, damage to computer software, loss of business, computer virus attacks, personal injury, or acts of God.
  • There is no warranty or guarantee of any type, implied, or stated.
  • This program falls under the GPL.
