The St. Isidore e-book library is now on the Interplanetary File System (IPFS)! IPFS is a peer-to-peer, distributed means of storing information; thus, there is no central point of failure (unlike Dropbox etc., which use centralized servers).

It can be accessed via Isidore.co's IPFS node or, if Isidore.co is down, through the IPFS public gateway (which is simply another IPFS node).

Happy feast of Corpus Christi!

I've disabled IPFS for the time being. It's still experimental software, and it was taking up ┬╝ of the server's RAM! So much for Go lang's supposedly superior garbage collection abilities!
