I have experience with BT Sync, and think it could be a good solution.

About Trasmission, I forgot to say you need transmission-cli package
too to operate via console...

And to create a torrent storage online at full speed... How about this?

>> The current step
>> 1. Make tarball: xz compression by default.
>> Select compression, tarball name, drive in a menu
>> 2. Add in README how to install language properly
>> 3. Move in README mkusb before manual method
>> 4. Select tarball:
>> Make clear what is the standard (and easy) method
>> Own directory for tarballs: /tarballs linked with ~/tarballs
>> Import tarballs via the internet: lynx and/or wget
>> 5. dd-image-file with Lubuntu 13.10 included
>> --------------------------------------------
>> Further in the future
>> 6. Lubuntu-Xubuntu tarball
>> 7. Use prepared partitions (made with gparted) to install tarball and
>> swap. This opens the door to dual boot systems with the OBI.

>> 1. Select download with Lynx

>> 3. Press the 'Enter' key
>> 4. Press the 'd' key to download the tarball
>> 5. Press the 'Arrow Down' key to high-light 'Save to disk'
>> 6. Press the 'Enter' key
>> 7. Edit the file name if you wish and press 'Enter' again
>> 8. Press 'q' to quit.
>> 9. Confirm quitting with 'y'
