BitTorrent Test Files

Are there any large BitTorrent test files (i.e., content) that are available? I want to do some tests without worrying about downloading illegal content at work.

You can download Debian Linux via torrent.

You can usually download your favorite bittorrent client through bittorrent (e.g. Azureus). Usually a huge number of seeds too, so it works well as a test.

You can also look for a previous version of Azureus and you'll be prompted to DL the updates - via torrent.
