A few months ago i installed opentracker on my server to test/debug
my udp-tracker-client code. I didn't (and don't) care much about it and let
it run as an open tracker.
Short story: It has gained enough popularity to make my DSL-Line unstable . d'oh..
Well, i could just point the A-Record to some TPB servers but wouldn't it be
cooler to do something like pool.ntp.org ?
We would just need a few servers with static IPs, setup opentracker syncing
and some scripts to auto-update the A-Records if one of them fails.
This could result in a robust tracker distributed across multiple countries/networks.
Would someone like to join? :-)
