DC++ Hub And Torrent Tracker Up For Testing
I'll just copy'n'paste my post from Quaddicted ;)
I installed both a DC++ Hub and a torrent tracker at 22.214.171.124. You can reach the tracker at http://126.96.36.199
and the hub at 188.8.131.52:4444. If you don't know what a DC++ hub or a torrent tracker is, either google or just don't bother. If it goes to a nicely usable state I will write tutorials for using.
Why this? Well, if a decent amount of people share their Quake files on the DC++ hub it should be very easy to find maps/models/mods/engines/whatever without the need to do a google marathon. Speeds might be slow but who cares? And the torrent tracker might be a nice way to distribute huge files like movies or mappacks (depends on the user's upload speeds too). Personally I don't care if a download lasts some hours if I get something new or rare. I already heard some rather disappointing voices too.
What do you think? Is it something nice or something totally useless?
Sure I registered a nice domain for it, but somehow it doesn't work :< If you are experienced with Plesk, please shout.
