Should I start a BT tracker?

October 25th, 2007

This is one of those ideas I get sometimes. The kind that are big-headed, foolish and bound to fail miserably.
But, to fill the void after OiNK, I’m considering starting my own BitTorrent tracker. I will never be able to make it though. I don’t have anywhere decent to host it. I could host on my 8/1 ADSL line, but that’s no good… I don’t have any BT tracker software ready to run. My software of choice will probably be TBSource. However, it’s said to be filled with bugs, and I’d force myself to go through the whole source code to kill bugs and customize it, using time I don’t have.
In short it’s bound to fail, and even if I try my hardest it probably will. But I still think it’s a good idea. Sorry for wasting my time on a useless post, but I just needed to get this idea out of my head.
