Recall my complaining that your idea needed to be distributed/decentralized? Why not use what Azureus uses: The Kademlia system - http://azureus.aelitis.com/wiki/index.php/DistributedTrackerAndDatabase / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kademlia

It works, 'cause I just started downloading a file that's no longer tracked on the tracker 'cause the series got licensed - took less than 5 seconds for Azureus to find peers and start downloading.

On a slight tangent, I'm trying to figure out what happened to a really weird bittorrent swarm a few days ago. I was downloading a file, ~700MB, and saw the download stop cold at 99.9%. I looked at some of the graphs and whatnot, and there was one piece that wasn't showing up on any peers, and I couldn't get anything from the seeds. It stayed this way for about a day before I gave up. What could possibly do that?

::shrugs:: could be because a seed had a corrupted piece without realizing it, and kept spreading that, and clients will ban other clients who send them corrupted data. Although... it really shouldn't have stayed that way for a day... unless you only had, like, 4 or less seeds, with only one seed that could upload properly, and that being the corrupted seed...
