Announcing RyanVM Tracker 2.0!

Post by RyanVM » Sun Apr 08, 2007 2:09 pm

After a lot of work mostly by JonathanTNeal and a little by myself, I'm proud to announce the birth of RyanVM Tracker 2.0! On the surface, it probably won't appear to be much different than the old version - mostly just a visual overhaul. However, underneath the surface it has been completely rewritten.

While Tracker 1.0 was a heavily-modified version of the T-Xore indexer along with a basic BT tracker modified to support authentication, Tracker 2.0 has been completely written from the ground up. It's faster and leaner than ever, and from an admin standpoint it's vastly improved.

Also, from here out, Tracker 2.0 will officially be taking over as my primary distribution method for all new ryanvm.net files (Update Packs, addons, etc). This is in response to the overwhelming demand for my releases and people with no netiquette sending a disproportional number of download requests. The combination has led to severe download problems as many of you have witnessed (500 errors and such). It's my hope that making the files available by BitTorrent only for the first 3-5 days will alleviate the high initial demand to allow for better overall performance.

to get the files faster it really depends who seeds and for how long
this file stand alone i can pull in probably less then a minute as for now 15 -25 in the range of 30-40 kb
thats if their is a good seeder around and the tracker can detect one or how ever this works ..
overall its ok ;) when i finally finished getting the file .
good tracker, good luck!!

You forgot to give us the URL for the RSS feed. Maybe a link somewhere in the tracker's footer or something?




I figured it out the URL, btw. I guess not mentioning it might be a good way to weed out the folks that aren't exactly ... savvy. ;)

Any RSS capable web browser should show the little feed icon where appropriate.

Weird, works here without a problem. You should have the orange icon in your location bar.

works fine in the new Opera (9.2), downloading was fast, I'll be seeding for a few hours tonight.

By The Way, the new 'speed dial' in Opera plus a few of their widgets makes your browser home page really, really cool......
