In the wake of ThePirateBay trial and subsequent aftermath related to the risks of hosting a BitTorrent tracker in Sweden (or, even being a denizen and hosting it elsewhere), most major Nordic private trackers have now all but complied with AntiPiratByran. However, two such trackers are having the last laugh - SweDVDR and SoftMP3 have willfully made their tracker source code available for anyone who wishes to set up their own tracker. Just don’t do it in Sweden.
Ironically, the source code for both trackers is publicly available on BitTorrent.
SoftMP3 posted this message:
Softmp3 is closed and will not be opened up again.
I’ve decided to share the sourcecode as a contribution to the torrent community, so feel free to do whatever you may feel like with it.

Shit, that what I am talking about. Awesome. Thank you Sharky, ones again. Very nice article.
I suppose this mean that swedvdr won´t open up again either… Too bad..
It would have been nice if they, and all trackers, did this a long time ago.
Its unfortunate that they have to shut down, buts its great of them to release the code.
Look how easy it’s becoming for new trackers to pop up just after other ones go down.
We can almost literally copy and paste a tracker now.
Sorry MAFIAA, you’re losing.

the images no longer work.
@ whoever posted them.
photobucket probably does not like hotlinking.
next time try using your isp or a photo service that allows hotlinking

That was a single of essentially the most beneficial posts I’ve seen in a extended extended time. A good deal appreciated, I’m doubtless have to hold round right here far extra.
