Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone else out there has done this yet.

A bunch of us all want to backup stuff.  We all have a fair amount of
free quota each month, we all have a couple of hundred GB or so spare.

So of course, why not play google and back up everything to each
other, and use something like bittorrent to share the data about, then
amongst the 7 or so of us things will always remain "synched".

Of course then we can add in encryption (at the other site) in time
but for now we are interested in just getting it going.

Thoughts?  anyone set up a "private" torrent tracker before and have a
handy PHP script or something to share?
