The biggest problem is gonna be uploading it over my *$!* ADSL

I wasn't looking for hosting, just for somewhere to store the tracker.
It's my understanding (possibly incorrect) that the initial seed and
the tracker are separate things which don't need to be kept at the
same location.


They don't and if you want us to serve as the tracker but NOT as primary seed then I think that can be worked out, too.

Essentially you'd make a .torrent file with our tracker info in it - send us the .torrent file. We'll drop it in the holding path for the tracker and, ultimately, for our seed.

so we'd start downloading it, too.

or, alternatively, I could see about setting up a tracker-only non-seed path for our current tracker so that we could just track but not seed.

Provided your seed would be doing all the bit-pushing work :)
