We at SceneSource have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a new service, and what we believe to be the first PHP adaption of an IRC trace. Never heard of #trace before? Thats ok, below we’ll explain the basics to you.

The original idea came from the IRC #trace channels on various networks. These channels track uploads to the various private torrent sites around the internet, and then compare them with the other private trackers, and then tells you how they rank compared to other trackers, like a race. This would require the user to idle on the IRC channel for hours just watching text scroll by, or occasionally checking to see if something they like has been traced… not anymore!

SceneSource, in partnership with APN, have developed what we believe to be the first public “TraceDB”, where we track and store the information a normal trace channel would display and discard. We allow you to search and sort, as well as view various statistics and view the sites traced.

So what are you waiting for? Head over to and check it out today!

    isn’t this just like dupecheck project and other pre databases??

  4. 4. Lee (Sysop) Oct 10th, 2009 at 6:13 pm

    No, dupecheck just tells you what has pre’d. It doesn’t tell you wheres its been raced to, you could almost call this an exntension on a dupecheck project.

    Hey, for some reason the TRAC3 and the DUP3 don’t work for me but when I go through a proxy, they work. Any thoughts on why?

    Not sure why you can access, unless your trying to access from a banned IP…

    Three days I’ve been tryin and not once has the DNS resolved, that is across all the world’s root servers most of which deny any knowledge of .me
    what BS is this?

  19. 19. Lee (Sysop) Oct 13th, 2009 at 1:12 am

    Dude if your DNS doesn’t resolve any .me addresses your DNS is screwed. Try using something like OpenDNS instead of your ISP DNS who probably filters what you can and cannot access.

    Here is proof the DNS is perfectly fine > search for with ANY

  20. 20. Booger Oct 13th, 2009 at 1:44 am

    Lee, please be kind to laymen like me. For a novice, how would this help me at all? The most basic use of this thing would be appreciated. Just PLEASE, no jargons so I can easily follow.

    Thanks dude…

    Then that website has a few guides on how to change your DNS server, wasn’t trying to be rude, just pointing out that everything on our end works, albeit a bit slow.

    ;; ANSWER SECTION: 38400 IN A

    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION: 38400 IN NS 38400 IN NS

    looks like someone forgot a . when setting up the dns. hense the bit….

    could be why it works for some and not all?
