|This is not the same BoffoMac from the 90's, but this site will feature some of the same quality Mac links and software as the original site. The Hotline tracker/server is run by preterhuman.net.|
The world of Hotline was pretty exciting in the late 1990's to early 2000's. Hotline Comm initially ran the two main tracker servers known as mac.hltracker.com and pc.hltracker.com. Between the Mac and PC users there was much conflict and whenever a server purposely listed on the wrong tracker, it was often attacked or hacked in some way. Icon lists made their way into Hotline providing a graphical overhaul of the userlist. The three more well known lists include SoSueMe, Badmoon, and Digital Obsession. Eventually a few large and open trackers united all servers together. A few examples include tracker.sunwave.com, tracked.group.org, and dmp.fimble.com. Sadly, most of the community has gone on to other things. A few people still linger on the remaining Hotline servers, and a few others have moved over to the KDX protocol (closed source, no longer being developed). Two other protocols which have small followings include Wired and Carracho.
There are still a few running Hotline trackers kicking around today, and we do have an updated listing of active trackers and servers here. Using these in your Hotline Client software, simply drop them into the tracker configuration and load the listing. Quick list: tracker.preterhuman.net, hltracker.com, tracked.nailbat.com, tracked.stickytack.com.
