Did you know there is a function built into the website that send emails 
to you if nodes are updated within a radius of yours.

The setting is within your node setup.

Kind Regards

Good idea. I was thinking, how hard would it be to make it so that whenever a new node is entered in the database, an automatic email is sent to all nodes within a reasonable distance of the new node? At the moment, if one is looking for peers, then one must constantly check the node listing, which I'm sure many interested people have forgotten to do.
