I thought this was a good article. Not sure why the other posters are so annoyed that their pet "rendezvous" standards are not mentioned... this article just points out how this stuff works at the socket level, and how you can build quick-n-dirty broadcast-based rendezvous into your app with just a few lines of code and no external libraries.

I think this is a useful general technique that more developers need to be aware of. Thanks for the article.
