Well spotted. :-)

The graph code (written in Ruby) polls both port 80 and port 11371, 
while the list code (written in Go) only polls 11371. Furthermore, is not referenced directly by any peer, but is -- it runs a proxy on port 80 (only) that 
forwards requests to This means that the Ruby 
spider can find by traversing syseleven port 80, 
but the Go spider can't.

Note that the Ruby code records every peer reference no matter what the 
error, whereas the Go code records only HTTP errors, and silently 
ignores connection failures. The Go code performs URL deduplication by 
detecting the hostname that the target server returns. The Ruby code 
doesn't; instead I bodged it by hard-coding a list of duplicates by hand 
(unresponsive servers don't return hostnames).

In any case, is not syncing because it has no 
mutual peers.
