I'm not sure which you're referring to, my suggestion that you use a DBM
file (with locking, of course) on 1 machine or NFS.  I have no experience
with NFS myself but I've heard of other using it for such things (or
trying to, at least).  I would think a database would end up being the
simplest way to do this sort of information passing.
