i have two small questions:

1.) i am trying to find out how observer mode works. Connecting to  
eg. pickled at 2593 is apparently not enough. I tried JTrek too. but  
am in the dark what a client should do to act as observer

2.) what would be good metaservers to probe? metaserver.netrek.org ?  
what else? and would they list the same servers or different ones?
