It's my intention to operate two nntp servers from different locations, adding stability to the network.

I think we should share password files for server connections to eachother (they are encrypted). This way, any server can connect to any other server at any time. Hopefully linking to more than one server at all times. This way also, new nodes only need to acquire a password from one other node, then it is shared. No other nodes know the password, but can provide access to the new node.

Proper channels of communication can be worked out fairly easily.
