It would be nice if Frontcode would update their news page.

well the wait has been painfull as frontcode rarely talks about the development or lack there of. Im fine with 3.31 but 4.0 would be something cool to play with. I do wish there was some word or an update on their VERY outdated web page. Frontcode, please need the info!

Not to mention that Shareaza is more user friendly than WinMX, and it verifys download integrity and identifys fake files? Seems like the right choice to me... am i wrong?


shareaza is a good gnutella 1/2 client, has no spyware etc. it doesn't use ed2k very well, and i don't think it supports hoarde downloading or overnet. please don't use if for torrents as it is very unstable, reports incorrect information to other peers in the torrent and unpredictably drops connetions. the recent drop in performance of torrents is partly due to the increased popularity of shareaza.

I'm sure they'll have it done by February 2009.

By the time they get it done, it will be more obsolete than WinMX 3.31 is now.

If they ever get it done, that is.

However, I really think they canceled it and just don't want to admit it. They closed shop and all of them have already found new jobs, most likely.

Funny, we haven't heard a peep from SlyckTom for a long time now. Hey Tom, where'd ya go?

Kazaa and the fastrack network is full of shit, I've had viruses from files downloaded using that proggie before and if it hadn't been for AVG it would have crippled my computer. Kazaa lite may have no spyware, but it's still flooded with fakes and most targeted by the RIAA for the sharing of copyrighted files. To sum it up, none of them are safe, especially kazaa, so "The Notorious" I and im sure like many others feel you may be speaking out of your arsehole :D

Look towards the bottom for my reply before you actually attempt to attack me...

Kazaa Lite used to be my favorite. However once the RIAA declared that they were suing individuals sharing copyrighted files on the FastTrack network - the network itself have deteriorated ever since & still is becoming crappier and lousier by the day with more fake files and viruses...

This has lead me to seek out alternatives. Choices that actually turn up to be a lot better than Kazaa Lite at its peak (the days right before the RIAA invasion - it was awesome, don't get me wrong) such as being able to easily download full albums. This proves to be challenging when trying to obtain an album from a network that supports the multi-source feature.

The one year anniversary of the "ban" rule will be coming up shortly - I wonder if this rule has an expiration date? I suggest 2 years. After that there should be no doubt. :P

3 days after the last post a chat update is released. Not 4.0, just simple upgrades. What have they been doing?

First everyone whines that WinMX was doing nothing. Now that they are doing SOMETHING you all are still whining. The program is free and the developer(s) owes us nothing so just be happy that something is being done or just don't use the damn thing and move on to whining about something else (preferably ELSEWHERE) that you feel is wrong in your life. You ever think that all of these betas are just Frontcode's way of making sure that everything works before they release a 4.0? How long after this 4.0 is released (hopefully) will it take before someone complains that 4.1 needs to come out? Is WinMX really all that much more important than what is going on outside your "computer cove"? Have any of you whiners ever donated a dime to Frontcode? Believe it or not, there is a real world out there away from your computer desk. Check it out and use some of your energy for a REAL cause.

... just a little bit. Kazaa lite++ resurAction is a good p2p client, on it's own.

But:
Now that they are doing SOMETHING you all are still whining. The program is free and the developer(s) owes us nothing so just be happy that something is being done


I couldn't agree more. Every who's whining about Winmx 4.0 not coming out, shut up and enjoy what you have. Not only has the vast majority of the world's population a much worse life than all of you fat pizza slurping obese monsters, they are also far too busy dodging bullets, carrying 10 gallons of water 10 miles per day and avoiding land mines. Not to mention all the homeless people in your own country or town. Or even the minimun wage earners.

I mean, it's not like you paid squat for WinMX.


Kazaa. Yeah, yeah it sucks because of this and that, bla bla. At the same time, if you want something reasonably populous, you can get it there. Winmx is more the rare files, p@rn@ etc. Just like Slseek. In my experience [and that's what this whole thing is about, experiences with different clients,] apperantly they differ among the peeps, so instead of bashing each others head in, you should be comparing notes and working out why one person gets a much better result than another person on a given p2p. Is it OS? networks? Geography? Easterbunnies?
For example, on win95, d.l.'s always goes slower as uptime increases.

Kazaalite++Rrrectum has it 's good sides. Probably Notorious just likes Eminem and britney speared, so that's good 4 that. Other peeple might like the Hard Rock band from Mongolia, for one-eyed lesbian midgets, so they go 2 winmx. Who gives a flying Vokc?

I myself use winmx, kazaa resur, and slsk. I stopped using emule. BECAUSE eMULE MAKES YOU AN UPLOAD BITCH!!! %$^%$#%$#@%^ I literally connected for 24 hrs straight to eMule and at the end of the day i uploaded 65 mb and d.l. maybe 530 kb. How's that for balance? I say Vokc that!!!! I don't wanna be nobody's bitch, i get that in my relationship already, thank you.

eMule SUCKS BIG

yeah, well believe it or not the UL:DL ratio for all users is 1:1. you just have to know how to configure it properly.

YEAH,
RIGHT!!!


Maybe in a strictly philosophical sense, like in a Law-of-preservation-of-energy kind of way (is this how you say in English?) for all the users combined, but not when it comes down to the personal nitty gritty.

Have you never looked at the statistics? My CUMULATIVE ul/dl ratio is negative, overall 30 percent more up loads. Now i didn't mind when it was 1 or 2 ppersent per session but lately it got ridiculous.
So once again: FCUK that!

My ratio is 1:3 (UL:DL) with emule, and very stable....
Just learn to configure emule, your firewall, and use a good release (very important to get the last one)

Your ratio can't be negative genius. If you average all the users on the network the up/down ratio will be 1:1. It simply cannot be anything else. Every byte you download must be uploaded from somewhere and every byte you upload must be downloaded somewhere.

Sorry, I'll refrain from being sarcastic, and come out to say: YOU ARE REALLY STUPID, DUMBASS!!! And you can't read as well. I've already made your point in my previous post.
MY ratio is too, negative, and if you don't understand that you are even dumber than dubya bush's and quale's offspring ... ;)


I'll help you: your statement would've made some sense if you'd skipped the possesive pronoun ... Oh sorry, you can't understand grammar?

Umm, Sorry, but I have to agree with BigWilly (for once - :P). Your ratio CANNOT be negative in whatever sense you make of it. And about the stupid part, although I don't agree with BigWilly on most things, he is not stupid (well maybe a little - :P), he is quite intelligent on particular issues, such as this one.

He was intelligent enough to make it through Yale and be elected, so as far as I'm concerned the only people "dumber than dubya bush's and quale's offspring" are people making such comments, especially if they thought that quale was dubya's VP.

You shouldn't mouth off about grammar if you make mistakes in your own post.

The DL amount is positive, the UL amount also, and the ratio is obviously positive.
