well, it's a month after the unofficial release date... and no new yet :(
to make matters worse, i got a letter from my isp (road runner) bitching that i was using too much upstream bandwidth. does anyone know a good comeback to shut them up? I mean i know it's mine and i pay for it, so why do they care what i do with it?

In the contract you signed for the connection it probably states you won't run a server on it. WinMX is a server. There's no comeback for you. Get a better ISP or limit your uploads.

found a WinMX contact e-mail of sorts

Postby sybesma » Sat Dec 06, 2003 1:22 pm

betatest@winmx.com

I tried a bunch of different possibilities. This is the only one that didn't bounce back as being undeliverable.

I would just like it if Kevin Hearn posted a very short note once or twice a month on the status.

Not too much to ask I don't think. I know he's busy and if he doesn't want to answer the e-mail, he doesn't have to -- but you can't blame us for being hungry and not having any regular news to go on.

According to FrontCode, the latest estimate placed the release of 4.0 "at the end of this year." Since there's only a few more weeks left, I'll be shooting an email over to them to get the latest scoop. If anyone has any questions they would like me to ask them, post them to the thread...maybe I'll make this a Slyck community interview...:)

sounds excellent!

I'm pretty committed to WinMX, having used it for almost 2 years.

If they can make this work with some kind of anonymity for the IP address, this is going to be one of the easiest to use programs like that out there and the usership I think will climb quite a bit from what it used to be.

Looking forward to it.

That's your opinion and I highly respect that. I know many individuals would diagree with me but I've found the FastTrack network to be a much better resource than WinMX & the Opennap servers combined. You might run into "fake" files here and there, but I believe you just need to be intelligent enough to manipulate the FastTrack network through Kazaa Lite to your very own benefit. I manage to be at the level where I get the best out of Kazaa Lite. BTW, a lot of WinMX users lately are migrating to the eDonkey2000 network and I clearly see the reason behind that.

Winmx vs. Kazaa

Postby 2centsworth » Tue Feb 10, 2004 3:45 am

Winmx has much more control and with some expierience can be much faster than kazaa in that you don't waist as much time dldng fakes, virus, and such. What a waist of bw and recources. How fast do you want to dnld fakes. I can usually dnld new rls same day or within 24hrs. I would say that is more than satisfactory. And no bogus filez waisted my time or bw. Learn to manage who and what you share and it is hard to beat with any p2p client. kazaa speed is impressive at first untill u find out it is all junk bogus crap that you have dnlded all day.

I think K.Hearn don't have time to spend on winmx anymore... i remember he first taked about october 2003 as release date.
Now after 4 month... no news in his site, no news here (the interviews are vague when describing development).

Why not to open sources of winmx and release it in gpl?
Slyck, what about ask this in next interview?

The other is SNip who hostes TEEN EXTREME TEEN_AE5F12188F5B

lol
I reported snips home page as abuse and the abuse team @homestead.com said they would look into it.
then all download pages went.

I would like to think it was the abuse report that did it.
But someting has to be done now, uses of the channels are being abused and are leaving.
KM and Snip King aka FoxIE should be leaving on the short bus.

I really hope it was as well, Plyms Bone. People like Snip and KM should be placed under "computer arrest" - never allowed to touch a computer again.

report the abuse

Postby just little 'ol me » Sat Feb 14, 2004 6:41 pm

I think we should all collectively work on getting the IP's of the users using poison on the channels on mx and reporting it to their ISP's.

to start; KM's isp is blueyonder. You can email them here, abuse@blueyonder.co.uk. Will work on getting snips
