eXeem Released

Postby SlyckTom » Fri Jan 21, 2005 2:00 pm

Almost every BitTorrent fan knows that about SuprNova's untimely fate. The closure of SuprNova brought about widespread panic to those who depended on this Torrent listing site for their daily fixing of media. However, much like the demise of Napster or AudioGalaxy, this would prove to be a mere bump in the proverbial road as alternative Torrent sites filled the gaps left behind.

In the weeks that followed, information was leaked regarding an experimental P2P client named eXeem. According to reliable sources at the time (which Sloncek would confirm), the project was an attempt to decentralize BitTorrent. Although admittedly no longer BitTorrent, it would incorporate many of its attributes, such as swarmed downloading and the reliance of uploaders.

Now, after a little over a month of speculation, ridicule, bewilderment, suspicion, anxiety and forward-looking, the time of eXeem is now upon us. So far, the preliminary reaction from the P2P community has ranged from excitement over the new technology, to suspicion from the hard core enclave. The addition of Cydoor has many questioning not only the intentions, but the future success of eXeem.

Despite the existence of Cydoor, which SuprNova administrator Sloncek contend is not harmful to the individual’s privacy, the pomp and circumstance surrounding this release is sure to grant initial success. The private beta has already been successful, despite Cydoor’s accompaniment, with well over 2,000 testers. In addition, beta testers have remarked about the resourcefulness of the network.

Keep in mind eXeem is still in beta, and that additional kinks still need to be worked out. Although network failure is not anticipated, eXeem will go through some awkward stages in the days and weeks to come.

Now everyone can try it for real instead of bashing it before it even comes out.

I'll admit my expectations are kind of low, but I'm going to give it an honest try.

Funkadelic. Now all I need is for eXeem Lite to catch up.

Oh, and you might wanna fix that link Tom - it doesn't show in the actual article.
[code:1]char str[20];
scanf("%19s", &str);
if (!strcmpi(str, "Hello, world!"))
printf("Hello, programmer.\n");[/code:1]

well over 2000 users

I don't think I've ever seen 2000 users online. Right now theres 1993.

I like it. Its a slim torrent client in c++. The network can transfer folders. The comments and voteing system will cut down on fakes.
I'm not worried about cydoor. It's not like I'll be useing the browser in eXeem so I'll hardly ever see the adds.

Anyone want to try out the eXeem links?, my black green skin,

there are individual songs on it--wonder how long before they are all fake, and rated highly by the fakers?

just another crappy kazaa clone

(p.s. that was the lite version, as i wouldn't trust sloncek at all)

If you have download problems ( due to server overload) can use our bittorrent tracker at p2pforum.it, here is exeem.torrent
> http://www.p2pforum.it/forum/showthread.php?t=25330
Good download!

How serious is this "talking about" because if implemented it could be a very big improvement. Also, if implemented would he be creating a separate anonymous network using tor and the users connected or using the already implemented network? The reason why I ask is they seem to have been negative in the past about using the majority of their traffic for p2p.
