The TrustyFiles File-Sharing Challenge

Postby SlyckTom » Wed Jan 26, 2005 11:42 am

Whether declairing the great Internet copyright wars over or dazzeling the P2P community with its abilities, TrustyFiles is at it again. In a press release issued today, TrustyFiles has challenged all P2P developers to match its ability to find and download various file-sharing media.

"RazorPop, Inc. today announced the release of TrustyFiles 2.4 High Performance File Sharing. TrustyFiles issued a challenge to all P2P (Peer to Peer) files sharing users to compare search and download results and packaging."

"The results speak for themselves," said Marc Freedman, RazorPop founder and CEO. "I queued 100 files for download and consistently had 10-15 video and music files simultaneously downloading for hours. That's a magnitude beyond our previous best and the rest of the industry. TrustyFiles truly is High Performance File Sharing software."

TrustyFiles is a multi-network P2P client that connects to not one, not two, but five file-sharing networks. These networks include FastTrack, Gnutella, Gnutella2, BitTorrent and other TrustyFiles individuals. Considering the amount of networks TrustyFiles is able to search and download from, it would be difficult for singular network clients such as LimeWire to compete, or even accept, such a challenge. This is like a Boeing 747 challenging a Cessna 172 to a race across the United States.

TrustyFiles, owned by RazorPop has remained a dubious member of the file-sharing community (and a member of the <a href=http://www.dcia.info target="_blank">DCIA</a>.) While multi-network clients are interesting, they have often been criticized for not properly implementing the relevant networking protocol. For example, multi-network clients tend to not include supernode support. This could, and does, put a strain on existing supernodes that have to carry additional weight.

Never-the-less, say what you will about TrustyFiles - at least they do not include Cydoor.

here is the press release:

TrustyFiles 2.4 Issues P2P File Sharing Challenge
Can your software match our results and packaging? Major file
sharing software network upgrade increases downloads by a
magnitude and comes without bundled software.

DALLAS, USA, January 26, 2005 - RazorPop, Inc. today
announced the release of TrustyFiles 2.4 High Performance File
Sharing. TrustyFiles issued a challenge to all P2P (Peer to
Peer) files sharing users to compare search and download
results and packaging. Unlike other P2P software, TrustyFiles
doesn't include bundled adware and other annoying and
unwanted software.

The TrustyFiles 2.4 update focused on rewriting and tuning the
network core for maximum performance. The software is the
result of several man-years of development.

"The results speak for themselves," said Marc Freedman,
RazorPop founder and CEO. "I queued 100 files for download
and consistently had 10-15 video and music files simultaneously
downloading for hours. That's a magnitude beyond our previous
best and the rest of the industry. TrustyFiles truly is High
Performance File Sharing software."

RazorPop's TrustyFiles is the industry's leading multiple P2P
network software. TrustyFiles features simultaneous download
of the same file over Kazaa, Gnutella, and Gnutella 2 P2P
networks, and the Internet. TrustyFiles searches and downloads
hundreds of millions of files over the Kazaa/Fast Track, Gnutella,
Gnutella 2, and Bit Torrent P2P file sharing networks.
TrustyFiles is FREE with NO spyware and NO additional bundled
software and can be downloaded at http://www.TrustyFiles.com.

TrustyFiles is three products in one. With Public File Sharing,
search TrustyFiles, Kazaa, Grokster, Morpheus, Limewire,
Bearshare, Shareaza, and other Fast Track, Gnutella, Gnutella2
and Bit Torrent network users. Share your favorite files and
searches with friends when you run TrustyFiles in Personal File
Sharing mode. If you're a business user or have confidential
files, use Private File Sharing to restrict access only to users you
invite.

TrustyFiles is a small 1.6MB download. TrustyFiles provides
security through an Internet connection blocklist to protect from
invasive users and virus scanning support to reject infected files.

TrustyFiles High Performance software is optimized for multiple
networks and broadband, dialup, and firewalled users. Its
advanced P2P engine provides simultaneous searches and
downloads with unlimited results and downloads. Other features
include global search results, multi-source downloading, partial
file downloading, multiple sharing directories, file compression,
and support for TrustyLinks, Gnutella Magnet links, Kazaa
sig2dat links, and torrent files.

Are they still violating the GPL/LGPL with their new version?

As for the multi-networking: iMesh, Morpheus, Shareaza, etc. pp. all said at one point that connecting to multiple networks makes them so much better than everything else and where are they today?

Anybody know if you can search for a file on one network and have it download from users on multiple networks? If so, then that would be cool and I'd consider their challenge legit since multi-net P2P progs have been available for a while (mldonkey/mlnet, kceasy and even shareaza).

Is there adware/spyware in this? I did a quick look and it seems like there's just an adbar, which isn't too bad.

The TrustyFiles File-Sharing Challenge
LMFAO

Sounds like
The Pepsi Taste Test Challenge

This sounds no different then a modified Shareaza, or Imesh, as stated above.

100 files in the que list and only 10-15 of them moving at a time? Maybe I'm wrong, but that doesn't sound too impressive to me. I bet for each network TF supports, the "native client" will work better. I'd be very eager to bet that LimeWire can find files better and faster on Gnutella than TF, same holds true for BT and whatever else TF supports.

Does it let you share

Does it let you share also, or simply leeches?

I fail to see why it's a good thing that something downloads for hours. Personally if the download would seem to take over 5 minutes I simply cancel it and look for a faster source.

If they still claim that they wrote the gnutella/g2 and ft code then yes... that is from gnucleus and gift-fasttrack, and tyhe GUI is from gnucleus... I will quote Wayne Rosso, "That Marc Freedman freaks me out, he seems like a coke head...". :D

I would rather mess with fastcrap than look twice at TF. Ashton and Gregorio demonstrate why it should be avoided. Plus the comment about desperation, Ashton most informed people know he is beyond the basic meaning of the word!!

I've tried Trusty Files. Wasn't impressed.

Who are they to call out every other p2p app? :roll:

What a lame press release. (No offense to Tom for the story, of course).

The only people who would be impressed by pathetic lines such as "Our software downloads faster", "Our software connects to more networks", etc, are brainless Kazaa using morons. No doubt this that's the idea, though.

Was this Marc guy the previous CEO for Kazaa Gold?

Experienced file-sharers want hard facts and a proper will to try new software. This is a waste of time, IMO.

He's saying that he had 10-15 dls going on simultaneously at any given time for a few hours (remember, had a queue of 100 files. It's not that the same 10-15 were going for hours).

"I want to be just like SharePro", Freedman expressed to Slyck.

"Our software is up to 50 times more golden than Kazaa Gold, not to mention containing 10 times more horse power than similar animal-themed applications such as eDonkey," claimed Marc, direct from his cue-card.

nice article tom! personaly i like trustyfiles, ok there r better multinetwork clients out there, but TF isn't that bad at all, the only downsides i found r the banner ads and that it has some smaller bugs, but that's all, it's not a leach client, downloads r "fast" and i'm able to get what i want, but i prefere soulseek over it ;)

ToM,
I'm in the Library at my college and I actually laughed out loud at your quotes.


I enjoyed the article very much, but I agree with others. Seriously what kind of joke is that press release? But I suppose it's not aimed at our demographic (informed p2p'ers)

Simply put, SlyckTom is a damn good writer. Yet the content of this story deserves to be savaged. That being seperated all those in favor of sending TF into the toilet say "aye".

@ Mushroom

Yes ...correct...I was mainly talking about the ones that come with the installer; which does include BT..but as a plugin...The others you must search for though. I'm also not sure about supernode support though they can combine data from all networks an also upload so they are not leecher plugins.

The bottom line is that TrustyFiles (RazorPop) lied to us. :evil:
If you can't trust TrustyFiles, who can you trust? :lol:
