Just weeks after legal attacks crippled the popular BitTorrent file-swapping community, an underground programmer from its ranks has stepped forward to announce new software designed to withstand future onslaughts from Hollywood. By John Borland CNET News.com January 5, 2005, 4:00 AM PT Dubbed Exeem, the software has already been distributed in a closed beta, or early test format, by the creators of the SuprNova.org Web site, which was until late last month the most popular hub for the BitTorrent file-swapping community. Last week, the head of that now-defunct site, a man known as "Sloncek," officially announced the Exeem project in an interview on the NovaStream Webcasting network. He said that it would be a modified version of the popular BitTorrent technology, but transformed into a decentralized, searchable network similar to Kazaa or eDonkey. Reports from some beta testers are now beginning to come in, as the private testing nears its end.

ahaha that's great. fighting fascism is cool. :thumbsup: There's alledgedly a new strain of BT as well in the works.

More laws rarely make one safer. Pirating is a crime, yes. But criminalizing a technology is down right stupid. It's right up there with unconstitutional restriction of firearm ownership in the US.

I tend to agree that self-determined autocratic rule dampens the spirit of open source development
by the majority of computer literate people world-wide.

Some laws are just.
Just making rules is unjust.
Interpreting rules is conflictatory and further divides the infancy of the Internet.
Internet as we know it is a fraction of my age, for instance.
Laws & conflicts are as old as the hills.

Public domain is a reality.
Proprietory software is too.
I say keep developing
I was born in a democracy.
Majority rules.
Money, politics & religion are always devisive factors.

Since the dawn of man, it appears.
Woman, too.

Be good.
Lots of others are trying to, also.

Now, where is that invision mod, smashmonkey?

I'm working on it.. ;)

Well I agree with two thirds of that. The latter of the three in purity is never motivated by greed. The first two tend towards self service, whereas the latter often seeks to serve others.


remember: Extreme virtue is never a vice.

vice-versa.

Pirating is a crime, yes. But criminalizing a technology is down right stupid.


How may I ask can u have it both ways? If pirating is a crime. Then the technology that one uses to commit the "crime" of ( pirating) should as well be a crime also. When one illegally file swaps the ways and means they use are criminal.

But only in the case of pirating. I file swap personal info. at times amongst friends and family. I do not steal pirated copies of movies or music. So I am not a criminal. Those that do are.

I can own a gun for protection or hunting. I do not go out and commit murder. So I am not a criminal. Those that do are criminals. And should not be allowed to have a gun. Ever!
