Or better still a committee  :lol:

Nice to see you about again Bluey  8)

We have a mountain of problems at the moment the main one has been zero other developers to bounce ideas off of and that alone slows dev to a crawl and then add to that any research has to be done by the same solo developer along with any testing and its hard to find anyone to help with that either and I have tried to drag a few folks into the project, it seems all anyone wants is the src code to play with and theres little wish to aid the community and a diminishing pool of folks whom have both the time and the will to do so,  I keep things ticking over and progress is made but theres no substitute for a professional developer to guide the way when theres a problem thats non obvious to resolve, that alone hold us up and its a scenario we have faced since day 1 of the project, progress has been made and will continue to be made but at a slow rate given the real life commitments I have and the lack of any further support from within the wider community, all that said however we are in a better place than some years ago in terms of being able to stand on our own two feet.

OurMx is at beta 3 atm and its still being worked on, I am rather concerned however that you havent really paid much attention to Fopnu otherwise you wouldnt say it didnt take long to create, the developer states its 2 years of work, and as anyone with eyes can see most of it is taken from Tixati so we can say its actually a tad longer in the tooth from a heavily experienced programmer, I mention this so you may be able to comprehend the difference between OurMx and Fopnu and why one has a full time developer and the other does not..

When we have more folks working on OurMx or indeed any other community client project then I will be the first to congratulate them but when theres few folks wnting to do anything in the community bar whine about time-scales and what they want out of  WMW when they have never put anything themselves into the pot leaves me more than confused, are such people capable of figuring anything out even when told in simple terms ?

What happened to OURMX, did you finally admit defeat after almost a decade?

FOPNU didn't take long to produce.

According to security analyst Jeffrey Carr, use of ICQ may cause security problems because it was purchased by Russian investment company Digital Sky Technologies. ICQ has fallen out of fashion in the US and the UK, but it remains popular in Eastern Europe and Russia. Carr says the new ownership may be used by Russia's powerful secret service, the FSB (formerly the KGB) since Russian law requires ICQ to open its logs whenever they want.

using software owned by Russian companies in general seems to be a major security risk...

may be a good idea to do an audit of all the software on ones own system?

Recently there have been some allegations of collusion with Russian state security aimed at Kapersky AV users.

Israeli spies looked on as Russian hackers breached Kaspersky cyber-security software two years ago, US media report.
The Russians were allegedly attempting to gather data on US intelligence programs, according to the New York Times and Washington Post.
Israeli agents made the discovery after breaching the software themselves.
Kaspersky has said it was neither involved in nor aware of the situation and denies collusion with authorities.

Last month, the US government decided to stop using the Russian firm's software on its computers.
The Israelis are said to have notified the US, which led to the ban on Kaspersky programs.

I cant see why it took so long for Israel to notify the US if this intrusion was genuine, that alone makes me question the rest of the tale, most of us where aware of the recent advice given to US Govt employees to stop using Kapersky so why the delay ????

I smell a rat here but to be on the safe side folks use something thats neither Russian nor Israeli for your protection as both sides seem to feel its ok to spy on folks and steal private data with impunity and that is an attitude that should never be rewarded.
