WinMx World News / Re: Can You hear A Pin Drop ?
« Last post by GhostShip on July 07, 2019, 01:07:20 pm »
I think your missing something important Stripes, whilst you may have the tools to continue the fight you may not have the wish to, apathy and boredom lead folks to look elsewhere for excitement, the instant gratification generation are too busy consuming to put in any effort to produce anything new, thats if they have the attention span  :lol:

I know you personally take the time to take part in this community but the point of this topic was simply to highlight that we all need to undertake that same role to keep the community vibrant and self refreshing, if folks post ideas, thoughts and tangible items that others may find worthy of their input the community thrives, conversely if we all stay silent or rely on one or two folks to make the running we are in effect creating a future that leads no-where.

I agree strongly with your further point btw regarding just who will take care of business in the long term once we all get called to pastures new upstairs :death:

I like to think so Wonderer  :D

It seems to me that theres a space for private chatting and semi public discussion as well as having the ability to share information and created works of your own with interested folks. relying on someones server based p2p network or social media web server to deliver all the material hollywood produces is very much a different scene from what goes on here, folks who use such servers are "consumers", most of the folks using winmx are" producers"  in that we all have something to bring to the table and do so.

Technological fads and fashions come and go but friendship lasts a lot longer and this network has created more friendships that I can count,  I agree strongly with your further point btw regarding just who will take care of business in the long term once we all get called to pastures new upstairs :death:

I dont know the answer for sure ,but the question is very relevant.

what worries me, racing to the age of 70 and time seems to run faster every year, is who will take our "jobs"
many of the new generations will not know the feeling of victory when you after many hours finished downloading 650 Mb and could look at the movie you liked.
These days you download 2.5 Gb in 15 minutes when you are slow.
will the new generation still want to continue what we are doing ...

The sad side of the story is that when Datanet1 used to connect the big mainframes over the world for data transfer and some clever minds saw the big advantage of sharing knowledge in big databases accessible by all, it was meant to be free accessible with no restrictions and some of us may still remember the bulletin boards.
The internet browser were nothing more than a user interface to give easy access to intranet of companies that were wanting to share their knowledge.
The intention to openly share to all did not last very long :(

WinMx World News / Justice At Last - P2P Fraud Lawyer Jailed
« Last post by GhostShip on June 18, 2019, 05:33:09 pm »
Very good news folks.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-48662813

Quote
An American lawyer who ran an x-rated online fraud scheme has been jailed for 14 years.
Paul Hansmeier shared copies of pornographic films online and then sued people who downloaded them, for copyright infringement.
Victims were told to pay a $3000 (£2,383) "settlement fee" to avoid further legal action. The scheme is believed to have raised about $3m for Hansmeier and his accomplice over a three-year period.

While many firms have been employed by film and music makers to prosecute copyright pirates, Hansmeier - via a shell company called Prenda Law he set up to run the scam - owned the rights to the porn movies for which it sought fees.
In addition, Prenda uploaded the films itself to pirate sites and sharing networks, to ensure they were widely stolen.

Later, it made its own pornographic films and also uploaded these, so they would be pirated.
The scheme was unmasked because some victims refused to settle, and decided to fight the copyright claim in court.

Wheres Rossi when you need 100 Smiling faces  :lol: :lol:

I hope this guy is ordered to pay back all of the funds he looted from his victims.

Always the optimist eh lol

I think we have a lot of the problems licked in terms of being able to launch a third party client but not all yet unfortunately, we dont need to be stuck in stone and I am looking towards that time for the ultimate ending of what I can bring to the table, in the mean time it pains me to see so few folks looking to maximise their enjoyment of what we have here, I completely understand times have changed for some folks and they have changed lifestyles or careers that devour much of the time they formally put into this network and that applies to me too but without some dreams or focus we stagnate and so whilst in the long term I see a potential future in the shorter term we need to expand on the overall activity to support other potential roots and branches, not everything needs to be a big job nor should we frown upon smaller projects that deliver value to the userbase, a key component of progress will always be to seek out ideas and match those to resources, or vice versa.

Thanks for making the time to post btw Stripes, you have been a good source of ideas, knowledge and quality feedback for some time now  8)

considering what a pain it is to get running on the vista+ environment of windows (especially if you want some add-on toys) i dont expect too many new users... the users it has now are going to be who keep it going for as long as they live and/or the win32 api exists (beware windows 10S) ... winmx is the p2p retirement home...
