the total saving of browse lists and usernames, including hash.
I always thought that the persistent leech had changed his username or changed his/her numbers preceding his hash numbers. I didn't think it really possible for them to get around ignore through a network refresh
For years I have had issues with WinMX where if I crash, lose connectivity or whatever... I cannot make user names nor a list of browsed files persistant. Unless I do something like prt screen and save an image. lol The 'excuse' as I call it that ive heard over and over again is that usernames are not forever, file lists are not forever, room names are not forever. Therefore, the instant you close (or crash) WinMX, all that info vanishes. You cannot find it again unless search happens to be working, which is rare these days. During the last period of normal function on WinMX when the hackers (erm ya know who I mean) lost the ability to mess it all up for an entire 2 days, I browsed everyone I could with files I wanted. After the flooding resumed I would queue using the same lists of files, with the same old usernames. I did not crash so all of that is still available on my WinMX. I have noticed that the vast majority of the time, these people who I have a browse open on do not crash, vanish, move to mars or otherwise disappear from the world. I think it would be nice if WinMX were altered to allow the total saving of browse lists and usernames, including hash. Just because I may crash or reboot, doesnt mean that the rest of the planet crashes in sync with me. Kinda idiotic for WinMX as it is, to suddenly go senile and remove all that information. I know, Kev even said himself that all the info is temporary... his defintion of temporary is .000001 nanoseconds. Reality is into the time period of months in some cases. What would be horrible abt it? You click download and the link no lionger exists.... that happens anyway even when we are not being attacked. I will now return to my downloads which are maxing out my isp speed. The same ones that are using the same usernames and hashes that were present b4 the latest flooding attack, several days ago.I cannot think of any other more interesting change to WinMX over the ability to stash and use that information over a crash or reboot. Such as like, oops! my pc froze, reboot it. Run WinMX, right click 'resume' and most everything you were qued on for most usernames, you are instantly queued on again, without messing around with search. Im sure that besides being convenient, it would also cause emotional upset to KM or whatev... is hacking the WPN.
