Get rid of "Pictures" as one of the default search types and replace it with "Archive".
at this time the primary system is not fitting into this catagory
however I,m still working on building a clone client for us all to develope further and would welcome more coding support if there are any folks out there interested in joining a team
as some modifications are possible but will need implementing across the entire network and will mean an incompatability exists
Their is a extremly simple way of making winmx's transfers fully encypted. But the problem lies with making it compatible with people not running patched winmx's. Do we really want to split the network in two. Personally i think we should of done it when KM was about. As their was a much larger user base, and to loose a few people while others upgraded wouldnt of been overly major. But it didnt happen. On the basis of starting again. Recreating our own P2P client. Thats not about the winmx code would be a damn site easyer, and bits could be ripped from many diffrent networks, but i dont think it would keep the community spirit. Ive considered Ares too in the past, an im sorry but i hate the damn thing. I trust Winmx, ive been using it for 5 years at least, i think even longer than that, its kept me safe, i think i should repay it by keeping it safe. Yes sentimentality has took over, and deep down i know we need a new client. The whole network protocol has been cracked. Their are a few little niggles we wonder what way round it does it, but you learn that by coding that section. Every single packets type is in writen form and what length and information on where and what it does. But we are lacking a coder. Their is always something being built by someone, but up to now many have found it easyer to show their skill, impress and then just disapear. Their are some very special coders still in around winmx, but life is more important, i have no doubt at all eagle could code a full winmx client, but he is now in education, And that is far more important. Their are many others, i have alot of faith in Emu's work, id like to see him have a crack at adding more winmx stuff to his chat client. I think alot of people think that this task is too difficult, im not saying its going to be easy, but with the help of all of us, and the programmes collected as examples as a guide, i think its very much so within our grasp. Or if kevin hearn is reading this. Cant you see by now we are only wanting to take winmx to the next level. Why not send us your sourcecode, would save us a whole load of messing about, and get WinMX back to its full glory. Without patchs and Moni's needing to be stuck on to get what we want out of it. (I know all that is just a pipe dream now).
