  1. ApexDC++ OP

    real late feedback - zion was last one I used for op'ing. It did detection best, since it has gotten outdated last and wasn't bad as a user client too.
  2. ApexDC.net donates to StrongDC++

    great guys! good idea!
  3. Fake detection profiles

    thank you! Seems to work, though now I need a bunch of op functions, which I do not see... will report to respective place.
  4. Fake detection profiles

    Dear lads and lassies, I need some links to working fake detection profiles. Could someone please provide me with them? Thanks! P.S. I realize we had a topic for this, but searching for it proved to be futile...
  5. Graphics formats update

    Just an idea - why not have Apex use exclusively jpeg 2000 or the very least png for all, themes, graphics etc... Would save some space and, well, the fun of being on the edge -) Not a feature request, since I think this is something more of a point for discussion. P.S. could someone (moderator) fix the aphex to apex in the subj, please ;)
  6. Graphics formats update

    smaller filesize. newer format, meaning there might be more things it can do and there should be a better access to the required sources. Basically same reason as to "why use png if there is tiff or even bmp"...
  7. OP Version Questions

    You'll get it when it is out, don't worry and do not rush it - won't help -)
  8. Graphics formats update

    that's weird, how about jpeg 2000? it should have all the source code and binaries... All major software packages are starting to support it (like Adobe Acrobat for example, or AcdSee)... I mean we still have some bmp even coming with the installation package themes... I realize free space is not an urgent matter anymore... but...
  9. ApexDC++ revealed!

    also an icon for apex needs to be... there... yeah, blue me not likes, grey is okey, last logo could be more elaborate, imho.
  10. World Cup 2006

    <- isn't a soccer fan... <- has no TVset But, guess, it'd be better if Germany wins, since I am in Germany. Many people root for Trinidad... yeah, rite...
  11. Mozilla Firefox 2.0 Alpha 2 (Bon Echo)

    I'd rather us talk useful plugins. I am using: fasterfox adblock plus adblock filterset updater customze google cute menus download statusbar flashgot forecastfox nightly tester tools noscript session manager tab clicking options ui tweaker update notifier and I am on the ffox 2 alpha 2 I suggest you post yours here too so we could all benefit from the selection.
  12. Mozilla Firefox 2.0 Alpha 2 (Bon Echo)

    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/fir...-trunk/?C=M;O=D or here - http://www.philka.ru/comment.php?comment.news.1800 not sure which one is better... it is out for a while already - sort of pre-alpha thing -)
  13. Zion ++ project stopped, p2p banned in France altogether?

    Greg, don't get me wrong - I don't mean users should be faceless. I mean the identity of a user online should not be connected in any way to the users actual location (which ip provides) exactly because of the abuse of privacy violation by the various states and organizations. However, I absolutely agree with users setting up identities and connecting their VR to the RL self as much as they want. Regarding ips - I know how it works, but I believe it might work somehow else too, if even with a giant proxy system of a kind, I frankly do not have a valid solution to exclude ip-like id, but I am sure there might be other ways to replace it. As for private hubs - anonymity of actual users won't hurt at all - you will have login and password there anyway - which is why these hubs are called private.
  14. http://virus27.free.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?t=755 Don't know if anyone is using this client, but it was good for op'ing (and pretty much the only one)... Guy has closed his project because of the ban on any p2p including coding and distributing the client... Can any country's government just decide that sort of thing like that? Practically it seems they can... Shall we talk about it?
  15. Zion ++ project stopped, p2p banned in France altogether?

    Kevo, with freenet - I tried once (since my university has banned all p2p under the threat of expulsion). Jumped in and saw that about 80% of stuff is pedo resources... Not sure it was freenet - something that uses browser rather than it's own client. That aside, I didn't figure out how to download from there before my "give up limit" was used up. (wonder if it really was freenet though). Either way this is not the kind of p2p I imagine. With fibre optics - cables are temporary - think about it - if you can send that stuff through waves, you can max out the data throughput by developing multisource transfer applied to wifi... Greg, I believe ip address is something that can be done with, however it is of course backed up by the authorities. As for anonymity - I don't personally have a major need for it, but I'd rather have it. I can always willingly identify myself to people I need,- so identity is not harmed. As for bad guys having it anonymous - I don't mind - it's their business and it is my business to have antivirs and firewalls against that. If legal system is not catching up with times - I don't want to lag with it. As for total control argument - we are heading there, I believe, but I don't think we'll get there (for every file monitoring argument).
  16. How evil are you?

    nah, I really am the evilest - I am so evil I even lied on the questions that I told to the test I didn't do -)
  17. Mozilla Firefox 2.0 Alpha 2 (Bon Echo)

    Crakter, opera is free by now. Beta 9 is faster than ffox pretty much at anything (personal experience impression), but terribly uncomfy in that it lacks a lot of things (extentions) that I have in my ffox. Now actually to those, who are using ffox 2 alpha - does it make sense to enable fasterfox with it? Also how about FFox 3 - anyone using it?
  18. Zion ++ project stopped, p2p banned in France altogether?

    well, another networks is a possibility - internet is already outdated in many ways, but my guess is that it will follow no sooner than we get wi-fi globally.
  19. Zion ++ project stopped, p2p banned in France altogether?

    Well DC used to be more like a chat to me, but not I don't have time for it anymore, so I am just op'ing a lil here and there... I do not think anonymity is the key either, - I am worried about the legal implication of the file exchange thing, though. Private hubs is a good idea, but if public hubs were to be closed through authorities - next thing they would go for is more private files exchange and this will lead to shrkinging of the scene as well as to mistrust among members of private hubs once some of them get closed and members - busted. To me solution is not in anonymity, but in changing the legal system to be more realistic and people-friendly in respect to p2p (which is at large and issue, since there are many ways to just chat, like irc). As for BW waste - I believe BW is not strictly material and as time goes we will all have high BW internet like we have electricity now (and hopefully it will not be more expensive with time)...
  20. How evil are you?

    You Are 48% Evil You are evil, but you haven't yet mastered the dark side. Fear not though - you are on your way to world domination. How Evil Are You? http://www.blogthings.com/howevilareyouquiz/ as expected...
  21. Zion ++ project stopped, p2p banned in France altogether?

    of course, but maybe the proxy concept should be reinforced in this case - like an advanced version of freenet perhaps. I mean, people need to be pushed to no alternatives to start thinking seriousely of alternatives.
  22. Full foobar support

    Well, much is said in the title. Is it possible to have as much support as for winamp integrated into AphexDC++? Is it needed/wanted? (sorry if was asked already - search didn't find anything to that matter)
  23. Zion ++ project stopped, p2p banned in France altogether?

    Well, it doesn't affect you since p2p is not illegal (or are you French?) - if your provider will be asked to send your address to the local police (or similar) force every time you use p2p filesharing software protocol - this will make a difference for you personally. I am not saying we should all be worried here - I see a problem at some place similar to my own one and I am interested in discussing what ways are out there to prevent this from happening or how to react if it will happen. *skipping the "I'm so cool and I don't give a damn 'bout nothin'" part* They want to stop UL and DL - they want to stop exchange (and that is a common idea of p2p filesharing - exchange and not downloading, which is one-way) of materials that they hold a copyright for. Issues really are 2: - copyright and privacy laws are made ages ago and have not changed significantly with emergence of the Web, where they are largely inaplicable. - big corporations through governments want to maximize profits and are loosing money on p2p, so they want to combat it.

    CraKteR, sorry about the nick - not intentional... -) With killing - I mean realistic solutions.
  25. Zion ++ project stopped, p2p banned in France altogether?

    Caretaker, you are missing the point - it is not about the govts realizing they're doing crap thing, which I see p2p ban as, and so do you. It is about that they - can do it - did it - we can't do jack about stopping it - wtf are we gonna do then? Zlobomir, my thoughts too - wanna have a well-working anonymous p2p client, though I realize they'll just "fix" the laws, so that, for example, "all traffic should be monitored for copyrighted material exchange, and such and such protocols are forbidden to be used under a threat of fine of 6000000 pounds". So really there is little that ones like ourselves can do: protocol should not only be anonymous and secure, it should be stealthy. Plus keep in mind no law will make the multicorporation's spying on you actions illegal - they are the ones lobbying for their interests with governments with their money - not us - fellow internetizens, so practically (not theoretically) government represents their interests and not ours. There is a chance, though that some e-citizen will apply for a govt. position and get support from the masses through online campaign, then, maybe... but who knows...
