    It sounds cool, but I have a PC.

    This is an area that Macs really fall behind in and I'm glad that software is being developed. It sounds real nice.

    (Maybe this should be in software discussion? :confused:)

    :)

    As it reads, it is a modified version of Poisoned... maybe it was improved a bit, maybe it has spyware now... no changes are listed, as I can see..

    This site has a full change log, yes it has a more up to date code base and about 20 methods that are not in poisoned. The plugins and giFT core are also more receent. The Poisoned team is not realeasing very fast at all. NO SPYWARE or ADWARE or ANYTHING ELSE.

    you understand that... um You could send them this?

    You could become a devolper w/ them?

    Hello, why have 2 applications when one spawned from the other?

    :confused:

    Code has been sent to rizzi(the lead). They are slow at implementing everything so I am powerbuilding(free time) and emailing rizzi fixes and code and the mods. Oh and why have 2, because mine is more up to spec and has more options, people want uptodate software.

    i work on poisoned, i am a developer. Rizzi is very busy right now. What you SHOULD have done is come to the irc developers channel. We would have filled you in and given you developer CVS access.

    You shouldnt have 2 apps. There should be one. You would add those changes to the regular poisoned and you would get your name in the about box. But i guess the negative to that is you wouldnt be able to solicit donations for yourself and con people out of their money.

    Accepting donations and con-ing people are two totally different things.

    ok, so can I be apart of the team. Also where did you get this donations and coning stuff???

    Thats not even asking, it's just saying, and wheres the paypal link? NOT! I do this for the coding and nothing more. Anyway like I said let me know if I can be a developer because poisoned is getting rotten with a lack of updates....

    come to the irc channel. irc.freenode.net, #poisoned

    its an opensource application for a reason. We WANT our users to help out and contribute.

    and the reason there hasnt been a release is because Rizzi has been away and no one else has the passwords and usernames and such to put up the release. Its very easy to build the new plugins in, as im sure you realized.

    Why is it so bad if two apps are released? This happens with lots of open source stuff, and I don't see a problem. The personal insults@j.ashton were uncalled for IMO.

    While I always do appreciate free efforts to share with others, the choice of the name was a total mistake, bringing up possible confussion with a similarly aimed app called MLNet.

    ML is a programming language, hence mldonkey and mlnet(written in ML), it is NOT MultiNet, it never was.

    Ummm... I doubt that.

    They will add you as a devolper or something, and credit you with your help, but changing the whole name of it... ehh.

    edit: And Mule is already named as you posted.

    We don't have donkey support and I'd rather not people getting confused.

    Who said I was taking one for another. Oh, wait, I guess you are pointing everyone who mistakenly associated both names when downloading your sw to that quote.

    I said it could be misleading, not that I had mistaken one for another. Whatever the technical mumbo behind each one is, both things are related to P2P, and hence it was a wrong name to choose.

    Indeed, but you said you wanted the name to change into "

    "

    BTW, your working w/ poisoned now so it doesn't even matter.

    Good luck.

    I was refering to emule plus in another context, and yes I am poisoned now so it does not matter... Poisoned will become the number one mac p2p app.

    I know this is pointless, since I guess MultiNet has been EOLed, but I just wanted to point out that I lament you took it the bad way. Of course you can use whatever frigging name you want. I already said I appreciate the efforts you share for free. My point was trying to be that while you shared your app with the intention to help people, giving it a misleading name was not very helpful to those not familiarized into mac p2p which might hear several similar names of completely different things in the same context at once.
