GreyLink DC++ dicsussion

Since I have no idea how do make threads, this is a start of the Greylink DC++ discussion that ensued in another thread. I've copied the texts and put them in a quote block below.

for me it was 4 years of dedicated work and for others its been more then 10 years so its not really nice to shove that banner along with hyping a client that basically ripped off our project

GL is miles ahead.I think its disrespectful to the open source community to promote GreylinkWith regards to open source developers, if you have enough spare time, it would be helpful to start using GL and loaning its best features. At least, there must be clear understanding that GreyLink features must be ripped off. It's better than denying a progress that GreyLink has brought.time and effort into everything Greylink just stole and redistribute
I don't know about other countries, but in Russia there is a plague called torrents. In order to fight with them, we need something that matters. We can't fight with a dead fish against a sword. Client application must be fully featured, and most foreign (I mean, foreign from the point of view of Russians) DC++ mods stuck in 2005. Denying GreyLink equals to promoting torrents. I hate torrents so I'd better be with GreyLink until replacement will arise.
There should be no problem to restore a damaged file given a damaged file and a magnet link to a proper one. Sublists must be supported in a way compatible to GreyLink because GreyLink popularized them first. I have personally contributed to dcls design by proposing a recursive sublist idea. GreyLink has a gender setting and displays gender to left of the nick. In many ways, GL is attractive to both advanced and normal users.I don't know what to say. I want progress to happen even faster, and instead I hear some ownage claims that I don't want to be involved into. I didn't want to hurt anybody's feelings. After all, everybody rips your project. Nobody uses vanilla DC++. I've been in DC++ since 2005 and I haven't seen people using vanilla DC++ with only a few exclusions that were unaware of something other.ripped off our project
With regards to ontopic, I've failed to make a traffic rip using CDM debugger. An application hangs probably due to very long string operation (155Kb). So I've dumped the traffic using the tcpdump. The traffic is in the tcpdump format, with Level 3 headers interleaved with TCP data. However, using FAR Manager it is possible to inspect most details.

Also, your comment:With regards to ontopic, I've failed to make a traffic rip using CDM debugger. An application hangs probably due to very long string operation (155Kb)
I don't think that it's an evidence of perfect client.

Code: Select all
Added option "Show icon in front of nick sex chat" (OCTAGRAM)
tell em we want the source and we want it now!
they are violating apexdc++ strongdc++ and dc++ and the time and effort that BM, Crise and the DC++ Crew should be acknowledged in proper to the licensing terms of the sourcecode
