Exeem arrives

Tonight at 9pm i attempted to join the Suprnova Radio channel as i have found that a big announcement was going to be made. I set my alarm and attempted to join but got blocked as it was totally full. Also the IRC chat servers for Suprnova was full too. Via the chat window at Lokitorrent i managed to get the gist of what was being said. Sloncek, the creator of Suprnova has taken "a job" as a reprasentative and consultant of a company providing a new program called Exeem. The Exeem program is best described as a cross between Kazaa and Bittorrent. It uses a similar search style interface as Kazaa but uses Bittorrent technology to provide the file transfers. Like Kazaa, eDonkey and other such P2P networks, this means that there will no longer be a centralised database to connect to (such as suprnova.org) which means that it is harder (or impossible) to track and prosecute anyone as everyone is part of the network rather than a single point of access. From tonights interview, Sloncek also described a feature called "Magnet Links" which will be accessible from a website and will link directly to the Exeem program. This means that a website can still have links to new files posted onto the Exeem network which will open the program and download the file - but the site will not actually store the information anywhere - therefore not making the website open to prosecution. Other P2P programs already have this functionality and it provides links to verified files on the networks - which is excellent. The Exeem program is still in testing but Sloncek hopes to have it available to download within the next few weeks from http://www.exeem.com. The program will be free but will be supported by adverts which i assume will be shown at the bottom of the screen in some way. If you are really that bothered... here is a link to an MP3 of the interview which is where i got all the info: http://torrentspy.com/search.asp?mode=torrentdetails&id=116369 So, to sum up. We are going back to the days of using programs like Kazaa, but with good websites with data of good files and a better method of transferring the files to you. It all looks good. Watch the Suprnova.org and exeem.com in the next few weeks.
