[REBOL] Re: ALTME: First group of answers ... - Great

From: gordon::raboud::ca at: 22-Nov-2002 15:15

Hi Reichart; Okay, now I'm excited. I do understand that there will be a 'non-client' server version of AltME available for purchase as well as a professional version and other 'additions'. This is great and I don't mind paying a reasonable fee for software. Reasonable does depend on the use of course. As a wild guess as to what is reasonable for me =96 perhaps something like McAfee where they charge $29.95 US per year for personal use and small businesses, (less than 10 employees?), which includes updates for that year. This would move the program off of your server and onto servers of our choice. The benefit I see is that your server may get clogged with 1000's of queries. (The AltME program does seem to go looking someplace for the World server names). I would like to use it to keep in touch with my clients. I usually only handle e-mail once per day, don't like the 'free' newsgroups that spam you with ads 10 times per second, and although I have ICQ installed, I only run it when needed because I don't like the spam on ICQ neither. This really looks like we will be able to set up Worlds for the Edmonton Amiga users group, the Animation group, the Video Toaster users, the Schools, strictly family, Fantastic. I'm also excited that something will be without charge and easy to download and install, so that we can get other people to use it. So yes, I am happy on how you plan to keep the product free. This actually has a chance of widespread use. On the Linksys router, although I forwarded ports 5400-5409, I forgot to forward port 5500 as per instruction on the AltME web site. That could be why no one could get through. I bypassed the Linksys router and just left ZoneAlarm and McAfee running for my protection. Wow, do I ever get a lot of hits that the firewall in the router blocks! (Every 5 seconds). Well at any rate, someone got through and logging in as guest but I had to reconnect the router so my wife could access the internet from her computer. As far as nothing is free; well I guess some things are free to some people because someone else has paid the price for you. AltME is free to us because others have paid the price in time and effort to develop it. There are many people who can enjoy a walk on the beach because their grandfather paid the price for their freedom with his blood spilled on those same beaches. We are reminded of that fact, and rightly so, every November 11. Thanks for AltME! Yours Truly Gordon Raboud
