Re: jfw and lime wire

Yeah, I don't like the adware either and that's why I'm considering upgrading 
to the Pro version which supposedly will remove all adware.  But first I'm 
going to research it a little more.  I'm hesitant to pay money for software 
like this since I got burned when I bought the Pro version of Limewire many 
years ago.  Limewire, believe it or not, actually worked with Jaws once upon a 
time.  Then they started making radical updates to the software that made the 
software useless to Jaws users.  I'd hate to pay money again for something like 
Ares and then have it become unusable all of a sudden.  I suppose there is no 
real way to guarantee this won't happen.  But I at least want to make sure 
there are no other problems with it.

  I'm sorry , I asumed the client was built off the ares source code. I've 
found now that it's not, and frankly don't know what the ares people have to 
complain about.
  It seems to give good results, but as soon as you remove the 
addware/spyware/whatever you call it, the program doesn't work.
  the closest program to this based on UI is
  http://www.filepipe.org
  Does basicly the same thing, although it's not as accessible.
  It's not a bad program IMO but the spyware isn't worth it,

    Hi Brandon,

    I went ahead and tried out the Ares Galaxy client that is found on the site 
you listed and I have to say I didn't like it very much.  You can use Jaws with 
it but it's very awkward and not as accessible as I would like.  I found that 
Jaws worked much better with Ares P2P.  While it's true that Ares is an open 
source project and that it is generally free, open source does not prevent 
someone from making modifications to the software and reselling it if they 
wish. You only have to look as far as Linux to see proof of this. The only 
requirement is that the individual selling their particular modified version 
make their source code available to the open source community/public.  I did 
some searches on Google and some of the other popular P2P oriented web 
magazines and I haven't found any complaints about Aresp2p.net, the makers of 
Ares P2P, other than the complaints described on the site you listed.  I think 
the main gripe is that aresp2p.net charges for their client and these people 
don't like that very much.  I'll keep researching it though but so far from 
what I can tell, I would have to say that I differ with your opinion that Ares 
P2P is a scam.  If they made an Ares Galaxy client that was a little more Jaws 
friendly, I'd be more than happy to use it.  

    Mike

      ares2p.net is a scam.
      It uses an open source program
      http://www.aresgalaxy.org
      I wouldn't support them.

          Hi,

          I've found an excellent alternative to programs like Limewire and 
Kazaa that works fantastic with Jaws.  The application is extremely fastand 
won't bog down your system.  You also get extremely fast download speeds.  It's 
called Ares and can be found at http://www.aresp2p.net.  There are some steps 
you have to take to make it work if you're using Windows XP with SP2 loaded on 
it but it's nothing difficult. The two steps that have to be taken are very 
simple and straight-forward.  The only drawback is that the basic version of 
Ares installs some adware but if you purchase the upgrade, you won't have any 
of the adware. I'm intending to purchase the upgrade soon.  For me, it would be 
well worth it.

          Mike

              Hi listers, a few weeks ago I remember someone out here asking 
about scripts for jfw and lime wire.  I have not heard anything any more post 
regarding the matter, although I am very interested in knowing the answer as to 
if there any scripts or if any one can get lime wire to work with jfw.  Also 
the person who asked the original question mentioned getting someone to write 
scripts for it.  I would be interested in knowing if he got a reply to that 
question as I would be interested in getting a copy of scripts or talking to 
who ever might be able to take on the script writing project.  I am very 
interested in being able to download music files, audio books, and movies from 
the net and don't know of a good working program that I could use with jaws.  I 
at one time was using winmx with scripts, but I guess winmix isn't working any 
more.  If any one can shed light on this matter please reply.  If you desire my 
private email can provide that so as the list does not get caught up with 
messages regarding my request.
