For the last 2 years i have been slowly developing p2p software designed specifly for distributed applications. As it is just me performing all the work it is time intensive and i am moving into unfamilier teratory especialy in security and excryption. Features such as virtual filesystems and autmatic routing and connection managment are just a few of the ideas i have for the project. The application will have full scripting macro support and provided plugin support for developing extensions including the ability to perfom complex distributed maths usfull for medical and science research. (The software will be probably be provided freely but i may charge for membership access) This is not just an idea anymore i have a partially working application. Its task is not filesharing though support through vfs is provided actuall distributed applications are the target for this service. ie( Online spreedsheets databas etc)
1) People providing substantial support will not pay for future versions of the software nor any membership fee. (If at all charged) 2) Contnued support will mean perminant access as the developers are the ones providing/running the network (You and me). 3) No promise of pay but if the network does generate an income by charging anual access fees then that will be devided equally to all developers (Pay for websites bandwidth hosting etc) and this should be pretty easy to calculate as each developer will know the mebership count and therefor can estimate what they should have earned. 3) Everthing above is negotiable as the people that are accepted onto the project will also be the people directing its future and making the desisions. 4) I may accept a monetary bid for the software in question but as i would have paid for its development the person would not be entitled to any of the above. And further more the existing software wont be revealed to that person they are to devlope it as guided in future communications. 5) Seriuse entrys only please.
windows XP/2000 for now but should run on windows 95 and up. This will be left to discussions with accepted members as will most other things. This is a visual basic project you need to have vb6 or know how to port vb6 code down and then back up before submiting. This project also relys heavly on scripting as any scripting language usable by the script control may be used however vbscript will primarly be used during devlopment as its easy to port back and forth bettween vb. Most gui components are going to be xml/xsl based so skills in this area will also help when bidding.
