p2p news / p2pnet:- Shareaza fan Tom `Higgy` Higginson has finished the script he’s been writing to let people access p2pnet on mobile devices.
Actually, it`s been finished for a while now. But for reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with Higgy, we haven`t been able to post it.
He’d been accessing p2pnet.net through his phone using a Google service that converts web pages into WML. But, Obviously this doesn’t produce the best output for browsing using something with a screen the size of a passport photo
No Kidding. Heh
However, thanks to Higgy, you can now tap into p2pnet anytime, anywhere.
Here`s the url http://p2pnet.net/index-wml.php. Just enter it into your phone, remembering to save it as a bookmark ; )
We normally use black-and-white for people pix but in Higgy`s case, we had to make an exception, for obvious reasons : )
Anyone who uses WAP regularly should be able to do that much without any trouble, says Higgy, who`s been programming for about ten years, starting with BASIC, when I was around seven and PHP/MySQL about two-three years ago”.
He`s been hooked on p2p since he first heard about Napster —- about three months before it was finally shut down.
And as we mentioned earlier, Higgy also helps out on open source Shareaza, as does p2pnet`s development manager, Alex H. Higgy, now a member of the fast-expanding (but wholly unpaid ; ) p2pnet tech team, Alex and p2pnet tech manager Sixto Luis Santos will be working together to turn a concept Alex came up with into hard reality.
It`ll be open source micro-payment system that’ll go out into the world as P2Pay.
Stay tuned for that, or go here for Alex’s write-up on his idea.
