On Instant Messaging as (Purely) Peer-to-Peer Clients
I just like to note that whatever the sociopathic programmers say about it, Instant Messaging can be set up as Peer-to-Peer (P2P) clients without a problem! This is how it's done: the P2P is set up as a program that exchanges text (any file, but let's stick to text) and then you make the indentification rule to the IP you're talking too, the IP that you've exchanged on beforehand! IP -> "Your Friend" and IP -> "Yourself". The next thing is to separate what's sent to your friend and what you receive, that is, a separate "summary window is set up for making a summary of the lines/messages that go in and out! Therefore, you get the traditional two-window interface where you enter the messages or add files in the lowest and see the exchange unfold in the upper! Good? Enjoy (private) life (w/o sociopathic God-administrators)!!! Cheers!
