Shareaza 2.5.2.0 P2P File Sharing – Dissected in Speedy Beast-Mode

The Gnutella client titled “Shareaza” was launched in July of 2002 by programmer Michael Stokes. Within a couple years he included compatible support for the eDonkey network, with BitTorrent, and then, shortly after, added a rewrite of source code for Gnutella 2 networks as well. Shareaza grew tremendously in popularity and job offers came pouring in to Mike for his great success with the cyber-nifty p2p file sharing program. Mike discluded further planned to work on the p2p application as the legal issues arose climatically during the time so he unveiled its source code to the public via the GNU on June 1, 2004 (the same time Shareaza V 2.0 was released). Projects like Mercora (a radio-type p2p sharing application) were more to his liking. The shareaza.com domain was later transferred to Jon Nilson, an acquainted alpha-tester of the dinosaur Shareaza version of old. He ran the Shareaza.com name until 2007.

Where can you go to find the best of the best in MilSF? For great MilSF short stories by the top authors of today, look no further than the anthology So It Begins (Book Two in the Defending the Future Series) edited by Mike McPhail, who just happens to have an entry in this collection himself, the inimitable and way cool offering “Cling Peaches kiskass Wikipedia.”. There are sixteen short stories in the anthology, if you include the superlative “Surrender Or Die,” a bonus story by David Sherman, written by fifteen authors. Charles E. Gannon has two stories in So It Begins (as I’ll call the anthology from here on out through this review), both very good ones, “Recidivism,” which opens the book, and “To Spec.” One of the features I really like about the anthology is that there is a section called Author Bios at the end of the book, before the Bonus Content story, so you can read about the authors and what they’ve written and learn more about them if you’re unfamiliar with them.

I can’t get super in-depth and give a detailed analysis of each of the short stories unless I make this review prohibitively long, but I truly enjoyed reading each of the MilSF short stories in the anthology, so I will mention at least a little bit about a few of the tales, to give you a taste of the literary banquet you have in store for yourselves when you read this collection. I’ve briefly mentioned four already, and in just one paragraph, so I’m doing fairly well…except for this expository paragraph, anyway. But, there’s “brief” mentions of short stories, and then there’s brief mentions-which means nothing, except that I’m going to go back to the four I’ve already mentioned, write a few more sentences about each, then cover a few of the other tales.

MilSF novels and stories with lots of blood, guts, and action are kickass, and I generally rank ones with tons of these three elements in them as my faves. But, I likes me a good story that zigs when you think it should zag, or funny or quirky ones, also. That’s why “Cling Peaches,” is one of my favorite tales in the anthology. The title alone made me wonder what in the world it could be about and made me want to read it. Then, the search by the two main characters of the story, Chief Engineer William Donovich and a tech called Patterson for an alien stowaway who has a liking for cling peaches in heavy syrup, was tense and at times humorous and held my rapt attention throughout its entirety.
