    Russian site wants to install SW on your computer

    Hi All,

    I get the warning that the russian download site (see link above) wants to install software on my PC when I first reach it. That is in general in the world of safe interneting a no-no. I can not say if what it is trying to install is safe or not, but that is why its a no-no - the user should be informed and be able to make an intelligent choice.

    That being said, is there a location or a way I can download it without the site trying to install software un-asked? Until I know its safe, I can not recommend it to others.

    Regards

    Depositfiles is flippin' annoying. Obviously, Victor alone can't be expected to pay for hosting and server bandwith. But personally, I would love to see a move back to Sourceforge or another well-respected open source site for hosting the Freeship+ repositories and executables.

    in this case www.mediafire.com can be the good solution.. i found it is the best for free sharing sites .. supports resumes and free account and no need to wait for download too..

    We are all using the freeship software. I dont think many among us are paying any amount for the usage of the software. That means the funding available is only from the side of victor. We shouldnt expect to get everything for free, at our comfort. It will be better if we support him to maintain a better website with its own web space to store software, rather than using these mal-websites like rapidshare, depositfiles etc.

    Why not keep a copy of the latest version here on boatdesign.net?

    uncompressed files are just too big

    just to put everybodies mind at ease
    i have been using Freeship for many years and have down loaded it originally 2.65 to my pc and now 3.1 to my laptop
    I have never had problems with spam or viruses
    just follow the prompts carefully and choose your selections so that you get what you want, that way you will be ok

    Thanks for the hard work Freeship and crew

    Since Victor is continuing the development where I left off another and possibly better option would be to revive the freeship project at the sourceforge site which has been dormant since january 2007.
    Of course this would require a commitment of Victor to follow the GPL license (distribution of the source code of every release etc) and also other sourceforge rules.
    Since the sourceforge site is a wel known and trusted site, and already hosts all official releases documentation and tools up till v2.6, and most of all is completely free to use I think this could be a more elegant solution.
    It also has space for a website, so that would be covered as well.
    If Victor agrees we could discuss me handing over my admin rights of the project to him.

    Why is that better than just bundling up his latest effort, zipping it, and posting it in this forum? It could be done now without any further frigging around.

    Cheers,
    Leo.
