Well, overall I've been pleased with gnump3d. The primary reason I'm changing
is due to security. According to the author he totally removed the password
method of protection because it is supposedly terribly flawed. The only mode
of access restriction right now is IP based. The trouble is I want password
based authentication for when I am out and about. I could add the IP addresses
of each place I am at but that would give anyone there access which I don't
want. I don't like the idea of just anyone in all of IQE being able to suck
down my music.
I could just use the older release that supports passwords but I figure if the
thing was flawed enough to totally remove then it's probably as good as
useless. There for I should move on to something else.
It's unfortunate because I actually like gnump3d. It's simple, fast, and does
exactly what I need.
The primary requisite for any new tax law is for it to exempt enough
voters to win the next election.
