What a WASTE

By Mark Boudreau 01 Jun 2003

Nullsoft, makers of the handy little mp3 program Winamp, released a pretty neat secure p2p/im client for a small secure network on Wednesday. They called it WASTE. AOL, who owns Nullsoft, didn’t like the legal liability that this application created, so they had Nullsoft pull the plug.

<p>Luckily, the <span class="caps">WASTE</span> site was <a href="http://www.freedomware.org/waste/index.html">mirrored</a>. I think it&#8217;s worth checking out. The source is available for anyone that wants to pick up the slack.</p>
