Hoist the Jolly Roger! Just kidding. AAC will replace my MP3 collection, when I say it does. Considering MP3s play on 90% of the worlds players I'm sticking with MP3. I'm not about to convert 40gigs of MP3s (not all pirated) just to find they will only play on a handful of players. Those of you with hearing as good as a dogs and 10,000 dollar stereo systems may think otherwise.

It's Java... even worse. No wonder it took ages to start it.

It's apparently also encouraging piracy. *All* file sharing apps like this are used for piracy. According to NodeScan: "There are plenty of alternative programs and networks which are better suited to this endeavor." So it's not even a good type of network.

Ogg Vorbis steaming? OGG is not quite a popular format. MP3 is more popular, is about to be replaced by the even better AAC.

Chat? What the hell, 32*32 icons before an user name? I thought 16*16 emoticons were bad.

Instant messaging? Don't we all have AIM, MSN, Excite, Yahoo, Jabber, ICQ? Will this new IM thing be used? I think not.

Remote server adminstration requires you to enter geeky commands. Not exactly user-friendly either, is it?

Yikes.

I'm disappointed.

I downloaded NodeScan and it looked quite promising. When I saw the OS 9 icon in OS X, I knew it would be an app that looks great, but isn't.

- It runs horribly slow. It took me about 20 seconds to start the app (both server and client).
- I couldn't figure out how it worked.
- The user interface is a pain-what the hell did the author do to the great default Mac OS X GUI?

I'm not sure what language this app is coded in. I suspect REALbasic, for several reasons. The GUI has elements that are definitely REALbasic.

There are much better Intranet server solutions than this.
