Things have gone quiet for some time now. Here is an update on how things are at mDd.
We developed different approach to record serverdemos more efficiently. Now they are not depending on the client's snaps rate, anymore. Unfortunately this leads to a bigger file size.

We noticed that servers tend to crash a lot lately. They crash due to a problem in the module threading system. It's not easy to fix, this might take a while. The whole record system has to be rewritten anyway.

chicken and me both work 50+ hours on our day jobs. There is not much time left for mDd and defrag :(

    Last time new staff members briefly came to question, I recall you saying something about not being able to trust anyone. yotoon offered coding help.

    Maybe that working in a more open manner and making this a true FLOSS project would attract more people... at least put a clear statement about what you're doing, where the sources can be fetched and what kind of help would be welcome

    Usually things like this are kept private to avoid cheating. It would be so easy to cheat if the defrag source was released, and that's also why I doubt hk or anyone would want people other than themselves working on the servers and database and all that. I doubt they would disregard any offers for the site, though, since there's not a whole lot that can be compromised there.

    Actually, I can't think of somethnig that we could release that would lead to more cheating. As long as there are demos I don't see a problem. The code however is a mess and we are currently in a state of rewriteing it once more. It came a long way and now we approach things differently. When it's cleaned, I see no reason to not release it. We have to duscuss that internally, though. So no promises here.

    ^1K^6itten^1I^6gnition^7, we are not developing defrag. We don't have the defrag source code. All we do is put hacks on fixes on hacks on klutches in our proxymod.

    I know. It was just an example.

    I'm still interested in helping/coding the website and I don't mind coding it from scratch either. I just want this community to stay alive as long as possible. I really do. :)
