yes i know, but it still work fine,
i've just downloaded it few days before HCL site goes down and all i just want is a license key to use it more than 15 minutes on the 5 pc i've it on :|
on the other hand a new winapp could be done even in php+gtk (but i dont know exactly how it works)
The second part may actually be easier, tho' I'd probably choose Python over PHP (for local applications I find that Python is much faster then PHP...) Really a local client can be done with any language that allow either Curl or URL calls, or sockets (in which case you get to deal with headers and such) For Windows, .Net is made for this, and with a little careful planning, you could actually do both Windows and *nix, due to the mono project.
My problem is that until I got Vista, I generally grumped about Windows stability. I have to give Microsoft one thing, both of the new Vista machines have been awesome, very reliable and not needing to be rebooted ever week (day!).
Now that I have a MS Windows I like, I'm inclined to pickup the new Visual Studio and start playing with it. However I'd be amazed if there were not some hot .Net programmers out there, or KDE or Gnome, or osX... Etc.
As for the license, at this point only people who paid for a license have one. I can't condone using a password generator (if one even exists) as it is a violation of the copyright, and not something a business (or really anyone) should consider. The risks are too high.
At this point I've started on some documentation, I'm hoping that I can have the API for the local clients out within the next month or so. Basically I document when I'm just too tired to code. I'd rather typo in the documentation than in the core.
Besides, it works better then hot milk for getting me back asleep.
