JavaShare 2 makes a break for it

Looks like ozone, the multiplatform BeShare client, may have a contender. Or alternatively, may /be/ one. It seems that the creator of the original JavaShare, Bryan Varner, is prepping for a “Code-A-Thon” to take place this weekend. The Goal? A beta of JavaShare 2… with full filesharing support. However.. this isn’t pure generosity. By announcing now, he is gathering funds to use during the code-a-thon… on such neccessities as pizza, soda, chips, etc. Currently he has about $44 collected. $75 buys the full 3 day span… and oh yeah.. there is gonna be a webcam. so, if you have $30 and want to see what happens about 2.5 days into a 3 day non stop “code-a-thon” - you know what to do. And if you don’t know what to do, you are dumb. Dont worry about it.. just continue to bang your head against the wall.

The gauntlet has been thrown. Can ozone come back with a full 96 hour code-a-thon? Could this escalate to a triple digit code-a-thon war?!? Only time will tell. all I know is that non-beos users will soon have a plethora (look kids! big words!) of choices for invading your beshare turf. Be afraid. Be /very/ afraid. el Presidente is waiting. muwHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.
