Need your help to get in touch with gurumeditation.se

Hello all,

I need your help to get in touch with the people from gurumeditation.se.

I tried sending an email using this link, but I never got an answer:
http://gurumeditation.se/contact_us.php

In the past there was a nice FTP Client for OS3 called AmiFTP.
Gurumeditation got the Sources from the original programmer.
ZeroHero made the OS4 version, but there is still a bug.

ZeroHero is not willing to fix this bug. He is also not willing to give me the sources, until I will have an OK from gurumeditation.se.

AmiFTP is really a cute client, small, fast and it would be nice not to loose this nice piece of software.

PLEASE HELP!!!!

Latest Version from AmiFTP is 1.946, but it has a bug that if you transfer folders containing files, connection speed goes down... yes it is a bug, the programmer knows this bug, but is not willing to fix it.

If source code is available, maybe somebody else could fix it?...

The sources are not avaliable yet, as explained in the OP. That's the whole point of trying to contact gurumeditation.se:

I was already in touch with Zerohero via email, he said he need an official ok from gurumeditation.se to give me sources. Zerohero said he will not fix any bugs.

Edit: Anyway the link I've found there is the one you've got.
Edit: Ok, I didn't read all your posts. I've seen the post of Photon. Sorry.

Perhaps from here:

In the Safir Forum there is a Post from GuruMeditation:
"I have been in touch with Zero Hero now for a small semi-anonymous text message I received recently."

But how can I understand this? Can anybody PLEASE ask, please...


By the way, this email is no more working: reflect[@]phreaker[.]net
Other seems to be working, but without feedback.

If we can not solve this problem by getting the source to fix it, maybe someone can patch the original OS4 version? I know here are mainly OS3 people...

I SMS:ed Andreas Loong a while back explaining things and now I called him tonight. He said he's given ZeroHero all clear to release the source, provided the project stays open source.

Looked for him in the right IRC channels, but he wasn't there. Andreas said he thinks he's inactive on the Safir forums.

So basically now "all" that is needed is to establish contact with ZeroHero. Perhaps via Amigaworld.net?

Update:

OK, I talked to ZeroHero. He said he will upload the source to Aminet and post on Safir when he has done so. He will write license information in that thread, he said "something like GPL".

So keep an eye out and hopefully it will be available soon.

@Photon
THANK YOU VERY MUCH! You are my personal hero!

Now someone can fix the bug in the OS4 release which occurs on downloading a folder and also maybe a backport to OS3 is possible. This program is the stress worth. Thanks again to all who helped in this case.
