linux default iconOFFSystem Publisher's description

OFFSystem is a distributed filesystem in which everything is stored in reference to randomized data blocks.

OFFSystem (Owner-Free Filesystem) is a distributed filesystem in which everything is stored in reference to randomized data blocks, as opposed to a 1:1 copy of the original data being inserted. The creators of the Owner-Free Filesystem have coined a new term to define the network: A brightnet. Nobody shares any copyrighted files, and therefore nobody needs to hide away.

OFF provides a platform through which data can be stored (publicly or otherwise) in a discreet, distributed manner. The system allows for personal privacy because data (blocks) being transferred from peer to peer does not bear any relation to the original data. Incidentally, no data passing through the network can be considered copyrighted because the means by which it is represented is truly random.

Derivative works?

Many people may, at first glance, assume that blocks used in OFF to store any given file would be considered derivative works of the original copyrighted file in question. However, as stated above, no data stored or transferred in OFF is copyrighted because all data is randomized. This can be explained in a simple mathematical analogy, in that every number has an infinite number of representations (3+2=5, 2*2+1=5, 10-5=5, 10/2=5, etc). Even if a number (file) in question can be copyrighted under current legislation, it is practically impossible and unreasonable to state that every other representation of that particular number is copyrighted.

OFF is based on this simple mathematical property, and demonstrates that certain content can be directly stored against the same blocks that initially stored other completely unrelated data.

File Retrieval

There is only one way to retrieve any data stored on the OFFSystem, which is the creation of a URL. This special URL contains instructions on how to re-assemble a particular stored file in the system. Typically, URLs are created upon insertion into the system. With special configuration, it is also possible to allow files to be automaticall

What's New in This Release:

?пїЅ Fixed bug where the "Waiting/Active/Expired" column in downloads was not kept current if the waiting and expired sets were empty.
?пїЅ The SecReq class (for requesting blocks) now inherits AsyncCnxnBase. Over time this class will be integrated into AsyncCnxn which handles all other connection types,
