IM - File Sharing

Imagine Instant Messaging and File Sharing combined!

Intrigued? I am! - On the way home today, I was thinking about the implementation of the MSN Messenger Protocol I'm currently (not so much) working on, when a thought struck me - why not implement a Bot atop the implementation and let people search my online files or whatever I might be sharing. It should be as simple as

/search "Some filename"

(please note the IRC like commands :-) )

And the result could be a list of links to where ever the files are available for downloads like:

Some file
Some like file

By using some sort of ticket mechanism in each link which is combined with the user (remember we have the user of the trustee list), its even possible to make sure all others cannot download the files, but only people who have searched the file using the IM client, hence only people you TRUST (otherwise they're probably not on your IM friends list anyways, right?).
Well yet another nice idea I'd probably never will find the time to implement!!

Better think again ;)

I have been researching peer to peer file sharing resources and I stumbled upon your blog. Although IM - File Sharing isn't what I was really after, it made a change from the usual run-of-the-mill blogs I normally seem to find. I'm going now to find more information on peer to peer file sharing. Take care.

Hey lborupj, nice blog site. Seems everybody has one of these blog sites except me. Even my sister has one, but she just likes to complain about everything....and I really mean everything. You know, the world sucks, She started it after her boyfriend dumped her. Originally I started out searching websites looking for peer 2 peer related info to improve the traffic at my site; then I decided to try blog sites. There are so many of them it's unbelievable. I never heard of or knew what a blog was until last year. Anyway, I'm trying to improve my site at and was originally looking for relevant information I could use. Got sidetracked a It was interesting. Thanks lborupj, Mike
