Trillain 1.0 Pro with Privacy Fix

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by Armed and DWI, Sep 8, 2002.

  1. I found a place to download the new Trillian coming out in a few months.

    htttp:/xxxxxxxxxxxxx

    For those that don't know, when Trillian Pro 1.0 comes out of beta, it's going to be PAYWARE. Yup that's right. Yeah yeah, AOL and MSN and Yahoo won't have that, I agree, but all I know is that they're charging for it.

    Anyway when you try the download, notice really how little it has changed - and they've been working on that for almost ONE FULL YEAR. And they want to CHARGE FOR IT?

    Ever been to the Trillian forums? They are nazis - they censor any speculation or ideas about the next version. The only thing you are allowed to say about it is "When's it coming out" but then you'll get flamed. So yeah basically you can't talk about it at all.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Trillian the program too, but the people behind it are a**holes. [ language ]

    So just do me a favor - download it http://www.fileconnect.net and go to their forums at http://www.trillian.cc and make sure you post about how you have it and use it (they REALLY hate beta leaks)

    I'm ameoba. I'm a Moderator at Trillian Forums. Allow me to respond:

    It's out NOW.

    Yes, it is payware. It does more then IM.

    It's changed significantly.

    You only got censored or flamed for violation of the Terms of Service, which you agreed to when signing up for the forum. That included breeching any information regarding the beta, which was closed and required a Non-disclosure Agreement. We tried to let people discuss the beta, but were overwhelmed with links to warez sites and people leaking false information about the development project.

    Well....being called an ******* by you is an honor for me. You're less then respectful on my forums.

    Please feel free to try the product and visit the forums. Failure to abide by the TOS will result in banning of your screenname and/or IP address (or subnet).

    By the way, Armed and DWI...You'll find that you are no longer able to access our forums. It's a shame that you couldn't follow simple rules.

    Trillian Pro looks very cool and if if my credit card had not have been rejected I would have got my copy by now :p

    One of my friends just purchased it and is still waiting for his key to arrive... then he is gonna let me know how it is...

    Don't worry we have no intention of posting a keygen or any such tool for using the pro version here.

    Might add that I am still trying to find a working link for 0.74 :p

    Thanks on both counts. (Support and no keygens).

    I'd imagine the .74 sites are going to be a little overrun ATM.

    for getting your key:

    Log into the members section, and change your email to anything.
    then change it back

    that solves it for a lot of people (ps... Ameoba really can't do anything to help :-()

    he says he already tried it once and it didn't work.
    Prob just loads up the mailservers even more, which is my guess at the problem!

    Excuse my spelling as it is difficult to type while my JAW IS ON THE FLOOR IN SHOCK THAT THEY FOUND THIS TOO!

    FRIKING CRAZY!

    Whoever's server that beta was on...holy crap am I gonna read a newspaper article about how they found his body at the bottom of a lake!? I could see the headline now: "Webmaster Found Dead - Notorious User of Bootleg Instant Messaging Software"

    As for my ban - technically I never was an official beta tester, so I never agreed to NDA? So what did I really violate? (no I don't expect to win that argument)

    *hopes car won't explode when starting it tomorrow*
