Open Source

As the title implies, this post is about open source. Some people will go like, “Open source? What’s that?” Open source just means that some program, be it something as large as an operating system or as small as a calculator, is freely editable and usable by anyone in the world, free of cost. (Most of these projects ask for donations.) Linux is open source. Well, you ask, “Why doesn’t everyone use open source?” The main reason for that is most open source projects don’t offer support in the form of a telephone number. Instead, they use a forum to ask you, the people, to report bugs and features. I know for ¬†fact that some people think that they should be getting much better support. They are used to support that will be with them 24/7, the entire year.

Results

Here are some of the results of different server jars for mods!
Tekkit Lite: very laggy, even for just one person. It was minecraft 1.4.6
Ftb lite: worked very well, and there was no noticeable lag. Minecraft 1.6.4.
However, ftb lite had no build craft and industrial craft, so I chose not to use it.

Things I will be testing are:
Spigot + tekkit lite
Spigot + risers pack
Tell me what u think.

Zum Apps

Guess what? I have officially decided to end the existence of zumlets. Instead I will now be developing and adding zum apps. This new service relies on flash and javascript, which every windows computer has. Also, this will allow us to create much more powerful full featured apps. This new service will be contained within a store, where you can add it to your own zumnet. The apps will mostly be games. Email me any apps you would like and they will be added to the zum store shortly.

Zumcloud

Zumcloud is officially being released on January 2nd. What is Zumcloud, you may ask? Zumcloud is an all new cloud service from Zumnet. This service will give an entire 10gb of storage free. More info to come on this post. Update: The new service will offer:
A calendar
Note taking
Cloud bookmarks
The ability to sign in to google drive and add storage
Contacts
Music
Picture
And much more!
