You are granted no license to use this source for any purpose other than compiling your own copy for your own personal use.
I've had a change of heart on this issue, and am now reopening the source liscense.
You may use it for whatever you like as long as you adhere to the following.
1) You cannot distribute modified copies which have the name "WAU", "Ace", "WowAce", or use the spade icon.
2) You cannot distribute modified copies which imply that the version is "Free", "Ad Free", etc. You can however use "Open" to indicate that the version is open source (but not "free").
3) You must change the user-agent string if you redistribute the application
4) You must credit PProvost and Sylvaan as the original authors, but you should not imply that either of us is the author of your modified version.
5) You should point the help menu option choices to your own site.
6) You need to show the "This version will not auto-update" message in the output window if your modified copy updates from files.wowace.com (if you point it to a private site such as a guild site, then this doesn't apply)
I made a few changes, the source which was affected is attached.
I personally want to give you a big thanks here.
I have been a Unix programmer for years and recently was required to do some applications in .NET
I have no desire to make a WAU or any similar product however I was able to reverse engineer some things in your application which allowed me to move forward in mine being 100% new to .NET
People really dont understand how awesome the Open Source community is. It allows people to create "The Better Mouse Trap" as well as allows people like me to use your code as a tutorial / classroom. I was able to figure out some thread issues where I had threads stepping on each other and using the WUA which I knew was multithreaded and used sockets was in essence what I was trying to produce.
Many thanks for providing us this application let alone access to the source code many Kudos to you and those who assisted you on this project.
WAU's code is really badly written, so keep that in mind. The goal was functionality in as little time as possible, and it was developed iteratively over a long time. It does work though, and that's always helpful (this is incidentally the reason why it was not rewritten)
