I have developed a pretty cool (so I've been told) network application. I want to make it open source and get it distributed worldwide. But I need some help.
In a sentence or two, it is a versatile software app that provides easy connectivity across the net analogous to what a hardware network hub does for you. Using this core app, I wrote an internet chat client program all in tcl/tk (660 lines including 200 for the gui) which I provide in the tarball.
For a quick Linux intro, go to http://rocketship1.com and click on the following link

or go directly there:
Ok, I've written the code. I've tested it for nearly a year. Some have told me this is a pretty cool app. I want to give it away and watch it improve or just become more available via the open source movement.
But, I don't have the time, know-how, or energy to do this myself (I'm not young anymore). On the link above, you can get a tarball with all the source, simple makefile, and pre-built binary (intel Linux) and some sample TCL/tk scripts to use and demo the application. There is more documentation, (not my strongest point) at the website.
I am looking for some helpful volunteer(s) that might find this app fun or useful. It is not just a toy. It is being used on a $100 million government project (where I work - we recently ported to linux).
So, if you would like to help, or just want to take a look, you can visit my site or email any comments to me at
