KNot (pronounced "k-not") is the new installment of our popular floating-note application, which was removed two years ago from our site due to legal implications with its name.
"Akatanomasto" (the "one that cannot be named" in Greek) had several bugs, was written in an old version of Delphi and we decided to drop it all together since maintaining it would be far worse burden.
KNot has been designed and written from scratch and uses our latest technologies in terms of graphics and file handling.
The first version of KNot ("Akatanomasto") released in 1999, was one of the first applications ever to use a TCP/IP network to send instant messages to other computers. Long before the messaging clients of today. That version used TCP sockets and a very basic bespoke protocol for its networking. The current release of KNot uses a much broadly used internet protocol, SMTP, the same protocol that email servers and clients use. While the underlying protocol has changed, the user interface is still the same; simplistic and easy to use. Just enter the name of the computer you want to send the message to and make sure that the other machine is running KNot and is listening for messages.
