    XLink Kai: Evolution VIII

    Hey, as promised previously, I'm here to provide the first official information about the next phase of the Kai project - Evolution VIII. This is a pretty big document - so bear with me. As you're about to find out, the future of the Kai project is pretty ambitious.. Over the past 6 months, Kai has been getting bigger. A huge surge in users, followed by sustained media coverage in gaming magazines and TV shows all over the world has drawn commercial interest from a large number of different companies, wanting to do a number of different things with us / to us. I'm happy to say that what we do here will remain fundamentally the same - nobody pays for anything, ever - not even the guys who want to partner with us to use 8 services. With that said, what's to say that everyone can't be happy? If only stuff was a bit more flexible ;)

    Evo 8 is not designed as a tunneling service - it's designed as a global gaming network. The first *use* of 8 is the tunneling client, and it's set to showcase everything which 8 has to offer. See, 8 is a set of modular services, which can be bolted together in any combination, by anyone, to painlessly provide every aspect of online gaming - for free. Before I explain how this makes Kai's tunneling service a hell of a lot more fun, let's take a look at the modular services 8 provides - the 8 Pillars of Kai. All of these modules are DSA based (Distributed Services Architecture) - much like the current Orbital mesh. In other words, there are loads of them, they're fast, and it doesn't tend to break.

    Can ICANN display "Root Server" status in real-time ?

    "This map shows Kai's "Orbital Servers" - points of presence for the Kai network. You will be connected to your nearest "Orb" - unless it's busy - then you will be directed to the next nearest. Hover over an Orb for more info."

    What were the millions of dollars at ICANN spent on ? [A. lawyers]

    Linksys WRT54G - IPv8 Firmware for your router that contains an embedded KaiEngine, allowing you to eliminate the need for a PC if combined with XBMC's KaiUI.
