This just does not register with you does it. You are in serious
denial. How many different ways can I tell you that JCIFS is not an
HTTP library?

So let me get this straight, you want me to let you add code to JCIFS
(that I previously explained to you in great detail would absolutely
not work) and add HTTP stuff that has nothing to do with CIFS. Then
when it breaks (and it will because you really have no clue what
you're doing) you want me to fix and maintain it? Oh, and for free.

You are funny. Unfortunately for you this list is for serious people
doing *work* so this thread ends now.
