i know you sent it with a big smiley
but i didn't write that code
nor would i know how to fix it
i do what i can. i run the latest code on a number of machines.
and as a result i have to accept the ridicule and anger directed at me
from my family when it breaks. i test stuff. i try to debug stuff. i
send it the odd very small patch.
but right now, i cannot afford to abandon three perfectly good machines
just because of a bug. it's not a dead platform to me.
