Holy Crap, Batman!  You'd think I was running Windows XP and it's patch
Tuesday.

So far this week - new kernel (2.6.27.10), 2 new browsers (Opera 9.63
and Firefox 3.05) and a new plugin (Flash 10.0.156.3).  I'm about ready
to try one od the BSD's!

To release a new buggy version every two weeks is not very professional. Test your software before the release and let the user download a stable browser. this update-orgy since 2.0.0 used me to use Opera instead of FF. We haved use FF in our Company, but we can't deploy a new version every week to +200 Windows-clients, so in our company we've decided to return to IE, ...

I was a big fan of Firefox.. Now, I don't even like to use it. Seems like every time I start it up I have to update some addin OR the browser itself. And unfortunately the update nag messages are always presented when I start a browsing session. I find this annoying because, typically, when I open a web browser all I want to do is go to a web page. Not update the browser. I can agree that staying current with the latest version could give the best, fastest, safest web experience. But that point becomes mute when I start off every other browsing session with a new update. And mos...

So, I am forced to use a PC to which I would much rather use Firefox than Internet Exploder. However, as much I enjoy not using a Microsoft product, and use a product that works decently, I am severely annoyed about the constant updates I am put through. In the last two days, I had to wait for Firefox to install updates before I could browse and now, I'm alerted that there'...

Name: Product: Firefox Summary: Updates Updates Updates Comments: Seems like every time I open the program there is a wait period while some new arcane update gets installed. I have enjoyed and advocated firefox for a good while, but the update thing is really starting to bug me. Doubtless I could simply change the settings to accept the updates or not notify me or something similar - but I CAN'T BE ASSED. I'd have to consider this for more than 30 seconds and as we've already seen I CAN'T BE ASSED. Please make this less annoying in return for which I promis...

Name: John Oswell Email: serviceatwinntecdotcom Product: Firefox Summary: Update Update - endless updates Comments: I think it's great you update the product but I'm starting to think this product is more prone to attack and instability by the number of updates i get inflicted with. Quite honestly on the Windows platform you're going to need to convince me that the Firefox browser is "better" than IE8 - my default browser (ff right now) I'm probably going to revert - endless intrusive updates for Firefox is getting very tiring. At least MS (I'm ...

Update not updating
I'm using Web Matrix and the Update code wizard. I have an Access db with a table 'Users'. This contains a Username (primary key) and a password. If I use:- "UPDATE [Users] SET [Password]=@Password WHERE ([Users].[User] = @user)" the update does not work and no errors are reported. If I use:- "UPDATE [Users] SET [Password]=@Password WHERE ([Users].[User] = ""barry"")" the update works!!!. I've spent hours trying to resolve this to no avail. Could this be a bug in oledb and if so does anyone have a work around? Best frustra...

Gang... Everything for the forthcoming SSL Certificate Fingerprinting system is finished and ready for pre-release deployment. But today the site has been -- and still is -- unusually busy. And I need to bring the server down briefly to update the master resident "ne.dll" which is where all this code lives. And doing that, boots everyone off, cancels all underway downloads, aborts ShieldsUP! runs, etc. So I want to wait a few hours until things have calmed down, and slowed, down a bit. -- ________________________________________________________________ Steve...

An Update Update ...
Folks, Just off the phone with Mark again. It seems that the points I was making during my afternoon of "debate" with Mark were echoed by the one other person involved in the early (very early) testing of Spambo. As a result one more *VERY* cool feature will soon be added to Spambo: You'll be able to pop-up a listview of all recent eMail which has passed through Spambo -- and sort it any way you like -- where every item will have a "Spam checkbox" showing Spambo's current classification for that piece of eMail. Thus ... all you'll need t...
