  1. Review - Miranda IM (64-bit)

    0.10.49 (Apr 13, 2016)

    no bonjour support. been a problem for YEARS and devs ignore it.

  2. Review - Miranda IM (64-bit)

    0.10.47 (Mar 17, 2016)

    the only "update" is a bugfix for SQLlite, so basically, for the common user this means nothing.

    Bonjour support has been need for quite some time now, and the devs just ignore it. Pidgin is way better than this. It's portable, lightweight, free, and does everything this rag does

  3. Review - Miranda IM (32-bit)

    0.10.47.0 (Mar 8, 2016)

    and here's this releases' notes:

    Bugfixes:
    – Update SQLite library

    so they've basically done nothing.

  4. Review - BeeBEEP

    3.0.0 (Oct 31, 2015)

    @cyerdoc999 seriously dude, read the description... it specifically tells you on LOCAL networks without a server.
    I rate the program a 4 for the effort, and you a 1 for complete ignorance.

  5. Review - Mozilla Firefox (64-bit Beta)

    41.0 Beta 4 (Aug 26, 2015)

    Used to be browser of choice... but lately they have driven me to search for an alternative browser. This locks up, consumes ridiculous amounts of memory, and has become virtually useless on Windows 10. Rather than fix these issues, the devs has focused on feature building with no obvious benefit to the user.

    Chrome too restrictive with "secure' features,

  6. Comment - Julius Baer drops suit against Wikileaks

    41.0 Beta 4 (Mar 6, 2008 - 12:50 PM)

    The only reason for a person, persons, company or companies to have a problem with a whistleblower is that they were involved in wrong doing to begin with. With that in mind, the public by and large have the right to know. Don't put your hand in the cookie jar, and you will never get caught with it there.

  7. Comment - Three Cellular Carriers Fined Over 911

    41.0 Beta 4 (Sep 1, 2007 - 6:03 PM)

    Um, you're not getting those phones for free, no matter what they tell you. You are in a contract that costs way more than you should have to pay for using phone service. Do you think you're really paying a fair price and getting what you're paying for? Keep telling yourself that. You WAY MORE than pay for those phones throughout the course of your contract. Try and cancel a contract and guess what? You get to pay a nice hefty cancellation fee. What do you think that fee is mostly for? You guessed it...to pay for that "free phone" you thought you got.

    Tracking people in 911 calls is not done by GPS.. it's done by cellular triangulation, and some other high technobabble.

  8. Comment - Google Opens Gmail Signups Further

    41.0 Beta 4 (Feb 8, 2007 - 2:54 PM)

    Hotmail has the wonderful feature of setting up a white list that blocks out all emails from anyone except those that you specifically identify. Gmail doesn't have this. While the spam filter works fairly well, it still sickens me that the box fills up with close to 1500 spams over the course of 2 - 3 days. It wouldn't be a probolem with a configurable white list, which I've submitted requests for, but those requests seem to have fallen on "deaf ears, blind eyes"

  9. Comment - Microsoft Rushes to Fix Critical XP Flaw

    41.0 Beta 4 (Jul 18, 2005 - 8:32 PM)

    If MS was informed in May, how can they say they're "rushing" to fix this? Shouldn't the patch have been made available at the very next set of updates? Oh yeah sure... 'they've been working on it'. Uh huh.

  10. Comment - Citigroup Loses Data on 3.9 Million

    41.0 Beta 4 (Jun 7, 2005 - 11:07 AM)

    that's why they call it a 'class action suit' and yes, UPS deserves to be made to pay for their incompetence. Over the past 5-10 years they've been damaging and losing packages at an alarming rate, and they've been delivering packages late by sometimes as much as a day or two. WHat many customers don't realize is that they are entitled to refunds for these late or lost packages. UPS and other shippers rely on this ignorance to keep the 4 billion or so annual dollars a secret so they will not have to pay it back.
