The Trouble With Software Upgrades

Apathetic1 Re:Case in point: (356 comments)

WinAmp 5 is WinAmp 2 with bugfixes and additional plugins. It's the additional plugins that are giving you the trouble. The "Lite" version doesn't include most of the bloat, so WinAmp 5 should do everything you need it to do, especially on older hardware.

Karma Bonus?

Apathetic1 Apathetic1 writes  |  more than 10 years ago

My Karma must have recently hit fifty (er... Excellent) since I've started getting the option to turn off the +1 Karma bonus.

Okay. Fine.

But I don't seem to get the Karma bonus either way, option set or option unset. I don't really care about the bonus itself (I usually turn off the +1 bonus, in fact) but I wish when the box was there, it would do what it claims to do.

Maybe I'll e-mail CowboyNeal.

I was idly flipping through my user settings and noticed some time between the last time I checked and now, I've made a foe - sirinek (#41507).

It does make me curious if I fall into the Obvious Trolls category, the Snotty Foreigner category or the Flamebait category. I'm guessing the Snotty Foreigner category but I'll probably never know.
