    "or was the 1.0 so good that no security or framework will not come in the nearest future?" Oh, damned. I should have read the question before hitting the button. But I guess you have the hall of fame here somewhere for stupid questions that are asked by users. Have fun mocking me. What I meant is that ... There is this lussumo 0.9 installation (not mine). Should it be upgraded to 1.0 now or should they wait for month or two (for any small changes). Most owners are not interested in fixing and updating the technical side of the forum, just using it for discussions. The next update after "1.1" could be "2.0" for them ie skipping all the changes between these. I hope the vanilla makes into "2.0" I guess that clarifies my point & the answer is that they should install current version.

    Bill Gates has been giving money away for years. Mark doesnt need to find bugs cause there arent any (honest, it's perfect!), and he's more likely to take features out the core than add them in. The next version should definitely be vanilla 2006 though!

    Ohhhhh. Okay, I understand now.

    No, don't wait. Upgrade now. Vanilla 1 is the most stable and secure version of Vanilla to date. There are two or three minor bugs that will be fixed and released in a minor release within a couple of weeks. Upgrading from Vanilla 1 to 1.0.1 will be as easy as copying the new files on top of the old ones. A completely painless procedure.

    minisweeper, we need bugs and we need them fast. One can better control the serfs when there are bugs and threats of bugs around. They will come running back to this site, when they are scared and feeling vunerable. We can settle their nerves with a new update. And in time for the Xmas market, Mark should release Vanilla Pro 2007. It's great that Bill Gates is giving so much away. I know loads of folks who he has given copies of windows xp to.

    lol i love bill gates :P i installed a version of windows and later found out it was illegal (still got it) yet it still lets me install the updates so it is just like a normal copy.

    cool! someone told me that on the binary newsgroups regular xp updates are posted. ;)

    "Upgrading from Vanilla 1 to 1.0.1 will be as *easy* as copying the new files on top of the old ones. A completely *painless* procedure" I disagree. It is major effort for *some* people. It's like changing oil in your car. You could do it yourself (men) or drive to the nearest service station (woman). That's why I think hosted vanilla forum will be quite a hit.

    If uploading your files with an ftp program is difficult for you, I have no idea how you got Vanilla installed in the first place.

    I agree that a hosted vanilla solution is a good idea, but I've decided not to do it for the time being.

    I wouldn't mind seeing new replies or topic updates appear automagically, tho.

    Talking as someone who's halfway through an oil change on their car, it's not an easy process! Where does the damn stuff go back in?!

    Regarding the use of Ajax... I think there's plenty of it in Vanilla and the quantity is just right. I wouldn't mind seeing it in the comment editing process tho (can someone make an extension? *blink blink* :)).

    mini... are you serious?
  • Options
    Serious in what way? Yes i was halfway through an oil change, and no i wasnt sure where to put the oil in. It's all done now though :)

    Just like in babies and people--in the top, out the bottom.

    you're really dedicated to these forums, man... oil-stained keyboard and everything
    unless you came inside to google "LOL, WHERE DO I PUT THE OIL INTO MY CAR" which is great as well :)
  • Options
    Pretty much both, ithcy. The oil change took me a few days in total... :D
  • Options
    lol we operate in very similar ways, minisweeper! if in doubt, google the problem/solution. i used to always change my own oil, filters and plus etc. But in my last car i gave up, everything was so hard to access.
  • Options
    You'd be surprised (or not) how difficult it is to find instructions how to change the oil on car engines. There were tons of instructions how to build the car, build the engine, swap the gearbox, add the kitchen sink... Changing (or even just adding) oil is the sort of thing people are expected to know i guess. I know now atleast. Wouldnt even consider changing the oil /whatever on the clio though.
  • Options
    yes, i suspect that the lack of info on how to chnage the oil, filters and plugs on a car, is part of a conspiracy on the part of big business/garages :) Seriously, why don't they want us to do it ourselves? Obviously they want us to pay them for their so-called *services* The same holds true imhpo re MOT's. Big business and the govt are in cahoots across the world....making us spend money into the economy each year. When i lived in the countryside, with plenty of grass around me, draining the oil sump was no big issue. But since living in the town in recent years, it is not so easy. Was the Clio awkward? I have a peugeot 306 at the minute.
