In which I stab my eyes out
July 30, 2006

Oh MT, I paid for your license so I could use you to my liking, which is much more than I've done with many other unnamed software packages. The upgrade to 3.1 went fine; in fact, I was amazed at the ease of the whole process. However, I am very much saddened by this turn of events. Thank goodness I had the foresight of one whose back was burned by the hindsight of many poorly written upgrades - I backed up all of my data. At least, all of the data and files that matter. But here I am, late on a Sunday night, with no way of posting normally - I have to go through 3 screens to trick your little backend into forcing my words out onto the internets. And it's not like I have plenty of other stuff on which I should be spending my time, either. Oh, I'm sure I'll get all of your code prettified tomorrow, but the point is why should I? I spent money, in hopes that software that was no longer in beta would indeed be more stable and have better upgrade capacities - that your people would feel the need to write documentation that would vilify its own existence. I look forward to the day when you care again, really I do. So, until better times, I will give you my slightly-divided attention, and you, I hope, will give me all of your broken cgi, your loren-ipsummed perl scripts, and after rewriting code someone else was paid to do, all will be well.


Oh, I am glad I did not rapidly follow your upgrading footsteps. Hey, speaking of, remind me to send you an email regarding a question relating to our server migrations.
