locked Re: Thunderbird talking way too much
Jean a big issue is stability.
I have 1 machine here.
So I could test something, then it screws up everything.
Then I need to reinstall what that is, or completely reformat and reinstall the os.
Technically I do have another machine but no room to test it.
I could vm things I guess but that could be hit and miss at times to.
Your average user wants to get their stuff and go.
Back in the day I did try to do this.
It can be done, but its rough.
A bug can appear which looks worse than it is but isn't noticable until you think smaller.
Winamp plugins can get out of date, in this example, I was testing dolphin maps.
My system was all loopy because of 1 little file in 1 folder.
That file was causing the app to malfunction badly.
But it looked like an os issue.
Running the fixes didn't help, running several reformat didn't help.
It was only after my 10th reformat of the day that I decided to look at the maps I had installed on test, I found the map causing the issue and reported it.
However after that experience, unless I get a bigger desk and another machine to test unstable stuff on that if it screws up and I need to reformat regularly and it doesn't matter, I won't be doing that.
I don't have room right now for either and I am to chicken to try again.
I have enough issue keeping all things updated on my stable system, doing my testing and other things and living my life without a system going down because of something trivial.
That was back in my teens and 20s.
I will be 38 this year, my time seeing what this button does is over.
If it really screws up like it did last year, then it screwed up but I don't care or enjoy fixing it anymore if it does.
I would prefur not to cause things to screw up by chance.
