Seriously do we need threads every time a piece of software is updated?

If the AVG ones weren't bad enough popping up every day or even more often, there are the SpyBot ones, now this.

Some people love to update for the fun of it. Sometimes its better to leave well alone

On the topic of spelling, not one of your better posts tweak'e.
I count 6 mistakes in 5 lines.

We all make mistakes I know but some of the posts on this forum are embarrassing to read and do no credit to the originator.

Kinda wish I hadn't upgraded to 5. It loads much slower and I haven't seen a single improvement

Reckon - Winamp 2.91 is G-Unit.

I mean, way way better than anything else.

I wish I could talk urban hip-hop language.

The point of language is to communicate, and whilst I agree that poor spelling is an annoyance it really isn't very important just as long as the meaning is conveyed:

"Aoccdrnig to rseearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe."

Getting obsessive compulsive about spelling is a waste of energy.

You're slipping Jim. ;-)

I can actually see 8 mistakes in those five lines so I think tweak'e wins this round. ;-)

I thought Winamp was released up to 2.95, or am I wrong?

The only reason (literally) I changed from version 3 to 5 is because three took even longer to load, and 2 was dragging it's feet a bit in terms of features.
