Those were the days, all those pre cut symbols at 2x or 4X and delivering it to the camera shop. I found it rather satisfying.

I like the idea of AES67. I do hope it catches on.

I have stopped that updating. Only new features for the salesdroids and old
bugs for me. I suppose if you take an old protel99 library and rename it to .pcblib
it still crashes. I had to find it out myself; they declined any support because I run
it in a VMware machine. I understand that they do not like that because I could
give away a copy of that virtual machine, but it would be traceable to my license
and having paid Ä15K over the years I can definitely expect some support.
It was THEIR bug, after all.

A very common problem in today's software, CTOs consider software as a commodity (if not as an annoyance) that'd better be free or worst case an OTS solution, while the software people complied and as a result don't give a **** about the quality. 20 years ago, a browser compatibility was making or breaking a software release, today nobody cares if it works in Chrome but doesn't work properly in FireFox "use Chrome" is the support response. Embedded software still has a trace of decency, since some is still facing the service paying John Sixpack that won't digest the "us Chrome" mantra.
