@Enternal
Ugliness always make me shiver and nauseate of disgust. By the way I am not using AIMP version 3 default skin Pandemic but Siveria. I have added several Winamp add-ons which work with AIMP 3 (for example for playing LA files) but I am not sure that they will be compatible with version 4 (most likely they will be). I have no reason whatsoever to update to version 4 since AIMP 3 can play all the formats I need. More- there is a moral problem- for me updating to version 4 means succumbing to the ubiquitous modern evil of flat ugliness while choosing not to update means that I refuse to accept the developer's detestable taste. If I saw AIMP version 4 for the first time I would have never bothered to test it.

Great player! Thanx for sharing....

smaragdus REALLY? wow I didn't realize that looks over substance was so important to sum people. Now I'm curious what others think about the "looks" of V4 or if most just don't care like me, please don't misunderstand I understand how you feel its just foreign 2me is all I'm saying. Of course if V3 suits your needs then by all means that's the correct version for you to use, no matter what I or others think. Enjoy.:)

@apometron
What you state is not true, both Pidgin and Miranda NG can connect to Facebook via plug-ins. It is not Miranda IM and Pidgin fault that evil Facebook dumped open-source XMPP (Jabber) protocol in favour of a proprietary, closed-source one. Anyway, using Facebook for communication is the worst choice possible.

Specular on 2016-03-11 09:03

I think if Miranda IM doesn't support Facebook it could simply be removed from the description. If Miranda NG works with it it might be worth adding to its entry for users who are looking for the support.

smaragdus on 2016-06-26 20:08

Miranda IM 0.10.53 fails to connect to AOL while Miranda NG 0.95.5 connects fine. Not that I need AOL, just an observation.

Added a note about films because I watched that Sintel short film created with Blender, which was in some areas even better than the work Pixar and Dreamworks are putting out commercially.

I have no idea why the "GUI version without installer" has the .man extension, but it's only a simple archive and can be extracted with 7zip or UniversalExtractor. So "How to extract" field is still displaying correct information.

You are right! My Opera is at fault here. My beloved Opera failed my once more...again... Maybe it's finally time to put it to rest...
