Well, with Fel I believe these were only misunderstandings,
cause she does not speak English so well and she is a German as me.
She won't even admit that her English sucks. Her pride is misplaced.
Quote
Also she said, that she can not post email correspondance publically,
because of legal problems in German law.
Were that true -- there's no email conversation or anything to begin with.
What she was referring to, was my post here... Which when pasted over there, was *deleted*. Because it implied that she has bad judgment.
Quote
BTW, her PortaMX company has another women as her partner and a few
freelance works.
Is she called "the girl in my mirror"?
Quote
They are doing software consulting for bigger companies.
Big companies like PortaMx Corporation? :rolleyes:
Quote
Fel is the CEO who is devoting now all her time to
develop the PortaMX portal software most of her time.
I'm pretty sure a "bigger company" wouldn't let her spend her time on a hobby.
Quote
She will soon release PortaMX 1.0 with great new features.
I got it that you're a fan, but what I see is that she's blaming me before even looking at my code. Doesn't sound like she wants to be friendly.

Well, as long as your fork is not out yet and when  it is out and there are missing
functions, that the SMF2.0RC4 and a few other MODs combination can give me,
I would not change to your fork
as needed functions (Mods) are missing.
I'm not asking you to switch to my fork.
Did I ever ask anyone to do that?
Why would I ask anyone to do that?

I'm making this fork because it was killing me not to be able to improve SMF just because it's managed by a bunch of morons. So, I'm putting my heart into it. Whether people use it or not doesn't matter. "If it doesn't work, use SMF." I don't even need to keep it compatible. And it won't be.

And here was me thinking I'd already covered this off anyway with hartiberlin, that we will not be guilt-tripped, no matter how innocuously, or intentionally, into making something that doesn't fit with what we want to make, it just so happens that what we want to make is what a number of other people want.


Breaking away from SMF, and breaking any chance of SMF compatibility on our side in the code were the two (first) best things we ever did.

Okay, keep on programming guys !  :)

 If your fork will be good, there will be people, that will use it.

Maybe you will be successful like Joomla was it versus the other CMS
that it was coming from.. ( just forgot the name right now...)

Happy hacking !

-sigh-

I actually, hand on heart, do not care if it's successful. I care that it works, does what I want it to do, and doesn't get up in my face doing it. Anything else is a bonus.

I care that it's successful, myself -- but not for me, because it will mean more support to give. Only because the fork is built in such a manner that people WILL benefit from using it rather than SMF. It'll be simpler healthier to use. So it's desirable to have as many people as possible use it.

The software you're talking about is Mambo. It's still fairly known, I believe they've ported many of Joomla's features back to the fold.

You know what?
Feline has said too much crap about me in my back.
She deserves that this topic is made public. So here it is.
Now you can republish my replies to her over there, and she can't argue that they're "private messages" (yeah, keep going, nobody will notice your censorship issues.)

Feline: "Any other copyright that linked to the SMF copright is destroy by aeva if it's true what I have read..."

She hasn't read ANYTHING, she's just being a cunt at that point.
Seriously, WHO ever said that of Aeva or Aeva Media?

Also, who is this Autopilot who claims he's using AeMe 2.1 but isn't registered here?



Now to hartiberlin... You're an interesting case.
Playing in both teams, right?

Aren't you ashamed of promoting SMF Gallery? Didn't you read my comments about vbgamer?

May I ask you why you've been using Aeva Media AT ALL at some point?

And this?

Of course the one release that 'fixes' your problem, and you don't have time to install it... What's your problem exactly?
More than that -- my fix actually removes my copyright code. You should be HAPPY that I'm not bothering my customers with more and more copyrights. You should be happy that there are developers who are concerned about "selling out", and would rather refund someone when it's really getting too complicated, than look like someone who'd do anything to keep your money. I don't care about money! Right? I'm happy that I'm still making some, and if I didn't get any, I'd probably stop work on AeMe entirely, but I'm not asking anyone for it.

It's also interesting that you should claim you precisedly "offered money" for me to fix your problem, when you never did! Or you claim that AeMe doesn't support watermarking when I gave you two weeks ago the steps to do it!

I never said no to helping you modify the template. I only said I wouldn't do it for money! There's a DIFFERENCE! And as far as I know, YOU stopped updating me on what you were trying to do. What, did you expect me to just guess what you wanted, rework the layout and send it to you and ask if everything's okay? No. So I figured that you understood my hints and applied them and you were happy with them.

Would you rather send me money to praise me? Is that it? You pay vbgamer45 $80 for his crapshoot (SMF Gallery + video 'plugin'), of course he can afford to help you with a quick rewrite ahah... Although you pretty much know in advance that his work will suck (his "layouts" are probably the most obviously BAD part of his work, given that it immediately shows to the user and you don't have to dig into his dirty code.)
So -> $80 for him, $20 for me and you're complaining that I'm not doing your template rewrite when (1) it's not my job, you paid for AeMe, not for YOUR AeMe, (2) I actually offered to help FOR FREE.

Well, let me guess... You're a jerk, too!

Well... What THINGS you can find when you're looking!

http://portamx.com/topic_2126.msg12132.html#msg12132

spoogs, you should have told me about it.
I would have made this topic public much earlier, just to make things clear.

Seriously, what a jerk she can be! Accusing me of attempting to sell AeMe by planting bugs into the free version! Hello!! I DON'T CARE ABOUT MY SALES! How many times will I have to say it?!
And she's trying to give "corporate talk" eh! Well, when you're trying to be corporate, you start by avoiding to put the blame on others and say they're thieves! You start by not being a jerk, and making sure you're not going to bullshit everyone!

*Weird*
I actually thought I did post it back here but now that I look around I don't see it... must have stared in quick reply and forgot to hit post.

No problem.

Feel free to keep me up to date if someone mentions this topic (which should hopefully happen :P) over there!

I've been sent this file... Supposedly it fixes hook problems within SMF2 RC4.
Aeva Media isn't using hooks, but portaMx is, so that's probably a fix for her problems. You know, the problems she blamed on *me*, calling me names etc...

Such a fine lady.

Anyway, I'm attaching the file below.
Posted on 30 November 2010 à 17h01

Okay... I've looked into this file and, hmm... It's doing something I'm already doing in our fork's hook code... i.e. properly save permanent hooks into the database, rather than all current active hooks. Funny though, they're using one extra database query for that. Waste of server resources... They could have done it our way -- keep at all times a list of both registered and unregistered hooks, and just manipulate the unregistered list when adding a non-permanent hook. Uh.

Anyway, I don't think this patch would fix anything in this case.

Supposedly that patch and the first PortaMx v0.990 patch fixed an issue between SMF 2.0 RC4/SimpleSEF/PortaMx and I suppose any other software that uses hooks. It did not fix the PortaMx/AEVA problem until she also implemented the the 2nd PortaMx v0.990 patch.

Well, that fix presumably is the one she documented in their Mantis install...

Yes, that is the one.
