Running SMF 2.0 RC5 + PortaMX 1.0 RC4 + Aeva 2.10
 
Working fine with media like pictures (images) and YouTube embedding, but messes up my layout:
  • breaks UL and LI in the menu when using Internet Explorer 9
  • weirdly enlarges the fontsize in the menu and headings in Firefox
as soon as I embed an MP3 which Aeva handles with the JWPlayer.
 
Seems like the JWPlayer is not the right way to do the MP3's with. I don't see where I can change that. And I _do_ want to embed MP3 playing  IN the album. Please. :)

Well, JWPlayer is an MP3 player...

Yup.
As for the menu -- I'm not touching it again, just like the rest. You may wanna try Wedge when it comes out!

Ok. So I'll uninstall Aeva then. Too bad. Doesn't really feel "right" to pay for the commercial version because it would include support, to hear hours later that "you're not going to touch it".  But anyway. Have fun with the 'tenner'.

Its not a commercial version anymore. At 5$ it's a donation on exchange of which you get a few more features.

I love it when people think they're owned the two years of full-time work I spent on AeMe....

The $5 version is quite clear that it's 1-day access, and last I checked the $10 version says that it enables you access to the support board "without any guarantee of support"

Oh grow up. Who said that? Bottom line is that I could just as well used the free version, but since I don't mind to support and appreciate the work someone else put into it, I paid for the 2.10 version. My long-time experience with software producers, be it professional or 'semi'pro, are usually willing to help out if something is not working 100% as expected. Seems you're the odd one out. Good luck with that.

yeah, yeah,  yeah, everyone knows Nao is different because he works his arse off on software. Free software usually does not come with a guarantee of free support. You have to  rely on the kindliness of geeks which can be sporadic at best.

The difference is, people like Nao and myself are neither 'professional' nor 'semi-pro'. We are hobbyists, we do it for the love of doing it.

Support is actively a pain in our collective rear. We make things because making them makes us happy. Having to spend time trying to pander to the expectations of others does not make us happy.

The best way I can sum it up is as:
Sarah: Give me the child.
Jareth: Sarah, beware. I have been generous up 'til now. I can be cruel.
Sarah: Generous? What have you done that's generous?
Jareth: *Everything*! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for *you*! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me. Isn't that generous?
I got fed up trying to live up to the expectations of others, which is why I slowly stopped writing mods for SMF and when I learned the hard way of never writing anything for anyone else, to only write things I actually *want* to write. After all it's my free time I'm using to write things, surely I have a say in what I spend that time on?
