Re: bbCheckerII 1.6 RC-3

I've downloaded and installed it. Aside from "reliability" is there some other option, or feature I should be checking in general?

Re: bbCheckerII 1.6 RC-3

I do notice that PM in both 1.6 and RC-1 that when I get a new PM message it is not in the foreground as MODAL...

Not sure that is should be MODAL, but maybe at least be in the FOREGROUND till I ignore it or otherwise do something else.

Re: bbCheckerII 1.6 RC-3

rc-1 has.
changes are easier to specify in adjectives than in functional changes:
-reliability
-speed
-smaller code
-improved timing
-corrected logical errors

and, hopefully, this is last pre-release for 1.6

as always, any errors found, please do report.

Re: bbCheckerII 1.6 RC-3

and still, stability errors.
seems that the new error system is not trustable as it always fails somewhere.

currently, the buddylist does not populate. that does not happen all the time but been like that for an hour already...

Jooel,

Just d/l'ed RC-1..

Open up Buddies and see none..

Go to the main UBB Section and there are at least six registered people on-line right now.

Went back and checked and they are there. I guess it takes a few moments for the list to populate..

I went to do some work via vpn and it did do as expected but when came back, buddylist was empty.

so, rc-2 will also have a console if error found.
this is to find if my suspections are correct that kix does not update error on function but it needs to reset that itself...

Dates and Times are different then the ones when the files are collected as to what they "SAY" the time is on them.

The file collection time vs the actual time appears to be something like 3 hours off (If I remember correctly - I kinda just forgot about it and haven't thought too much about it since.)

Re: bbCheckerII 1.6 RC-3

Yeah.. I think so, as I said, I would have to re-check as I don't recall the details anymore.

It is currently 00:15 on -8 timezone here in California

It shows as 09:15 there in Netherlands which is where I assume KiXtar.org is located. So those times appear to be correct as the time stamp I see in the post I just did is 09:10

So, not sure if there is a time problem or not.

Maybe I'm crazy and lost [Confused]
