***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

Technology can suck ass sometimes

Slowly but surely, I am putting on all the programs I normally use on the new computer I just built. I've decided along the way to upgrade a few programs. Bad idea for the most part. Newer is not always better (as it states very plainly on OldVersion.com - a site I could not live without).

New version of AOL Instant Messeger: Sucked. I use a version that's 3 versions behind. Runs much better, faster and does the same job.

New version of CuteFTP, really sucked. A lot of crap added for no reason whatsoever. Does nothing but slow the program down and just make it confusing as hell. Thank God I kept my original paid copy of 3.0.

New version of WinAMP 5.0, sucked beyond belief. I hated this thing from the moment I installed it. Yeah, it's free so you can't complain I guess... but sheesh the older versions (I use 2.91) is so much faster and just easier to use. The new version put everything in a different place and put in a "fade" that I could not shut off when switching between MP3's. Screw that.

The lesson to be learned here is this: If you have programs that do the job you want, the new version most likely won't do the job any better.. it will probably do nothing but slow your computer down.

Old WinAMP rules.. :-)
