    Mr

    Ok, I'll add my $.02 here. Actually, since I'm in the top 3 donors to Guino I guess I'm adding a bit more than that! But in spite of my comparatively large donation, RR has been the biggest bang for my buck where my carpc is concerned. Since I've spent thousands on hardware without a blink, I can only humbly say, "Thank you, Guino"!

    Now, I do appreciate Guino's right to do whatever he wishes with RR. However, I do think this time-bomb approach is not the way to go. Personally, the last time I did any maintenance/update to my RR was back in 2007. The system has worked flawlessly all this time and I saw no need to change things. This new paradigm though would have caused me grief at least three times since then. My carpc is not setup to easily download and install new wares and this procedure would be a significant inconvenience. Add to that the fact that I'm not an early adopter and I like to see new versions tested before I upgrade, if ever, and this version is off my list.

    Surely, there can be a more stealthy registration / upgrade process created that ensures that dozens of copies of the download are not installed on multiple machines. I'm not sure that I even want/need to get the latest version for myself right now. But if I have to live with required manual updates, I would develop a script to do this for me, just as the "bad guys" could do to circumvent the system, or they could just run a recent version without the security feature in it.

    This change hurts the installed base more than it hurts future software pirates and I urge Guino to reconsider its implementation.

    please guys, dont push to much, we already lost some good people, remember CdRsKuLL and his stolen skin, dinasty and the people so desperate to get his flashdeck skin that he just left it,also i haven't seen LS lately hope he is ok, i'll suggest to wait and see how it goes, we are not talking about a simple skin, or a simple plugin, this is the main core, and the main guy, so dont push to much, PLEASE!!, you must understand guino.

    I remember Dinasty did the same thing on flashdeck, crippled it severely promising an update,but it never happened. Now all that is left of flashdeck is "coming soon" in all the menu's. I think the reason people are expressing concern, they don't want to see this happen with RR. I don't think anyone has been too harsh here or pushy, we are all just giving our opinions. I don't want my skins used for profit either, and Carwings happens to be included in the newest installer. In my license terms of using the skin the first paragraph reads:

    "Skin is for private use only! Any commerical use is prohibited unless approved by the author. Upon installing and using skin you agree not to use the software for advertising, selling, or other profiteering activities including, but not limited to, using the software to sell your hardware. You are free to modify, distribute or add to the code as long as it does not infringe upon the terms above. This skin is distributed as "open source" and all code shall remain open source if you choose to use it in any way.."

    This has worked great so far for me. I know the community is growing but it's still a small world and I seriously believe if someone is trying to make money by selling the software, we as the main developers would know pretty quickly. Look at CdR for example, someone breached his agreement and that news spread like wildfire in hours.

    I guess what I am saying is that we are an honest crew here. I can understand a public release posted on the internet having a time limit, it makes sense for your protection Guino. What we really need is a private release to people who have made some sort of code contribution to RR that does not have the time limit in place. Developers of RR source, skins, plugin's, etc. should not be burdened with the countdown to meltdown. It's fair in the sense that if you want the no time limit version, you HAVE to make a contribution

    First of all, awsome job guino.... and yes yes.. i 100% agree with camino... besides, Mitch's ver. works fine as it is and it has almost everything what people want.. If you want more than that, then use quino's final and update it every 4 month to get the new goodies... I don't know what more people want for their carpc... It already can do more than what 90% users use anyway.. i wouldn't mind using quino's and do the update every 4 month just check out new toys for pleasure... by the way, i like to keep both quino's final and mitch's final ver. Is Mitch's ver. gone? I can't find the link. could someone post it please?

    This is a great idea. I would like to add though that it should include those that donate as well. I think it would give more people incentive to donate to the project that aren't programmers, like myself.

    G is there a command to make a Custom list highlight a particular item in the list, other than have to save a file with the number of the item at the front and then loadlist it?

    Guino has made a wonderfull program, that many of us couldn't do without. Now from a programming stand point I am all for the nessicary updates. I don't like debugging and providing tech support (on of the points of this forum), for a product that is out of date or already on the next release. When a problem arises, especially with newbees, the first recomendation is to update to the latest version. Unfortunatlly RR is not perfect. So I am going to take this as a friendly reminder to keep up to date. The worst that happens is RR works better.

    Have you tried using "SETLIST" ?

    It works on CL's.
