    Yeah, I guess I'm not the only person that finds it odd that after you install CF any other FE you have running dies on you...makes you wonder...

    Any mods in this forum?
    I guess back in "the good old days" an ad like this would not go on being uncommented.

    Another thing. Why on earth would anyone in their right mind take up on this offer?
    OK! its a big discount, but why throw your money out the window?
    I mean SD v2 is around the corner. The latest installer is stable as can be, not to talk about startup time.
    Heck I am not taking up on this offer, heaven knows I really should. Living in Europe, so I will not have navigation for my SD v2. Some would maybe call this stupidity. For me it is hanging in with one FINE piece of software.
    If I don´t remember it. It never happened

    Even thought the software is sold in the store, this is a website specific thing. You can't get the deal through the store...so it should be canned...

    The primary area of support is on the main Streetdeck Forums. However, I wouldn't say that the Mp3Car forums don't get any attention.

    I admit I dont use SD mainly because of the lack of real navigation for the UK and like I said I based my purchase on the sound quality having been a big user of Freedrive for so long the jump was not that big. ( I'm a big AV fan )

    Any way - thought I would point it out to those that where chuffed off seeing as we are a community not to cheese people off.....

    From wikipedia...
    "Drinking the Kool-Aid"
    The earliest known use of the term in its figurative, non-literal context (that is, outside descriptions of people actually drinking real Kool-Aid), is from a 1987 quote about former Washington, D.C., mayor Marion Barry in the Washington Post.[3][4]

    The term is derived from the 1978 cult suicide in Jonestown, Guyana. Jim Jones, the leader of the Peoples Temple, persuaded his followers to move to Jonestown. Late in the year he ordered his followers to commit suicide by drinking grape-flavored Flavor Aid laced with potassium cyanide. A camera from inside the compound shows a large chest being opened, clearly showing boxes of both Flavor Aid and Kool-Aid.[5] There is also testimony from criminal investigators at the Jonestown inquest stating that there were "cool aid" [sic] packets there.[6] It is unknown whether these are a reference to the Kool-aid brand packets from the trunk, or simply a generic use of the more popular brand for the product. In what is now commonly called the "Jonestown Massacre", a large majority of the 913 people later found dead drank the brew. (The discrepancy between the idiom and the actual occurrence is likely due to Flavor Aid's relative obscurity, compared to the easily recognizable Kool-Aid.) An earlier usage than 1987 can be attested at least as early as 1982 in the film "The Slumber Party Massacre" by Amy Holden Jones. In the scene where Valerie 'Val' Bates prepares Kool-Aid, she offers a glass to her sister and says "As the famous Jim Jones once said: 'should have been drinking Kool-Aid'".

    The saying "Do not drink the Kool-Aid" now commonly refers to the Jonestown tragedy, meaning "Do not trust any group you find to be a little on the kooky side," or "Whatever they tell you, do not believe it too strongly."[7] Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly is famous for using the term in this manner.[8]

    Having "drunk the Kool-Aid" also refers to being a strong or fervent believer in a particular philosophy or mission — wholeheartedly or blindly believing in its virtues.[9][10]

    Well even the word 'stupid' is used to describe something hip or cool. Damn Americans.
