So Why Not? Version 17  en

You say what about V17? All of us know, or should know, that you do not go live with a new version of software without testing it first. Or waiting until the second or third hot fix before rolling the dice and uploading your site with the new version.

Look at all the features X5 has, unlike some others where separate programs that are added in. Great for us, nightmare for the programmers. Was it not long ago that we got responsive and 64bit versions? We have programs in engineering that cost between 5k and 30k, and sometimes there are more bugs than holes in a target at a shotgun tournament.

I’VE HAD ENOUGH! I’M GOING SOMEWHERE ELSE! You are? Ok, you won’t pulling any wool off of my sheep. I could be wrong but X5 seems to be the only program that does not have several tool bars over three or four sides of the screen, taking up room, and overwhelming my mind with what to do next. X5 has a unique work flow. So good luck!

WE HELPED CAUSE THIS PROBLEM! (Better put on my steel toe shoes.) Of course we did. “If I don’t have this new feature by tomorrow my wife is going to give birth, to two fully grow 6 year old alien twins, one blue and the other green. Then take pictures with the X5 logo and send it in to the National Inquirer and tell everyone it’s their fault.

Then there’s the “You’ve taken my money for the next year, so I want something now or I might go insane”! Come on, let’s get real. I’m not sure, but the last I checked several companies that I have services with demand you pay in advance. That’s today world, they have no patience either.

SO WHY NOT just post our problems with a screen shot or link if needed and get these bugs fixed. I would much rather have the people on the front line helping to fix bugs than apologizing for decisions made by others that they have no control over or have "a snowball in hell" chance of changing.

Think about it!

I get it, Donald. Unlike many others, I have had few problems with X5 (even the new version). I don't rely on the program for creating sites that I make income from though, so I understand that those who do can get frustrated. However, if they rely on having sites that work without issues, perhaps they need to use the services of a professional web design company.

I run two "hobby" sites and the one that is a bit more serious (my wife's Counselling site) is working well, gets 500 unique visitors a month with my limited knowledge of SEO and looks pretty good (in my opinion). It will be the last of my 3 sites to be changed to v17 once I feel it is ready to do so. The other two are already using it. Donald's comments about not rushing in to go live with a site using any new version are sensible and pragmatic.

Not sure about the National Enquirer though, Donald. Tweet it to your namesake, Mr Trump instead. Much more reliable and honest! :)

Thanks for the comments, I love you guys!

So here’s the deal. If you have a lot of problems with X5 toasting out and your computer locking up it may be caused by what’s know as a poltergeist. (Watch the movie from 1982 with Craig T Nelson and Jo-Beth Williams to understand fully.)

How to fix your problems. First, find a reliable Indian Shaman. Make sure he has a functional peace pipe. Then go down in a sewer and smoke some rope with the peace pipe after the shameman has blessed it. Take some really deep puffs and huff it down to the bottom of your lungs. Return to your computer and boot it up, then expel the smoke from the bottom of your lungs into the cooling fans at the front. Then you should see some supernatural “stuff” coming out the back and from the power supply. It this does not work repeat about 24 times and switch to technique number two.

Fix number two. Purchase a fine bottle of tequila with willie the worm (from the Soupy Sales Show) at the bottom. Tell willie that you love him and that you need help. Then open that puppy and swig it down, worm and all. Now go directly to sleep using TM™ to create an OBE. Then just think about your computer and you will fly right to it. You will be able to see where the polterguest is attached and remove it.

That’s it! And for the very, very small percentage of people who may not know what TM™ and OBE is.

TM™ stands for Transcendental Meditation although I prefer TCM, Trans Continental Mediation, might as well visit some nice places. OBE stands for Out of Body Experience.
