    New leak game?

    what's up with this new leak? this is unprecedented. before the leaks came out of no where but this one is pre-announced and it seems that several peeps have it and are running it. just wondering what has changed about the leak game?

    That's understandable cat. Good question. It may be a change for the better.
    I will agree it is unprecidented however it can be a good change. :fing02:

    Lame? In my eyes, it's awesome. We've already got a good idea of what the pros and cons are to the leak, and can decide whether we even want to waste time installing it. The folks who already have it are like the guinea pigs and are doing us a favor in a way by pre-testing it for us, and saving us an hour or two of our Saturday if there are any showstopper bugs.

    Example:

    let's say the leak was made available with no announcement, nothing. You go ahead and install it before going to the wildlife preserve for a day with the family. You plan on using the Storm's relatively nice cam for your picture taking needs, since your real digicam is an old HP 2.0MP thing (you're just not much of a photographer). So, .191 is all loaded, and out the door you go. You get there, try to snap a pic, and *BAM* - reboot time (well at least you get to look at the new loading screen again)

    Had the leak been released in the fashion this one is being released, you wouldn't have wasted part of the morning loading it to begin with.

    Having these "pre-leak" threads full of folks actually using the OS is doing us a favor, it gives us the same functionality as a "known issues" list.

    Isn't that part of the fun with leaks though? going through the trials & tribulations trying to figure out what changed, what works and of course what doesn't.... :haha:

    The reason for the prealert is that JL's full time job is a keyboard tech. He's looking to sell some more F5 keys this quarter. :lmao:

    I agree it's sometimes not a fun game but gets exciting. I dont mind someone checking it out first. Look at .154 I think it was a bust but probably some good files in there for hybrid. Moving forward no one I think, wants to leak a no good file.

    Just my 2 cents enjoy the game :-)
