I find one of the most frustratingly irritating things about Microsoft
software is that it constantly nags the user to upgrade. Maybe not as bad as
Adobe (but then Adobe has gone completely off the rails in terms of software
quality anyway), but still very annoying, which is what has put me in this
The funny thing about patching working software is more often than not it
will actually break the software, which is why it should be so seldom done,
rather than almost weekly as seems to be the case with The LIVE IM.
Anyway, every time I try to assign my user an image after the last update, I
get the message "The file you selected is not a valid image file. Please
choose another file.". THat would be good and all, except the definition of a
JPG has obviously changed between these two versions. i only have JPG files
to test with and none of them will work now. All my images fire up i a
graphic application and the image I was using for my profile 15 minutes ago
will no longer work since the update. What could I possibly have done wrong
(other than follow MS advice and update to this splendid version)?
