You guys and gals may have noticed some bad blood between infiniti and me. I highly regret this is happening and I want this resolved.
This is what I see going on here.
I worked 4 months and hundreds of hours on the creation of my jukebox3 image with many real hacks that changed the inner guts of Audrey.
The only other person on this board who can realy judge what I have done is davinci. He was at least 6 months ahead of me with his MQNX image, however MQNX is totally different in structure than mine.
infiniti took jukebox3 and added the following features, calling it inspired by me, but called it his own new image and shows off the image in full as it was made by me, that way confusing the users of this board.
These are his changes in my jukebox3 image:
1. he did a hack with shelf to resemble windows and that's great, because on the fly it seems to resolve network problems that neither davinci or myself could resolve
2. he added picframe, icq, date & time on autostart, nice but no hacks
3. boot time reduced, nice but not very elegantly working in my opinion. I did it before him and decided not to use it and introduced a new flash intro
4. phjuke, that in my opinion belongs on the share with the MP3 files, is no hack, but is of course not a problem either
5. pterm on channel selector, which isn't new either and in my opinion annoying because I use the knob for the 3 F keys it represents and to cycle through CallerID.
Compared to what I had done to develop this image it's nice but except for the shelf hack it would have been only 15 minutes work for me on top of hundreds of hours done before. I wouldn't dare to do the same with MQNX and call it a new image.
And it took me a while to have him explain his single real hack with shelf, but instead he gave some information from QNX.com that did not explain it, but did bring me on the right course to figure it out myself.
If he had said I used the jukebox3 image and addded these features, his web page would be a lot less impressive, while taking full credit for his changes. I would not have had a single problem when he had done so. Hey, this is a free country, so why not.
Also he critizes me for bringing out 2 new images (USB1 and Steroids) while he did a minor update himself, what is ok of course. But how can someone critisize me for this? Now I have to maintain 3 images and that keeps me pretty busy and I like to do it without someone else breathing in my neck.
Now he hopes he or someone else brings out better images than mine and I hope the same for the benefit of all of us, but his tone is pure negative.
In the meantime when asked he said he wanted to see my USB1 improved before touching it and he singles jukebox users out to advise adding his features to my images. Why not advise others too?
I will applaud him for making his own and better image than mine. I applaud him already openly for the shelf hack and the screen saver/picframe hack he did himself. But it bothers me too seeing him answering questions about my images that are answered already on my web site and therefore making this board more and more confusing for its users.
You are the judge. If I'm overly sensitive, tell me and I shut up. If you think infinity is doing a lot of successful pr for himself, but doesn't do really as much as he pretends, say so too and he should shut up.
I am active on this board for fun and it should be fun for all of us and there should be no bad blood in any shape or form present.
