Awasu » Frustration

Someone recently said in the forums that "I know you get frustrated sometimes, but you really are appreciated."

Well, the appreciation is nice but you guys don't know the half of it! I've been pulling my hair out this past week working with a user who has reported a problem that is proving really hard to track down.

He's running Awasu 1.1.5 on XP on a relatively slow machine (600 Mhz) and is reporting that the UI is hanging for 5-15 seconds at a time. When I say hang, I mean that the Awasu main window goes blank or fails to refresh itself properly when you move other windows around in front of it. It also maxes out the CPU.

This problem started in 1.1.4 and doesn't seem to be caused by anything in particular (although opening a channel window seems to be a common cause).

I'm trying to get the 1.2 release ready but unfortunately this one is a show-stopper. If you are running 1.1.4 on a slower machine, please drop me a line even if you are not seeing this problem. If I can just blame it on something weird on his machine, I can pretend that it's not really a problem and get 1.2 out :-) :roll:

Happy holidays to y'all, by the way. I'm going to be pulling out what remains of my hair in the meantime... :cry:

Have your say
