Flash 10 broke me

Looks like the newest Flash 10 (10,0,12,36 to be precise) broke the last.FM widget embedded at the top of the page. Hopefully, it will eventually be fixed by either last.FM or Adobe (won’t hold my breath). I’ll just leave it up for now.

However, this is what happens when you rely so much on propriety software. You are at their mercy. It only gets fixed when they say it gets fixed. Wouldn’t it be nice if an open source option came into vogue?

Don’t write in and tell me how many great options there are. The reality is that Flash is on nearly every computer (at least those running Windows and Mac OS, but likely Linux too). Until there is something that can challenge this dominance, few are going to develop for it.

However, I shouldn’t let last.FM off the hook too easily. So far, they are the only system broken as far as I can tell.

So, until then, I sit back and what for the king to decide what to do with me. Shall I be spared or OFF with my head!
