AIM changed their protocol again about two weeks ago, and Trillian released a patch back on Feb 11th the day it happened. But apparently, AIM changed something else today which causes Trillian to crash if the AIM/ICQ module is loaded. But the pie-rats out there don't have access to the members area to download the patch, so there's been tons of people in #trillian today making up any stopry they can to try to get actual paid members to send them the patch. One guy said his DNS server was down and that he couldn't access the page, so someone suggested he wait till it comes back up, and he left before anyone told him the IP address of the site or it would have been more interesting. :P Another guy just now said he "stumbled" upon pro, and that he didn't know how he got it without paying for it (the only two ways are A) illegally or B) by having been a beta tester), and then he went on to say he was high that night and "accidentally" downloaded it and installed it and found a serial for it. :P There's been a steady stream of them. Saying they can't afford it (Then use the free version...), saying they lost their password (Lost password link on member login page, link to mail if other problems...), and all sorts of other things. All in all it's fairly entertaining to see what they'll come up with next. :D

I have the free version and it popped up a little thing for me to download it today...

?


If you use the free version excessively, then yeah, it pops up a dialog suggesting you buy Pro.

The latest patch for the free 0.74 is Patch D and is available on the main page of the site.


no...not the thing to buy the Pro trillian...
for the patch when it was messing up today....heh.


AH, I see. I never see those since i usually grab updates the day they come out. :D

Good day to update though. :P


doesn't matter, the patch has already hit kazaa
(I don't use trillian, but I know people who do and who haven't paid for it)


I didn't say it mattered, just that it's funny. :D

And it is stopping the less intelligent among the pirates, as they obviously haven't noticed they could get it that way. :) But of course, it is all a matter of time for any piece of software before someone cracks it or makes the current available.
