A rant?

Today someone popped in to #synce and declared “is it me or is synce pretty much useless”. The guy then had a bitch about how everything but synce worked (“BUT NO, NOT SYNCE”) and shortly after left.

How rude.

If the guy had stayed around a bit longer I could have told him about some of the issues Moto Q users faced and the magic incantations needed to work around oddities in that variant of Windows Mobile. If he had other problems, I could have helped. Instead he chose to flame.

As someone who has contributed a lot of hours to helping users of SynCE (and even submitted the odd patch) its both sad to think someone thinks bad things about the project / team and also frustrating and angering that someone could be so rude to people that have spent a lot of time working out how to make it work at all.
