    Attached are 20 questions for OA users and readers of the Hints on using OA thread. I can use these results to target future testing and hints on low usage features. If you wish to include your OA version / build that could be helpful. :D

    Hi, I'm running v2 on two snapshots, and v 3.1.0.16 on a third snaphot of FDISR. I'm using the v3.1 beta in standard mode on a daily basis, and have v2 to retreat to if need be. :)

    Thanks, we need more voters to see some significant patterns. Some surfacing but it's too early to draw conclusions.

    How are you? Why are you not up to a higher beta?

    When I last was there they were at 18/19 kind of lost track.

    I'm using latest beta, usually in Advanced Mode, sometimes and when there's people in Standard Mode (otherwise, some get crazy :D)

    Hi Escalader, I'm not a beta tester. Mike was testing the updater, and offered to send .16 to a few folks so I raised my hand. At least now I can use v3. I wasn't able to use .190. :D

    Hi twl845:

    Ahhh that explains it. What happened to you opn 190? I was able to use it but your setup is no doubt different.

    Yes, that's no doubt true. Thanks for you vote, it's a bit surprising to see some of the features that are "rarlely" used. I'm thinking that this is the point you raise some in standard mode may not "see" the full set of features.

    Still need more votes to get a better picture.

    It's a long story. For one thing, the computer would be unresponsive coming out of Standby. I would have to do a hard shutdown and reboot. It became so frequent I had to abandon V3. This V3.1 is looking OK. (now);)

    That's good. We all await the next formal release.

    Coincidentally, Mike just released a public beta .20

    Using the latest public Beta on older XP machine. Ideally I'd like to use it on my main Vista set-up but it's still conflicting with Defensewall which I'm afraid I'm somewhat attached to.

    Any idea's if there are any plans to resolve this in an upcoming build? Ilya has advised in his opinion it's an OA issue.

    Cheers
