  Oh for crying out loud...Emerald DID cause a DDoS attack, which is a 
CRIME. It also collected information about users that it shouldn't have. 
Those are facts that LL is aware of. It's a dangerous piece of software 
and has no right to connect to the grid now. I used to use Emerald, and 
not many people advocated it more than me, but now I won't touch it 
because I know it's dangerous. LL did the right thing, and I'm impressed 
that they had the guts to do it at all. There was nothing personal or 
political about it. I do hope that LL will learn from the drama though, 
and get their act together with viewer work in general.

End of story. Go find another TPV and get on when your life. Most TPVs 
have the same feature set as Emerald now anyway, like temp uploads and 
useful radar.
