Dearest Aimoo Member,

This email reaches you for the purpose of letting you know what exactly happened since the upgrade of version 8.0.1 on November 12, 2007. As you know, Aimoo is facing the biggest challenge since the release of Aimoo version 8.0.1, unstable program and severer, so many glitches and problems and so on. All these problems worry Aimoo staff a lot. So far there are still so many glitches waiting to be addressed. We have done our utmost to revert Aimoo back to the glory as six years ago. But as a result, we just screw up everything. We have to admit that the upgrade is frustrating. Overall, we are really sorry that Aimoo owners and members have to go through all these problems before holidays with us.

During the past one month, Aimoo technological team stays up late to address all the problems step by step in order to offer you a more stable environment. The special service group is taking all their hands to offer assistance to all members who are driven mad to adapt to the new and unstable environment. But we are sure that all these work are worthy, because we know that you stand with us all the time.

To be honest, Aimoo have encountered a lot of big problems such as the error pages always bother you and the chat room didn’t work for you any more some time before the release of version8.0.1. There were a large number of threads and posts stocked in our old WEB system on a few servers. Some of our veteran members may got to know that our Aimoo servers couldn't stand anymore, if we do not make some changes, they will also be “crazy” and then collapse completely. That’ why we take a risk to upgrade.

What we have done is intended to make you feel at home but not destroy everything as some members mentioned. The great“ambition” to upgrade distracts our attention from the demands of our members.

In the process of data transfer, we do the stupid thing to just transfer your threads and replies to the new version, but not all your data including your customizations which you put all your hearts and soul into. Our data processing division is regret to what they have done.

We sincerely apologize for the upgrade has caused to you, and please have faith in us that we will get everything done perfectly in the near future.

Although you miss Aimoo version 7 a lot, it will not come back again. Because it cannot adapt to the new hardware environment.Please don’t be sad, we will make the current version 8.0.1 perfect for you. And it will be your warm home. Let’s together to make our home more comfortable. Your any comments or suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Hope all is well with you, your family and friends.

Best regards Aimoo

While the awful english is reason enough to mock this email, the fact that it forges the headers to look like my own email provider sent it makes it doubly despicable.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
