    I'm curious about the text editors/diff apps people use. I've always used BBEdit (full version, legit of course) but there isn't any Windows version.

    (maybe I should start another thread, whoops )

    My call-home works perfectly -- the auto-installation of hacks feature it has works fine as well.

    Too bad pirates are missing out on that feature by removing it...oh well, more for me.

    I used Araxis Merge. Without going into any more detail two files in the admin directory are edited to basically remove the callhome functionality (which tends to not work in my legit vB half the time ).

    What diff app do you use?
    I used Delta
    It's some old DOS doodad that crashes when comparing /admin/forumpermission.php for some reason.
    Every time
    It only turned up the obvious license# diffs in /admin/index.php
    What diffs did you find?

    PM me if you don't think you should post them here.

    You have 3 URLs?
    Is that one installation on one domain with two redirects?
    That would be the only legal way with one licence.
