Spugly Award™ for the Worst Palm OS Software Ever, July 2008
- The Spugly Award™ for the Worst Palm OS Software Ever was awarded to VersaMail.
- The Failed Turing Test Award for the Most Robotic Technical Support went to Paragon/Penreader Software.
- A Special Anti-Spugly Award was given to Dmitry Grinberg of PalmPowerups for COP (Chunk Over-lock Protector™), which was written during the meeting and mitigates the effects of one of Paragon/Penreader’s bugs on the group president’s wife’s Treo.
Thanks to the forum participants at 1src and our anonymous experts for their nominations. Note that, in response to demand for a general release of Chunk Over-lock Protector™, Mr. Grinberg issued the following statement:
It was a rough hack (made in an hour or so) just for that purpose. I do not think a wide distribution of it is needed or warranted.
