So, Party Poker did this big software upgrade yesterday, and they seem to have really fucked it up. There are a number of really major bugs, including crash bugs, and one bug where it can delete all the images in your "C:\Program Files" !! Fortunately I haven't been hit by these, but it motivated me to do a full backup of my hard drive. I wonder what's gonna happen with the problems. The users have no real legal recourse, but people are having problems where it crashes during a hand and they lose a bunch of money. It's a bit worse than your typical MMO updates. Usually Party will compensate people a bit. The image deleting thing is pretty horrific.
