turq, another spiritual practice for you might be to stop trying to change, by 
various subtle methods, posters who post more than you'd like them to post. 
What happened to just ignoring them?! Whoops! I can see that my spiritual 
practice is to stop trying to change you ha ha.

Subject: [FairfieldLife] Software 'upgrades' as spiritual practice

All of this furor over Neo has reminded me that the world of mobile apps is 
just SO much more spiritual than the world of Web apps. Those who are bitching 
are missing out on this. 

Direct Update ("We're going to 'upgrade' your app without your permission the 
instant you log in") is SO much more Zen than Voluntary Upgrade ("We have a new 
version of our app...do you want to try it?). The latter invites people to dig 
their heels in, stick with the Old Familiar, and resist change. The latter 
enforces change. 

After all, if you can remember that there was a previous version of the app, 
you're just not Here And Now enough, are you?  :-)
