    Immediately after I put it up for download a critical issue was found.

    Still over 300 people downloaded it even though it said "BROKEN - DON'T DOWNLOAD" :wtf:

    Now that the issue is fixed I decided that it's better to release as a new version number to make sure everyone has the right version.

    Not necessarily so silly

    It's not so silly that 300 people downloaded it. If they were anything like me, they might curious to see just how it doesn't work and have a play. :laugh:

    For the record, I didn't see that broken version and only know about it from this article.

    Perhaps.... since it's still April.... they thought you were kidding? :D

    I concur with qubit though, sometimes curiousity wins and people would want to see in what way it was broken.
    qubit says thanks.
