  1. 78MB is all? Whats wrong with them. It just doesn’t feel right unless I’m downloading 100MB at the minimum. One day we can have fonts that are 100MB download. Simply awesome!

  2. @ Cubert

    Only the worthy are allowed into the mysteries of the Java. Understanding of the numerics of versioning is merely one way to determine who is ready and who still must learn the sound of one bean brewing. Perhaps you have still to take the first step of a pilgrimage to Redwood Shores?

  3. How many times can I say it for the new people???? THE SIZES THERE ARE FOR THE STANDALONE INSTALLER! Jeeze, quit bitching about lost space when you don’t even know what you are downloading…

  4. @rick — The USAA@home has worked fine for me on SL (all versions) for months… and on Safari.

    What kind of error are you having? USAA started being lot more picky about scans and resolutions right around the same time. Correlated, but not causal.

    Also, @psidoc — new Safari versions work just fine. I remember the time when I needed FF — but that’s past.

    Three cheers for USAA.

  5. ever since i installed SL usaa deposit@home has not worked for me on any browser. When i upload the image, the image doesn’t show where you have to crop it. USAA couldn’t even help. I think this update fixed the problem, but won’t know for sure until I deposit paycheck
