I have been an XBMC user since it's inception years ago on my original XBOX.
The biggest thing about XBMC has always been the fact that it was Open Source and 100% Free, and without Advert.
The sudden addition of advertisements is IMO the tell tale signs of the beginnings of a closed system, and I do not agree with it.

I can't believe everytime I have started XBMC to watch a Movie or a show in the last week I've had to hear some BS about Mikey1234, or about repos being deleted. The entire thing is fing ridiculous. The entire lot of you need to grow the f up.

Mr Data, is that an ad on your XBMC machine?.

We hate ads, We hate ads, We hate ads. We're going to keep headbang till the ads are gone.

I don't know mate, GA has been taken out of most addons so maybe that's it? I would suggest asking on the correct forum though. That is a hub addon so they will be able to help you out the best.

Yeah I was talking out of my arse mate. Lost the plot there for a few days with lots of irate posting. Mikey banned me from xbmctalk. To be honest I always thought the Mashup addon was an oversized piece of crap so I'm not bothered about that. Also 90% of Mikey's addons are in fact rubbish. But there's one addon...just one that I love. If the website changes and the addon gets borked then I'm shagged.

To combat this I started learning Python over at codeacademy.com. I got to 40% and got up the next day but the first bit was "Functions" and just couldn't get back into it so maybe it'll come back to me. Good win today whuf eh? Apparently we were rubbish though!
