    I have been very fortunate to have a very hobbled Little Big Mining Log running until the most recent update. Now that they have changed the pos info, it will not work at all.

    I was hoping that some other program was available that replaces LBML. It was an awesome tool for miners, and will be much missed.

    Its not like it's dead lol. Your best bet is the official forum for updates, a quick search found this where the creator chimes in: http://www.mininglog.com/forum/read.php?12,2208,2222

    Ido will either patch the program to take account of MA's change (as he's done before) or MA will reverse the unnecessary addition of a word to the position generated by pressing "P". They'll probably do that just after Ido has patched his program ….:rolleyes:

    Thank you so much for this. I really thought LBML was done, I forgot about the forums. Mine has not auto detected for a while, but P has worked up to now. I have some hope.

    All that changed is the textual format of waypoints in chat, which requires a tiny adaption in the parsing routine of any third-party software that uses it. A few minutes to do, maybe half an hour to roll out an update. If they are slow to implement it, it means the developers have moved their focus elsewhere. As most of these tools are not commercial products, there is little in terms of leverage to complain. Can only wait until someone comes around to doing it, or gets convinced to open-source it at last.
