Would someone care to say what FEMA is? Is it something the whole world would know about except me or what?
At a guess, a condom for women? Or a Finnish fish dish served up in the Nokia canteen? A person of indeterminate gender?

Sorry, I was pointing out that on an international platform like this, not everyone has the same cultural references. It was meant to be ironical and funny.
Of course, I had already looked it up myself.

Heh, really. But it does make for a good excuse for all the mess that seems to be the rule with them :-(.

Easier to be a victim than just fix the problems.

Yeah, frustration reaching disgust, VERY sad to say.

Cynicism based on observation :-). The proof is when the problems are solved and excuses quit being given. Excuses are cheap, results not so much so :-).

At this point, and I really hope I am wrong, I do not have good feelings about the future with nokia involved. The community might be able to pull it off but my doubts about nokia's sincere interest continue :-(.

Every time I install something not officially blessed by nokia and have to click on their warning that it may cause horrors to happen since it isn't from nokia, I just have to laugh. How about rather than putting that with everything not by nokia (that would make seeing it a rarity), they promise ONLY when you install their stuff that it will be perfect and never create a problem of any kind. I find that message just a bit obnoxious. Silly would be an apt description to anyone but a lawyer or management .
