    Stupidest Version Number Ever?

    So sure, have a point release. Sure. Or just spring an updated version on you like Firefox does. Or else prompt for a new update every single day no matter how many times you download it and restart, like Adobe Reader does. But this point release has to be the most ludicrous ever. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Sugarsynch.

    That release number makes sense to me... The 'version' is 1.9.47, build is 85531 and build date is 2012-02-03.

    Why bother with Sickipedia? Just watch a Tim Vine DVD and skip the middleman!

    Speaking of which... anyone see his winning joke?

    version numbers like that are the product of people who take software development far too seriously. I don't even think they are sufficiently caffeinated.
