YMMD! Add another one to the list of time machine users (if there was
one, that is). :D

Well, I've been using this 64Bit Adobe Labs Patch stuff for several
months now, and honestly I cannot complain. My browser crashed before I
used it, and it does now. Compared to the alternatives I have (assuming
I am almost *forced* using Flash in some ways in 2010) -- running
Windows or, OTOH, running FOSS and fiddling around, keep having audio
problems and all stuff of other annoyances -- I really appreciate the
Alpha release. I've seen software considered stable (for years) that was
much buggier.
