EMB is slow. Patience, my young padawan.

Weird characters are showing up in my message.

Your messages may occassionally have some encoding errors. This is a side effect of Chinese character support, unfortunately. If you find a workaround, tell us via our SourceForge project page.

I found another problem. Can you fix it?

We are not currently providing support for EMBclient. Luckily, EMBclient is 100% open-source. If you find that something isn't working, try asking one of your geeky friends to tinker with the source code (or do it yourself!)

Caveat Emptor

1. Note that when submitting MCQ responses, clicking on a letter automatically submits the response. There is no "undo"; you can, however, change your mind by clicking on one of the other options. If submitting a text response, you'll have to click "submit" after typing so that EMB receives your response.

2. The file "EMBcache.db" stores saved messages (among other things). If you delete or move this file to a different directory, you will not be able to access your starred messages while offline.
