It does use a Java applet, which, naturally, takes a little bit to load. It only does this once per session, though. Also, since you never did ask for support, I can't dismiss the very likely possibility that you simply did not do as you were instructed to do in the DIY Instructions. Namely,
Code: Select all

If you are installing this MOD with EasyMOD, you will need to manually upload HttpRequestor.class with the BINARY transfer mode enabled.
It's also hard to uninstall.
That's like saying that it's hard to do addition 200x times. In point of fact, I wouldn't call either "hard" if you know addition. It may be tedious and banal busy-work, but not hard. If you don't know addition, however, doing addition 200x times is going to be no harder than doing it once.
Similarly, installing or uninstalling a MOD may be tedious. To say it's hard, however, suggests to me that the problem you experienced had nothing to do with MODs but instead, everything to do with your experience uninstalling MODs. ie. uninstalling MODs is only "hard" if you don't know what you're doing.
This MOD isn't particularly long. Yes, it's longer than other MODs, but there are also a good deal other MODs that it's shorter than.
So, in any event, I am sorry your experiences with this MOD weren't all that you had hoped they would be, but... well, I can't help but question your attribution of blame. How many of the problems you experienced were due to your not reading the instructions very thoroughly or to what is likely a lack of experience in uninstalling MODs in the first place? I don't know and, now, I don't suppose we'll ever know.
