It's my understanding that the W2VJN fix is much simpler and that while it isn't perfect, it is something that most people can do without a problem.  I looked at his solution and W8JI's solution and decided 'JI's was more complicated than I was willing to do myself.   The W2VJN solution wasn't completely a no-brainer for me, but it was reasonable easy to do.   I think it is good enough.
