  • Re: The things people do for money...

    Well so the normal GPL has a "loophole": if you take a GPL'd piece of software that does task A, then turn it into a web service that does task A, you can charge people for going to your server and performing task A without distributing the code to the modifications you made - you're not distributing the software itself, ...

But WTF is up with that game engine? Who the even makes something that only runs at 640x480? That would have been stupid 10 years ...

  • Re: More stuff I couldn't post while at WTF-Inc

  • Re: Ridges on virtual keyboards on tablets

    [quote user="joelkatz"][quote user="blakeyrat"]It's consistent. Real keyboards have finger-positioning-bumbs, so they are in the image.
