Especially with the better mods fans have made. I'm currently addicted to the Caveman2Cosmos mod. You start out in 50,000 BC not even knowing language yet. It's under continuous development and improvement, so I'm practicing up on my coding and modding skills in hope of being able to contribute.

I've seen it. Not a lot, but occasionally. Someone saying (seriously, not sarcastically) they don't want a large share of computer users to use Linux. Some say they really like being in a semi-exclusive little community. Others fear the whole Linux experience will get dumbed down to fit lowest common denominator of user, missing the point that FOSS let's anyone who really wants to make the software as simple-to-use or complicated as they want.

I just went through and checked those registry settings on a laptop with a default Windows 7 SP1 install, and that's how they're already set, except for the built-in administrator account, which on Windows 7 is disabled by default, so any other setting is meaningless. Maybe it was different before SP1, I didn't have a Win7 machine then.

Bryan with a y is gay and would get along perfectly with bmo because of your obsession with balls.

Bryan with a Y is my mother's maiden name and a perfectly valid spelling of the Irish name. It's the same name as Brian, Brien, or any other spelling and is named after the first high king of Ireland. Furthermore, I'm gonna say Anonymous Coward is gay because AC is short for, oh, say, Anally Content.

An anonymous reader writes "I've been involved in a group of programmers working together with some new coding technology in "hack-a-thon" sessions. Everyone in the group contributed code and ideas to the project. I was not paid in anyway for my work or services, nor do I believe was anyone else. Now it appears that a venture capital group as taken an interest in the project and is offering to buy it. As I have no agreement signed with the guy the VC is talking to, it seems like I've been cut out of the loop. Do I have any recourse here? I want the project to succeed, but don't want to work hard to make someone else rich."
