Nasty, nasty license. GPL used to cause lawyers to run around with the flamethrowers, then they learned all the nuances and all was well. AGPL? Now they run around with flamethrowers and nukes. As they should...
The entire source tree for a git repository is in git clone, with the magic sauce of "--mirror" to get the full repository. This is an advantage for open source distributed teams, but not a great methodology for closed source development like this was.
Quite simply, the main feature Microsoft has been touting to advertisers is the ability to detect who is in the room and target ads accordingly. The gold mine is not in Kinect for games, its for the TV/Video/Music/Netflix/Hulu consumption and the "big data" of being to tell that there is a 30-35 white male (recognized and tracked via Bing), 30-35 white female (Not logged in but we know her profile), and another 25-30 female guest that we have an 90% confidence is person Y who has a bing account. Lets target Ad X, Y and not Z.
MS will put Nielsen to shame with all that mineable data. There will be still be people who leave the MS eye on all the time, at least now you have the option to unplug it.
Why is this not LGPL? (Keep the "viral" self contained to the library), or GPL (Application level viral-ability). AGPL? That "infects" everything (Airborne meta-viral!)

Uh, what the hell?
FULL DISCLOSURE: These are products I created and operated by my company. But very relevant.
The term MUD tends to harken back to an earlier time before 'puters had graphical horsepower of any note. But the reality is, online text-based games come in all varieties, and the one's we operate are in a league all their own. More significantly, they are still serious ongoing commercial efforts. If you want to see what a MUD can be when it's been in continuous development, expansion for decades, then check out:
GemStone IV, which began its life as a sequel to GemStone ][ (then called GemStone III just to confuse everyone) first came to existence on the online service GEnie. Eventually it moved to CompuServe, AOL, Prodigy and others. When online services went the way of the doodoo bird, we moved them to the internet machine. DragonRealms is somewhat younger than GemStone, but same sort of history. I began work on it shortly before forming my company Simutronics, something like 27 years ago.
Despite having worked on lots of other types of games, such as mobile titles, and working on other PC/Mac/Linux games of a much more graphical variety now... these text based games remain the corner stone of Simutronics.
I got the SEIKI 4K TV from TigerDirect not long ago. I hooked it up as a 4th (!) monitor. It dwarfs the 3 30" dells I have next to it since, well... it's frikin 50"!
Despite being a lot bigger the pixel density is roughly the same as the 30" Dells which are only 2560x1600. The SEIKI 4K is rocking, obviously the 4K resolution of 3840x2160.
So is it cool?
The fundamental problem, of course, is that the refresh rate is only 30 hertz. This is driven by the fact that current 1.4 HDMI spec can't push faster than that. So the screen has a soft pulsing. It also tears badly on fast moving things, but this may be a separate issue not related to the TV, not sure. Been messing with my video card to try and solve that. VSync doesn't seem to help, so maybe it is the TV.
Color reproduction is just
The bottom line is, don't get this TV unless you are a crazy early adopter who just likes cool toys and throws money away to do it. Wait until next year when HDMI 2.0 comes out and more monitor-class 4K units come onto the market. Then, yes... if you are a resolution junkie like I am, get one! Because even in this early form, the promise is quite clear.
Oh, and it impresses friends. Very important point.
No, the wp-admin folder is rather hard coded.
Saw this on facebook the other day, seems very relevant:
You do realize that the SRB bands were completely redesigned following Challenger? Not just add a third O ring and be done?
A retainer band around the pins, longer pins, changing the mating feature (Clevis and Tang) from a U to more an S to further prevent gases from escaping. And joint heaters for cold weather.
Create a federal patent court circuit with knowledgeable judges, and be specific to exclude the eastern district of Texas for systematic bias.
Further, the US Constitution doesn't grant the federal government immigration authority. It is an "Implied Power" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Implied_powers
Substitute Michael Dell for Sam Zell, and Dell Company for Tribune Company. Here lies the future...
Never trust guys with names that end in 'ell'
I cited this comment in a letter to my constituent senators. Makes much better sense than what Hatch is spewing.
Thanks for yet another business example of why you don't put all your eggs in one basket. I.e. Zynga -> Facebook relationship, or sort of similar situation in Chicago with Areawide Cellular and Cingular. At least the family that ran Areawide Cellular also ran nursing homes. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2003-04-28/business/0304270544_1_wireless-carriers-cingular-wireless-at-t-wireless
I am sure you also tried to sell Dish/Direct for that same commission hit as a diversification measure. Problem is the carriers and satellite have no intrest in developing agent businesses as a franchisee/ franchiser would.
Just being in the "agent" business is at most a decade business run.
