Yeah, until I learned that you can just go straight to the traditional control panel interface and skip through the tablet-PC nonsense.

In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, administrators already cannot create or modify a user account inside Control Panel. They have to make changes "in PC settings", which is code-word for "click here to open the tablet-PC nonsense".

Waterfall vs Agile. Waterfall, you get the spec, go and code. Agile you get lucky to code a couple of hours a day, the rest is ALL spec gathering, and then you stay up all night for the sprint right before you submit the code for user acceptance testing.

someone who's producing music, art, or literary works has probably had it drilled into them in school that plagiarism is wrong

So what can a composer of music do to determine whether or not he is accidentally infringing or plagiarizing? George Harrison got bit by this (Bright Tunes Music v. Harrisongs Music, the "My Sweet Lord" case).

If, on the other hand, their story, music, or artwork is original

Let me rephrase the question: How can someone starting out in the business determine what is original?

I am the wandering glitch -- catch me if you can.
