Comment: Card Hunter is better (Score 1) 131 131

Just as a heads up. The browser-based (Flash) game Card Hunter is better and is incredibly charismatic and fun. It's also free to play and not pay-to-win. It is like someone worked out what game my brain would like the most and made it.

You can pay to get more treasure and to do special quest maps, and the quality is astronomical for a flash-based program.

Penny Arcade also agrees with me about it being awesome!

+ - Self-publishing a contraversial e-book->

Evildonald writes: My father is publishing a book that is too hot to publish in his home country. He will be exempt from prosecution as long as the book is not published or is directly for sale in the state that it is discussing.

We will be initially publishing on Amazon and Barnes and Noble e-book, but I am concerned that they might bow to legal pressure (whether it has jurisdiction or not) and stop sale of his book.

To protect ourselves, and to have a fallback, what other services are there out there for selling your own e-book? Are there e-publishers that are militantly resistant to legal takedowns? Is there an open-source project that has been made to self-publish reliably?

Please help my dad.

I don't see how this ruling isn't unconstitutional at least. Anyone who thinks this fine isn't excessive should be declared insane.
