They've changed his voice to a higher pitch (he used to speak in a much deeper, sleazier voice, kind of like Macho Man Randy Savage) and they've made him look like a homosexual. No offence to homosexuals, but that's not the right look for Duke.

It's a fully functioning, everything-you-could-possibly-want system, so I'm happy to give it away to save people from having to write a similar system from scratch.

The only thing holding me back is the cycle of security patches I'll no doubt find myself in once the bad guys start analysing my code.

I'm not a security expert — I code for fun — so I'm not totally confident I'd be able to spot security issues even if I analysed my code myself.

What would you do if you were in my shoes? How do I get my software out there in the least painful way possible?"
