That's beside my point, but downloads can be lent, too, on a variety of media.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Whether your games (IP) are pirated or not, once you get used to the speed and convenience of running them off a hard drive or SD card, why would anyone want to go back to swapping discs (that, in a household with a 3-year-old, often get lost)?
This sounds a lot like a book I read a few years ago:
To engineer is human: the role of failure in successful design By Henry Petroski
Heh. Yeah, that would surprise me, too.
I, for one, could hardly care less about an Apple tablet.
My employer blocks Bing but allows Google. I guess I'd be screwed if I had to use a Verizon Blackberry on my employer's network.
Fair enough... It still doesn't seem like the 'real' anniversary to me, but I can be pretty hard-headed about stuff like that.
Weren't many of us using (at least trying) Firefox well before the 1.0 release? I thought I remembered using 0.8 or something. So isn't Firefox older than 5 years?
Thanks for the links, dtmos!
I've seen a handful of pictures from this Pacific Gyre, but they tend to be closely cropped pictures of nets full of garbage. Are there any pictures that give you a sense of scale for the Gyre? Maybe an aerial photo or something?
Well, better that the Entertainment Software Association does this than the European Space Agency.
Is this really a problem, or are some professional photographers just put out because their pictures not showing up on Wikipedia? I hadn't noticed the pictures on Wikipedia sucking, and all my pictures have been licensed such that Wikipedia could use them (though I didn't think of Wikipedia when I chose the license) since I started using flickr, years ago.
Speaking of the license, I think this statement is wrong:
"Wikipedia runs only pictures with the most permissive Creative Commons license, which allows anyone to use an image, for commercial purposes or not, as long as the photographer is credited."
I don't think the most permissive CC license requires even attribution.
Oh, okay. Thanks for the explanation, Space Pirate!
That's a good idea, but I can't access the wiki.
Follow-up to my own comment:
When you run the 1.0.0 installer (in Windows) it will detect earlier versions and ask if it can uninstall them before installing the new version. So far, so good.
