Wear leveling does wonders, over provisioning does more on top.
Add compression on top of that. If your data isn't all ZIP, PNG, JPG, MPG, or some other compressed format, the controller turns repetition into even more over-provisioning.
He's right when it comes to games.
But not so much when it comes to the libraries that underlie games and the marketing of games. Though the free software community has so far failed to developer a business model for producing original games, it has excelled at producing infrastructure. EA's ports of Tetris to Android run on top of free libraries. Tetris Zone was first made for OS X, whose low-level components are based on Mach and FreeBSD. Tetris can be played over the Internet, and many TCP/IP stacks are based on the free TCP/IP implementation released by AT&T in 1989 as free software. Tetris has a Twitter account, and Twitter was originally written in the free language Ruby until it switched to the free language Scala. Tetris.com uses the CloudFlare CDN, which according to Netcraft runs Linux. Yet Mr. Pajitnov thinks all the free software on which his business depends "should never have existed".
I'm surprised you didn't ask [pastiche of my previous question patterns]
I've moved on. Best practice is "prototype your original game on PC first then talk to Sony", contacting is "@tetris_official will tell you what you need to know", and how same-screen Tetris works is "whatever BPS and its partners have put out on the latest console".
So he's being charged with some made up offense
Vicarious infringement is defined as profiting from infringements that you have power to stop. A policy of paying users who share infringing copies of popular files is pretty good evidence of profiting from infringement. Safe harbor laws such as OCILLA exist in many countries to protect site operators from having to pay excessive damages due to accidental vicarious infringement, but it appears Megaupload didn't take steps to qualify for these safe harbors.
which isn't a law anywhere.
What do you mean by "isn't a law"? New Zealand and the United States are common-law jurisdictions, which rely heavily on how previous judges have interpreted statutes.
Since I've already paid for the license, and I'm not allowed to make copies for my own private use, why can't I buy a second disc for the media fee alone?
I don't know about Sony, but Disney lets you.
admen don't trust webmasters on clickview counts reporting.
Then why do they trust Google and the other major ad networks on clickview counts reporting?
Putting an ad blocker or plugin click-to-play on top of hosts
Hosts are a ALSO valuable added layer of security!
That's what I was trying to imply. Adblock is a layer, and hosts is a layer.
Hydrogen is a terrible energy storage medium compared to modern battery technology. The only possible advantages it has are (a) you can generate it from fossil fuels, and (b) it lends itself far more in today's rooftop-solar-filled world to central control and taxation.
