Comment Disney's Mistake (Score 1) 562

....the only mistake Disney made for the moment is firing LucasArts people. Now LucasArts do not do game development anymore, just manage the IP. Wikipedia: "Disney Interactive Studios retained the ability to develop, and LucasArts retained the ability to license, the franchise for the casual gaming market."

It can be interesting to donate some books to the Internet Archive. While your local library may sell your donated books to students or recycle them, the Internet Archive will scan them and put them on openlibrary.org.

I also hear that you can pay the Scanning Service close to your location to scan your books. but you will need to check on that.

Check if by any chance your books are already digitized on OpenLibrary.org

Submission + - Star Wars: The Force Awakens reviewed

An anonymous reader writes: “So, here we are, Episode VII — The Force Awakens is finally with us and the question is, was it worth the wait? To quote Han Solo from the first trailer, and the moment that a million voices suddenly cried out in joy, “Chewie, we’re home!” ...It may be a blatant attempt to play the nostalgia card with older fans, and it works a treat, but it’s also very welcome and as comfortable as pulling on a favourite Jedi robe...

The Force Awakens is fun, it's vibrant, it's got heart and emotion, and as Obi Wan Kenobi once almost said, this IS the Star Wars film you’re looking for. ”

Hi. Yes and No. If you take the time to read the "JOINT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT" between IBM and Microsoft, it seems that they both has rights to use the source code, and they can not share the source code for 10 years after the release date. http://tech-insider.org/person...
