This. I am so glad my sons have now got into the backend of minecraft and are currently skirting around simple mods. They have made the connection between the code and the game on their own and have begun researching into it. They think it's just having fun but they're teaching themselves how it works, how to problem solve, researching skills, making efficiencies on repetative tasks, hell, they now have a reason to learn to type effectively and asked about keyboard shortcuts. At 7 my youngest can now copy and paste via the keyboard. I support many millenials in my work and a good proportion of them can't do that.
My other half keeps suggesting we get them tablets which horrifies me. They don't need yet another device they can passively consume media on. They've been talking about playing Minecraft on a LAN so I've an old PC which needs more memory, a graphics card and probably an SSD to make it Mincraftable. I will be encouraging them to install the hardware themselves.
Isn't it better to cause several smaller controlled crashes, releasing the energy and thus slowing a car, than one huge one where the energy is released in one go, especially if the crash was inevitable? After all the energy is already built up in the momentum of the car, crashing it gently doesn't PUT that energy there. Obviously, not all cars will crash but if we release the energy in cars with small controlled crashes, where's the harm?......hmmm.....could do with work that one.
Well DUH, they aren't trying to stop piracy.
They are trying to stop easy, casual piracy being the norm. They are trying to knock down the biggest threats. It's a perfectly rational response to the situation whether you agree with it or not. They might be idiots but they're not stupid.
