I've got a moral dilemma! I really don't like this theme. But it feels wrong to slaughter children. Oh, what to do? )c:

Ludum Dare 30 is coming up fast! It will begin in just under 14 days!

This thread is the general purpose LD30 thread. Any discussion about LD30 and its games can be posted here. I plan to participate again, so I'll probably be posting about my game in this thread, but feel free to talk about any LD30 games in this thread. Also, if you know anything about coding or game making, you should participate in Ludum Dare 30! And if you don't, you should still take this opportunity to join in and learn!

Right now the Theme Slaughtering has begun. You can help decide which theme will inspire literally thousands of games by taking part in the slaughtering. I believe the slaughtering will last only a week and then the theme voting will begin.

See previous DC posts about Ludum Dare:
Ludum Dare 29 - (I made It Came From... Beneath!! during LD29)
Ludum Dare [29] topic for other games - A thread about LD29 games.
Ludum Dare 23 - (I made Be Tiny, World! during LD23, and http://btw.deozaan.com]continued to work on it and improve it[/url] for years afterward!)

It's all kind of silly. I doubt any court will extend IP legal protections to a non-human at this stage of the game.

I don't think Wikimedia is trying to argue that the copyright belongs to the ape. I think the point of Wikimedia's argument is that the image is essentially in the public domain because the camera's owner doesn't own the copyright (as he didn't take the picture, or even supervise/direct the photograph in any way), and the photographer (the person/creature/thing that took the photo) is not a human, so the ape can't own the copyright either.

That's not a coder's shoe. It's a hipster's shoe. Too many missing keys. You couldn't code with that shoe. It's missing vital keys for programming.

There's not even an up arrow? thumb down thumb down

Fun idea; awful execution.

True. My point was more about how "digital piracy" isn't actually theft. "Stolen" passwords definitely present a much bigger risk of personal loss than a "stolen" digital movie.

Even so, if someone "steals" the combination to your safe, nothing has been stolen until they use the combination to open your safe and steal the contents.

I prefer the old security term "compromise" as in: to expose or make vulnerable to danger

Whether or not something was taken is almost moot once your security is compromised and the potential is there for someone to act upon it.

Now if the act of compromising the security of digital accounts or IDs was specifically made a crime it would go a long way towards clearing up that nagging issue of whether or not it was an actual criminal act if nothing had been taken yet.

Yeah, "compromised" is a good term when dealing with passwords or vault combinations. But it doesn't quite fit the act of "stealing" digital movies or music. The only thing that is supposedly compromised in that situation is the thickness of the MPAA's and RIAA's wallets. tongue

Robbed? huh

We really have to come up with a better word to describe digital "theft" that leaves the original unharmed and intact. If someone stole my refrigerator by making an exact copy of it and leaving me with my own copy... would I really care? Would I consider it theft?

I get your point, but,
in this case, it could depend on whether they could empty your copy of the fridge, or not undecided

Still seems a bit of a hassle. I'd just use BitTorrent Sync and create a folder to sync with each person/group.

It's like a private, self/non-hosted, peer-to-peer, torrented, unlimited-space Dropbox!

134  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Bleep… Bittorrent unveils serverless & encrypted chat client on: August 04, 2014, 08:24:16 AM
Yeah, but how does the client know who to communicate your IP address to? Or do you mean we'd have to manually tell each other our IPs and manually enter them into the client?
135  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Bleep… Bittorrent unveils serverless & encrypted chat client on: August 04, 2014, 12:46:02 AM
Cool!

But if there's no central server, how does the client know where to find other peers?

It's P2P, so it's using peers to communicate that information.

I mean, how do the peers know how to find each other? How does my computer know to connect to someone on the other side of the world unless we both connect to a central server that tells us the other person is running the client?

How are you getting an Android version of Palemoon? I can't find it on the Google Play Store, nor can I find a download for it on the Palemoon website.

Thank you!  smiley

Palemoon is nice. It does have its hicks though.
Haven't tried it on Linux but it is really good (fast) on Nexus 7!

eBooks are the better option if they don't have DRM deleting them or making them inaccessible.

Wow. I'm really impressed by their website!

I love how the background image matches up perfectly with the video, so it's like an extra wide screen.

The game looks pretty sweet, too!

That would be nice...

There's a 10.1 nexus out now, but it's considered "old" and again, a new one is right around the corner.

The Nexus 10 came out in 2012 and never got a hardware update in 2013 like the Nexus 7 did. I've been itching to buy one for about a year, but thought surely there was a new one "right around the corner" since the Nexus 7 was updated last year. AFAIK, any news of a Nexus 10 hardware update has proven to be just a rumor. Cry

I like that he shows off DonationCoder in the article. (c: Thmbsup

I really could have used this earlier, as I've been trying to recall the URL to an article I read a few months ago about a particular topic, but cannot find the source in my history no matter what I try.

Thanks for sharing!

Very similar to Truecrypt and why its sudden attempted assassination was all the more ridiculous.

Attempted assassination? You mean TrueCrypt survived? huh

Sorry for going off-topic.
