Great find!
Is it just me or does qnx look awesome?

Meh, sony has no excuse. Shipping a rootkit with retail software is unacceptable, no matter what their so called motives were.

"We wanted to prevent people from copying music, so now we can control all computers that ever played a sony cd...."

overkill much?

It's a plot to take over the world! :D

DRM is pointless anyway. as long as music can be played and listened to, it can be copied.

Thanks for the info, f0dder!

lol, cpilot. so you think that everyone should just cover their eyes and plug their ears and be good citicens and obey the nice totalitarian policestate law until some terrorist finds the bug exploits it :D

Developer's Corner / Re: Indie Game Devs: Forget It - article

The game industry is in a rather depressing state.
Companies like EA are buying up all the smaller (successful) ones, and games are much like the movie industry, where everything done for maximum marketing value and popularity with the masses.

EA: All your games are belong to us.

These larger companies can not afford to make unpopular games so there may be a small market there for indy developers who aren't aiming for the general public.

Most indy game developers stick to puzzle games or kids games.

Developer's Corner / Re: SourceForge getting some hate

Yeah, cvs has been broken for waaay to long now. They seem to forget that many many things depend on their cvs. Many OpenSource projects develop through cvs, and for many users it cuts off their 'cutting edge' version downloads. Some linux distributions ( like gentoo ) automatically connect to sourceforge's cvs to install certain software ( some emerge's are cvs only ). All this is broken now. It's a bit disastrous. I hope they fix it soon. But when it's fixed it will be better than before, hopefully.

Simply awesome, now i can sell my mouse.

zridling is right ;)

Computers require patience and lots of it. I'm a very patient person, and I never get frustrated with my computer, even when it completely breaks down and doesn't turn on. I just lift my butt, open the case, and fix it, and then continue my work.

In some bad cases the 'fix it' part takes a few hours, sometimes it takes a few days, sometimes it requires replacing parts, but in the end everything always turns out ok. :)

We have to remember, that computers are, essentially, nothing but scrap metal, so why get all worked up over that?

No matter what my physical meatbody is doing at the moment, or my brain is working on, I'm always present, and it's that presence which is continual throughout everything I do. Feel comfortable and happy with that presence, and nothing from the outside world can bother you. :)

This Presence is the undefinable thing that exists beyond the physical, mental and emotional body. It is the 4th body which overshadows them all. Depending on where your daily focus is within these 4 bodies, you will react differently. Some people are mostly emotionally focused, others are mostly mentally focused (scientists?), others are mostly physically focused (body builders?). Most people's normal focus will be a mix of all of these. But the 4th one, P R E S E N C E, is always overlooked!
If you were to put them in a scale from low to high (eventhough such linearity is not accurate) you'd get

- physical
- emotional
- mental
- PRESENCE

the mental can control the emotional and physical, the emotional can cause physical reactions, it also works the other way around, and they all interact, but the last one is omnipresent, and affects them all. You're there!

Imagine being happy that you're there, all the time, regardless of the state of the physical, emotional, and mental!

Now that's detatchment, baby :)

It's not that other browsers don't have security holes, it's that IE is the most targeted browser for most malware.

764
heh, these just keep on comming, don't they?

patch that fixes it : don't use IE

Developer's Corner / Re: Panda3d - nice looking new 3d game engine
« on: April 25, 2006, 03:50 PM »
Interesting,

I wish though it would have more c++ source sample code instead of all that python stuff.

Very weird license, by the way!

10. The Software is subject to United States export controls. The Software may not be downloaded or otherwise exported or reexported (i) into (or to a national or resident of) Cuba, Libya, North Korea, Iran, Syria, or any other country to which the U.S. has embargoed goods;

That seems very,.... evil.

I read over the license 3 times and i still do not know if it is :
    - Legal to distribute compiled comercially without paying?
    - Do you have to mention you used it?

In the main page it just sais it's a "free" license,.... that's not very verbose, does that mean one is allowed to do all of the above (as long as you're not in a country the US doesn't like), or what?



767
Generally, that's true. But what happends usually is that something starts out as a quick small script, but later it grows, more features get added, etc. The end result is not really fit for a scripting language. There are more and more and more apps that are being released like that, and it seems like applications seem to run slower and slower, with a few exceptions. That's kinda wrong :)
But offcourse there are good uses for it. :)

For example, a good backend program coded in for example c++, with a scriptable frontend. :)
The reality is, very few, next to none script-based applications that I see are coded like that.

768
Hmm,... I still think making GUI apps with a scripting language is evil :p

You could just use a sniffer that does arp poisening like ettercap ( http://ettercap.sourceforge.net ) or cain ( http://www.oxid.it/cain.html )


770
Sou should remove the www. from the sourceforce link

oops, done. i can't believe i www'd sourceforge! shame on me :D

772
You could use an encrypted filesystem.

If you use linux this can be done quite easily without too much overhead.
http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO/Loopback-Encrypted-Filesystem-HOWTO.html

in windows you could use PGPDisk
http://www.pgpi.org/products/pgpdisk/

or truecrypt
http://www.truecrypt.org/

It is said that windows vista will have encrypted filesystem support built-in natively. (not that i'd ever use vista :p)


773
or even if FBSL just supported assembly instead of turbo pascal-style machine code blocks

FYI Turbo Pascal did have ASM blocks.

PROCEDURE ShowMouse ; ASSEMBLER
ASM
  MOV AX,1
  INT 33
END;

BEGIN

ASM
  MOV AX,13
  INT 10h
END;

ShowMouse;

ASM
  @WAITCLICK:
  MOV AX,3
  INT 33
  CMP BX,0
  JE @WAITCLICK
END;

END.

Maybe you ment QBasic ;)

I've been using this engine for a long time (eg. for spaceduck ( http://gothic.dcmembers.com ) , and finally it's stable!

I've been sitting on evil hard wooden chairs until i couldn't take the bummpain no longer, and simply moved the couch to the computer. Our computers are next to the tv etc anyway, and our living room is basically our office, so I do most of my coding from the couch. You'd think it's comfortable, but truely it's not. (as you don't lean backwards for programming) but at least it's a step up from having a numb bumm from sitting on those hard chairs. I'm still waiting for a better alternative. :(
