EVE Online CSM and Diplomat Killed in Libyan Consulate Attacks

CBung Re:link to fundraiser in SA forums (680 comments)

I'm wondering if the issue is that it seems like 30pages of RIPs, and there is no fundraiser details yet, it's only mentioned in the thread title... will wait and see I guess.

UK Executive 'Forced Out of Job' For Posting CV Online

CBung During work hours (219 comments)

I wonder if they'll go as far as trying to find out if he posted it while at work, and how much that might matter.

Android Orphans: a Sad History of Platform Abandonment

CBung Re:What? (770 comments)

Last I checked the SGS was not up to date at all, particularly in Canada. The Galaxy S would certainly have a few yellow blocks as well because I remember months waiting for new releases. What carrier are you with? Much love to XDA.

Flight Data Recorders, Decades Out of Date

Seems like the author answers a lot of their own question. This post just feels like a rant from someone in the industry with a half-assed question tacked on the end, what gives?

DMCA take down advice

CBung CBung writes  |  more than 5 years ago

CBung (1572609) writes "Hello Slashdot readers, I am involved in an open source Java strategy game engine hosted on SourceForge. We have existed for many years and our development is volunteer based. We use the engine to play clones of a popular WWII board game as well as many community created mods and maps. The popularity of the board game is the driving force behind the successfulness of our application. Most users have "been playing that board game for 20yrs", and most of us own at least one of the board games. We love being able to play on line and develop our skills on the board game maps at an international level. Unfortunately, we've recently been hit by a DMCA take down notice from the rights holder the board game that we clone. The IP holder did create a PC version of the board game in 1998 which was poorly maintained and another reason our application was created. At this point, our initial reaction is to simply remove the specifically cloned maps, and maintain our application with many of our user mods. However, many of our mods use the same units and game mechanics/rules as the board game. Is there any way we can keep our application, including the clones of the board game maps, alive?

I will also note that the rights holder recently released an on line version of their board game thats playable on line. However it is very specific and limited in options. It seems more then coincidental that we've received this notice now that their own game lobby is on line. Can our application take refuge in another country? Is there a way to keep our application alive since it is significantly more feature full?"
