Huawei Offers 'Complete and Unrestricted' Source Code Access

FumarMata Re:Source (255 comments)

If you can't prove that there are backdoors, you are just being RACIST

(Right! Chinese are evil, somebody told me that all their stuff is packed with viruses and stuff. BTW: Let's ban brands that employ black people. Those guys are evil too. Oh! And Australian products? I heard that Australians are the descendants of criminals... can we ban their exports too? [/sarcasm])

Occupy Flash?

FumarMata Re:Occupy HTML, written in HTML (507 comments)

You didn't understand a word. They are saying that for certain websites, it's better to use HTML and for other websites it's better to use Flash. To do all websites only in Flash or only in HTML is a mistake. One might think that it's a reasonable response... but well, some times you have to explain it twice for people to understand. Or people should read/listen before talking about something

Cutting Prices Is the Only Way To Stop Piracy

FumarMata Re:How cheap? (620 comments)

As I said before: I know that there are pirates and they are pirating and will pirate forever and I don't complain like "I'm not rich because of them". I am making (a bit) of money, my game is fun and not boring, feedback is great

I only want everybody to agree that pirating a 0.99 game is LOW, indecent, unfair. Again: we are not talking about human rights, food, medicines, etc. we are talking about you pirating a 0.99 app while having a 4.99 frapuccino

The companies that bitch about it now so loud, have been making millions/billions of dollars over the years even with piracy around I'm a guy programming for 6 months, paying an illustrator to make drawings and a band to make the music. Thinking that everybody is M$, Apple or Adobe is naive. Or a reason to not to feel guilty for stealing stealing the guy next door

Cutting Prices Is the Only Way To Stop Piracy

FumarMata Re:How cheap? (620 comments)

Yes, you are right. I can't convince pirates and I'll never get their money and I don't have the feeling of "i'm not rich because of pirates"
But I would like we all to agree that it's at least a lack of decency and respect for other people's work, there is no fair reason why you would have the right to pirate a 0.99 game.
It's not food, medicines or the right to have a house. It's a 0.99 game that you are pirating while having a 4.99 frapuccino

Cutting Prices Is the Only Way To Stop Piracy

FumarMata Re:How cheap? (620 comments)

Who told you that it's not fun? I have been featured elsewhere, it's having it's rate of success, top 25 in Games in USA and other countries. No I'm not a millionaire. No, you don't have to tell me how to do my job. And I'm totally entitled to money.

But the question is why is people still pirating 0.99 $ games? Are you saying that people pirates games because they are not fun? And when will they know that the game was fun? Before or after pirating it? ...really?

Even if my game is crap, why are you entitled to enjoy the crap that took me 6 month to produce, paying everybody's salaries, for free?

FumarMata Re:How cheap? (620 comments)

You mean that if "a pirate" downloads it and after playing it, he sees that it's worth his money, he'll go to the app store and buy it? No, the game is good enough, and is worth more than 1 $. I was going to shamelessly promote it here... but there are too many pirates reading.

FumarMata How cheap? (620 comments)

I am selling an iPhone game at 0.99 $ and there's still people pirating it. Does it have to be even cheaper?

UK Court Finds Company Liable For Software Defects

FumarMata Re:Yay! finally some accountability for all those (205 comments)

Yes, and every hobbyist now has to worry about being sued when their code breaks.

If you are a hobbyist, you should not sell your software. Leave it for the pros

only this single error in written english pisses me off. i don't care about any other things like coz, 2, 4, its/it's. please please everyone, no apostrophe when writing plurals!

I'll try to remember that, it's really a problem to write perfectly one language when you speak 4, but thanks. Meanwhile you could capitalize the first word of every sentence, proper nouns and "I" (english, i, please) ;)

Apple Approves Opera Mini For iPhone

FumarMata First IMPORTANT problems (284 comments)

oh oh... After using it for 20 minutes and LOVING it, first problems arose:

1.- I only got "Internal server error" pages during 30 minutes. Maybe Opera's servers where saturated?

2.- When it worked again, I couldn't post it in my Facebook!! As Opera servers are in Norway (I'm in Spain), an alert appeared when connecting to FB: "Your account is blocked, somebody tried to hijack your account from another country".

but when it works... it's simply the best
