Has Any Creative Work Failed Because of Piracy?

Gattman01 Re:Let the rationalizations begin (1115 comments)

I was talking about resale and it seems that others thought I was talking about only selling a single copy.

Has Any Creative Work Failed Because of Piracy?

Gattman01 Re:Let the rationalizations begin (1115 comments)

I was under the impression the originator of the comment was attacking resale. I believe that an artist should get paid for original sales of their work. I do not believe they are entitled to additional payments when a resale occurs.

Has Any Creative Work Failed Because of Piracy?

Gattman01 Re:Let the rationalizations begin (1115 comments)

I have no issue with copyrights and I agree that 12 to 24 years is probably a good range. I thought the original poster was attacking resale and my response was geared that way. Artists should get paid for each original copy they sell.

Gattman01 Re:Let the rationalizations begin (1115 comments)

Should you only get paid for first time a copy is sold? Yes.

People with normal jobs don't just work a day or two and expect to keep the money rolling in.

GPS-Based System For Driving Tax Being Field Tested

Gattman01 Towing and tunnels? (891 comments)

What about when a car is towed, or ferried, or moved some other way which gas isn't used?

How about driving through tunnels where you can get a GPS signal? I say we build our own underground road network!

New Law Will Require Camera Phones To "Click"

Gattman01 Re:LOL (1235 comments)

Meanwhile I have yet to find a cell phone with an option to record the calls made on it.

I'm pretty sure my Nokia phone had that ability. It has since died a slow antenna loss death.

Woman Claims Ubuntu Kept Her From Online Classes

Gattman01 Re:Humor? Entertainment? (1654 comments)

According to the story she somehow accidentally ordered the laptop with Ubuntu. I am not sure how she managed that because I have to *search* Dell's site to find their Linux offerings, but I digress and that is irrelevant anyway.

1) Go to http://www.dell.com/
2) Choose "Laptops" under the "For Home" menu
3) Choose "Less than $700" under "Price" on the left hand side.
4) Click on the first result, "Inspiron Mini 9n"
5) Order the cheapest laptop
6) Ignore the second line of the specs, "Ubuntu Linux version 8.04.1"

If someone just wanted the cheapest laptop, they could easily order it on accident.

But I agree with you that she's at fault for not trying to use it.

Computer Textbooks For High Schoolers?

Gattman01 Depends... (361 comments)

It depends on the area they're going to work in.
If they're trying for tech support, maybe a book on Indian (or even Chinese) accents.

Apple dictates naming of corporate networks.

Gattman01 (957859) writes "After updating our company's iPhones to iOS 4.0 the phones suddenly stopped communicating with servers on the local network. It turns out Apple has decided in iOS 4.0 to disallow resolving domain names ending in .local. Their resolution, change your company's internal domain name."

Due to the amount of gluttony occuring during the PS3-some contest, and around the country as a whole, Shredd & Ragan said a big "*ck You!" to all of the EBay'ers who made thousands of dollars on PS3's. They decided to take their last one, and throw it over Niagara Falls!
