Examining Indie Game Pricing

JohnFluxx Low prices + steam helps (188 comments)

I just bought "Defence Grid" for $2 on steam. It's not much money, but I wouldn't have paid any more, and wouldn't have even bothered to pirate it. I probably won't even play, but my brother uses my steam account and he might check it out.

My point is that $2 is a good impulse-buy price. I won't even bother to check a demo or reviews at that price. So that's $2 more than they would have gotten.

I'd be interested in seeing their total profit binned by price.

MasterCard Hit By WikiLeaks Payback Attacks

JohnFluxx Re:Masterrace? Reactions from Europe (715 comments)

> The dissemination of classified materials is.

No it isn't. The initial leak, not done by WikiLeaks, is illegal. After that it's legal to distribute.

See how newspapers are also publishing some of the leaks - they wouldn't be doing that if it was illegal.

Wikileaks hasn't even been legally accused of doing anything illegal.

Kentucky Announces Creationism Theme Park

JohnFluxx $24.5 million to build an ark? (648 comments)

Why does it take $24.5 million to build the ark, and has an image of dozens of people working on it?

Didn't Noah manage to do it all by himself?

Interpol Issues Wanted Notice For Julian Assange

JohnFluxx Re:um, thats kind of not what it says (1020 comments)

The women themselves don't seem to actually want to persue this.

One woman said:

What makes her latest comments even more bizarre is that her team have gone to say that they are appealing the Swedish prosecutions decision not to pursue the rape allegations any further. Claes Borgstrom told AFP:

        I have asked a higher-ranked special department in the prosecution’s office of Sweden to reconsider the [prosecutor's] decision.

Interpol Issues Wanted Notice For Julian Assange

JohnFluxx Re:"Sex crimes" (1020 comments)

One of the women told a Sweedish newspaper that in an interview. I don't speak sweedish so I can't give you an original source, but the translated quote is:

“I had never intended for Julian Assange to be charged with rape. It is quite wrong that we were afraid of him. He is not violent and I do not feel threatened by him.”

You can google the quote for more sources.

Interpol Issues Wanted Notice For Julian Assange

JohnFluxx Re:"Sex crimes" (1020 comments)

One of the women specifically said:

“It is quite wrong that we were afraid of him. He is not violent and I do not feel threatened by him.”

How does that fit your idea that he "forced" them in any way?

JohnFluxx "Sex crimes" (1020 comments)

Just in case some reads the comments and not the article..

The women themselves said they were not afraid of him, and he did not force them.

Linus On Branching Practices

JohnFluxx Re:Isn't this kind of obvious? (90 comments)

And you need to read up on the concept of git.

Seriously, this isn't SVN.

Typical work flow in git is:

1) Clone remote repository
2) Make branch of the clone's master (origin/master), say, and calling it "master".
3) Add your commits to your branch.
4) Continue until you're happy.
5) Merge your changes with any changes that other people have done.
6) Push your changes onto the remote server.

What Linus is saying is that step 5 can cause trouble. Instead of making a branch of clone's master, you should use the latest tag instead. This is not the way you'd do it on any small or medium project.

Linus On Branching Practices

JohnFluxx Re:Isn't this kind of obvious? (90 comments)

> I'm sorry but I've never been tempted to branch from an unstable point, and I'd be horrified if anyone on my time tried to do so.

What?

This would happen just checking out the latest version, then start writing some code. How is that a practise that you should be "horrified" by ?

What To Load On a 4-Year-Old's Netbook?

JohnFluxx Re:how about a fishing pole (742 comments)

How about *you* get on a bicycle and cycle around in your spare time.

Oh, because it's not that much fun to do it all the time? Double standards?

What 2D GUI Foundation Do You Use?

JohnFluxx Re:He's looking for drawing, not a toolkit! (331 comments)

Qt lets you do stuff like take a button, style is with CSS to make it look how you want, then put it in an opengl scene. The result is a button that that looks however you want in opengl, but has all the behaviour of a button.

You can CSS-style all the widgets in Qt.

What 2D GUI Foundation Do You Use?

JohnFluxx Re:Qt (331 comments)

Does .net let you modify the libraries and then redistribute the binaries without making the changes public? Is that something you need?

I don't follow why this is a must-have feature for you.
