Why Games Should Be In the Public Domain

Kinwolf I understand Broussard (360 comments)

I understand Geroge Broussard being againt this; If games would fall in public domain after X time passed, Duke Nukem Forever would have actually entered public domain before ever being published.

FLOSS 2013: the Survey For Open Source Contributors, a Decade Later

Kinwolf Re:Not enough application success stories (27 comments)

Apache is a good counter-example. There is basically only one way to be the Best Web Server Ever, so Apache has no significant FOSS competitors. Persons who see a way to make a server better contribute to the Apache project.

Nginx maybe?

Gaming Legends Discuss Using Kickstarter For Their Next Projects

Kinwolf Re:Excessive greed. (112 comments)

Indeed, it is following the same path as Ebay, which was once an awesome place to find and sell older stuff, but these days it's populated at 98% by Ebay Stores with set prices, and lost it's usefullness as an auction site. Kickstarter is going that way too, it started as a great place for new, small projects, but is being overrun now by corps who uses it as a launch platform for their next product.

Michael Dell To Buy Dell Inc.

Kinwolf Re:Good (175 comments)

I could care less what Apple does or did, the comment was meant to be humorous since Steve Jobs once said there would never be a low end iPhone.

After Apple showed the IPhone 5c this week, I'm pretty sure nothing could make him laugh in his tomb right now.

Kinwolf Re:What is Bruce Schneier's game? (397 comments)

Err, what article are you talking about? I read the article linked in the summary and nowhere does he talks about GPG or others. I'd be interested in reading the FA you are quoting from.

Didn't we just have a front page article about how the Nexus 7 has closed source drivers and some guys stopped maintaining their build?

Waiting for Tuppe666 to tell me why this is good, and how Google is jesus.

I don't know if google is jesus, , but after googling it I found out that Jesus is ON Google +!

Android 4.3 Based CyanogenMod 10.2 Nightlies Arrive

Kinwolf Closed source drivers still a bane (82 comments)

I tried CM 10 on my GS3 and sadly I had to remove it. Wi-fi, camera and bluetooth refused to work properly, kept crashing or had awful performance, depending on the revision installed. So I went back to the stock ROM, which isn't too bad thankfully, but still has alot of services and programs that I have no use of and yet are always loaded in memory. Next phone(which should not be before 3 years) I am going Nexus to avoid all that pain.(and hoping that Nexus phones still exist at that time)

Hacker Releases 1.7TB Treasure Trove of Gaming Info

Kinwolf He's obviously not Canadian (293 comments)

At least we know this hacker isn't Canadian. With our current ISP plans, it would have taken 1.5 years to upload 1.7TB of data without busting the bank in extra fees for bandwith.

Kinwolf Kinwolf writes  |  about a year ago

Kinwolf (945345) writes ""A tiny new open source drone kit made by Bitcraze is buzzing its way to market this spring, targeted at hackers and modders who want to explore droning indoors as well as out."
Now I know what I'll do for the first 7 minutes of lunch break! The pre-order price is 173$ for the most avanced model, and some soldering is required. The telemetry being available is a pretty nice touch."
