Better Copyright Through Fair Use and Ponies

Kitsuneymg Re:4chan (169 comments)

I actually am a prereader at EqD (kits).
I don't consider anything that posts as much fanfiction as we do an introduction to the fandom. I mean, fanfics turn a lot of people off of a lot of things. Plus we have way too many inside references and memes of our own to be a good intro. There is very little in the way of discourse since it's a blog.
Maybe the EqD irc channels. I'd hang out in there more but I'm too busy with the rest of my pony life.

Better Copyright Through Fair Use and Ponies

Kitsuneymg Re:4chan (169 comments)

/co/? Even-handed? RainbowDashLaughing.avi Nope. /co/ is a cesspit. It's far worse than /b/ ever was. Youtube 'pony thread simulator'. That's /co/. I'm not sure WHERE to go for a lightweight introduction, but 4chan ain't it. I'd say either http://www.synchtube.com/r/Yaridovich or maybe chat.freenode.com #flankbook-np or #flankbook-pr. All three places love newfoals. http://www.synchtube.com/r/Filly is a 'cleaner' mlp channel, but sometimes, the mods are still asleep.

Java Gets New Garbage Collector, But Only If You Buy Support

Kitsuneymg Re:Can Java garbage-collect other resources? (587 comments)

If a java class locks some resource (FileInputStream locks the actual file referred to by a java.io.File object) then it will contain a close() or disconnect() etc function that releases the lock. FileInputStream will call close() during finalization if the programmer hasn't yet. The idiom is: FileInputStream fis = null;
try {
fis = new FileInputStream(myFile);
...
} catch(IOException e) {
...
} finally {
if(fis!=null) fis.close();
}

What is an Open Source Company Really Worth?

Kitsuneymg Re:The point... (82 comments)

I proposed that a company would obtain the GPL source code for MySQL, compile it, and then SELL the resulting binaries. That clearly is illegal, both a violation of the GPL and MySQL's trademarks.
No it's not. As long as the package they sell also contains the source and all files needed to build the application, they are still adhering to the GPL.

GPL doesn't preclude selling binaries. It just mandates that the user be able to easily obtain the source from the distributer.

Wolves in IT Admin's Clothing

Kitsuneymg Kitsuneymg writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Kitsuneymg (815431) writes "Dark Reading takes a look at how companies seek to protect themselves (and their data) from their own IT staff. From the article, it seems they have a long way to go.

But Diodati notes that there is a whole range of administrative passwords built into many scripts and applications that still need to be addressed by access control technologies and practices. "At some point, there's going to be a need to rip embedded passwords out of programs and restrict them," he says. "That will probably come later, after the basic administrative checkout issues are addressed."
