I would pay ___ monthly for a good online newspaper/magazine

Mack428 Re:Good online content? (315 comments)

That is my point. When most magazines will let you get a year subscription for $10 - $20, to get a paper copy mailed to me, why would I want to pay more than that to get it electronically also or instead? If the electronic price is lower than the paper copy price per year then it makes sense to me. Otherwise. No dice.

Court Says First Sale Doctrine Doesn't Apply To Licensed Software

Mack428 Re:Soooo (758 comments)

That is exactly what I was thinking. According to this new ruling would selling a used computer with anything but a blank hard drive be a violation? Could you sell it reset to factory install? Would you have to purchase all new licensing for the PC if you purchased it used?

Should Developers Have Access To Production?

Mack428 Re:For me (402 comments)

It isn't always as easy as just firing up another server. Depending on the complexity of the systems involved and how they tie in together, to reproduce a certain issue you might need multiple different servers, applications and databases. It is usually never as trivial as just deploying a single extra test server.
