Surely if the explosion is on the far side the moon would be sent hurtling *towards* earth?

imakemusic Re:What's the hype? (215 comments)

Why Linux Can't 'Sell' On the Desktop

imakemusic Re:heh (1091 comments)

I have had a real bear trying to do some rather straightforward things on MS and Apple.

I've had a real centipede giving me technical support. They weren't great at troubleshooting but their words-per-minute was amazing.

imakemusic Re:WALES (95 comments)

Yes and no. Wales now has a separate government from England - the Welsh Assembly - but they still both come under the heading of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Evidence of Lost Da Vinci Fresco Behind Florentine Wall

imakemusic Re:Explore! Explore! (114 comments)

Haven't they analysed the Mona Lisa and found the sketches underneath it which Leonardo did before painting? If we'd destroyed the painting before these techniques were discovered then we wouldn't be able to do this.

Pasadena Police Encrypt, Deny Access To Police Radio

imakemusic Re:So? (487 comments)

I see your point but I think it's more correct to say that what they actually want is to stop everyone from having the ability to track police actions. There's a subtle difference between not allowing anyone and not allowing everyone.

10-Year Gary McKinnon Case To End This Year

imakemusic Re:Who? (72 comments)

True, but they aren't used anywhere near as often as AC is on here. I like the idea of AC but it makes spamming - or just talking crap without any repercussions - a lot easier.

imakemusic Re:Who? (72 comments)

There aren't any ACs on Reddit. There's also an unlimited supply of downvotes (albeit one per comment/post).

Rockbox Developers Talk Open Source Firmware

imakemusic Re:OSS Rocks! (179 comments)

I used Rockbox on my iRiver back around 2005-ish. The UI was a massive improvement on the default even then. It might not have been a great improvement to the iOS of the time (I don't know) but it was totally usable.

Non-Copied Photo Is Ruled Copyright Infringement

imakemusic Re:Misleading to call it "non-copied" (657 comments)

Consider Snoopy. If I look at the snoopy character and draw a similar dog called Smarpy, which isn't quite the same, and perhaps make him a comic book character, is that a derivative work?

How about if you animate it and call the dog Brian?

imakemusic Re:Misleading to call it "non-copied" (657 comments)

If you are a derivative work, then you can be subject to copyright infringement.

I am a derivative of my parents. Should I speak to my lawyer?
