    Lowing the Switching Cost to Weasyl

    I am very dearly determined to switch away from Furaffinity to Weasyl for several factors that are ideological. I am an exceptionally ideologically driven person, but the opportunity cost for...

    I'd argue this depends on the country, but I'm not up for making a long winded post about jibbler jabber that could easily cause flamewars. Also, I can't figure out your country of origin, and...

    The concept of socially forbidden words is laughable. That we would willingly nuder our ability to express our mind is frightening.

    Words don't mater. I agree that it is the intent that matters. ...
  4. Is there a civic duty to seek out education in a modern democrocy/republic?

    So I've been thinking. It's a common pastime for me.

    Today people seem far less versed in the liberal arts and sciences. I wanted to say less informed, but that's simply not true. We have...

    Well he does have a point with the Chromebook, but in reality I doubt a Chromebook would be appropriate there. You can't actually store files on one, not to mention support for things like networked...

    Though, just a bit of additional advice. You really might want to consider getting a desktop.
    Especially going into college. A desktop is going to give you a much better development environment and...

    As above If you are going iOS or Mac development, go with a mac.

    Otherwise, I might recommend going with System 76.

    I'd recommend that because it's not an entirely...

    In terms of general best chat app, my vote is for IRCcloud. It's for IRC only, but the interface is great.
    In terms of a multi-protocol app I remember nothing but good things about IM+, i'll have to...
  10. Let us assume for a moment that Adobe was not a...

    I'm sorry but this is absolutely ridiculous to brush off. It is whether or not it is profitable. They are a company that needs to make new product and more of it for your "demands over consumer...
  11. Commonly occurred or not, it was still possible....

    Second hand sales of software has not commonly occurred in the last 10 years. Product keys and product activation as copy protection killed that long ago. Nobody in their right mind will purchase...

    It's the reason why a lot of places are switching to having digital licenses.

    It's irrelevant to the product. Online services are separate from the product in all cases but for those where the...

    I am fully aware of what Consumer rights are, but you keep repeating the same argument about 1st sale doctrine and times have changed. You need to move on or just stay stuck in the past, I...

    You know... aside from the official documentation, not really. What I did, to be honest, was learn the basics via one of the old 1980's texts on the subject, and then for anything else I wanted to...
  15. Consumer rights are not the rights to consume....

    It isn't a horrible regressing in consumer rights. People are not "consuming" things the same way or more specifically purchasing things the same way. That's a problem.

    15 years ago many couldn't afford the software new or used to begin with.

  17. This is the short sightedness that I'm bemoaning....

    No, but a licensed service can be started and stopped at any time. You don't purchase it to begin with; You're not spending $2500 for Adobe Master Collection, you're spending $50/month.

    This is...

    I'm sort of a fan of nice typesetting, myself. Since Weasyl got PDF support, I've begun posting my own works typeset in LaTeX (I have quite a bit of experience with it, actually, but mostly in...

    Yeah, digital distribution itself isn't any different from physical media; In Steam's case, you oftentimes get product keys when you download games, and that safeguards you against Steam somehow...

    You know, I'm really kinda pissed at this trend we are going in general. I hate the idea that we 'licence' our software, ebooks, MP3s, games, etc.
    I wonder if we really realise just all that we are...

    Wow, it's like Nintendo Friend Codes taken to their logical conclusion! So easy to use.

    Yep, or you can post a link to it here. Either or.

    Ah! Makes sense. I don't usually read a .pdf like that - but I can see that now.

    So if we're interested just send you a note?
