My Girlfriend wanted somewhat special and unique for Christmas, so she got a WinRAR license from me 🙆♀️18
Licensing is so freaking weird and stupid.
I mean, I just forked this repo with an Apache license, so I could update a .json file.
"You must cause any modified files to carry prominent notices stating that You changed the files"
Plain JSON allows no comments.
I'm going to jail.30
Every single time:
Sublime Text: Would you like to purchase a license now?
Me: CTRL+S (again)
Pretty sure the last one is not needed, but can't help!15
*all kinda db shizzle at work but finally done and going home. Can't see anything related to databases for the next few hours*
*gets in car and closes eyes for 5 minutes* (I'm not the driver)
*opens eyes only to look right into the center of a license plate: xx-DB-xx*
I think the universe hates me or something.2
Damn I hate when people ask me to stop coding just because Excel doesn't work or the Antivirus license expired, even worse my boss gets mad at me when I tell him that I'm a coder that we have tech support people, who apparently do nothing, to all the PMs and Lead Devs
Please stop telling me about the freaking deadline if you also ask me to install your stuff.
Sorry for the negativity, had to get it out12
Arguing with a woman is like reading the Software License Agreement. In the end, you ignore everything and click "I agree".
The level of fucking backflips I have to do to get these morons to learn git and not share code via fucking emails, Jesus Christ, you'd think I asked them to switch religions. Why the fuck does this profession not require a fucking license in this godforsaken country.15
*reads JSON license*
"The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil."
Well that's actually a nice license.. if only nuclear research etc could be licensed like that.
Wait actually.. WanBLowS is using XML for its "diagnostic data", right? I always found it so weird that they don't use JSON for that.. but I guess that this is why 🙃20
Windows vs Mac vs Linux
Swift vs Objective-C
Emacs vs Vim
GPL vs Apache License vs MIT license
Android vs iOS vs Windows phone*
Skype vs Facetime

I DON'T GIVE A FUCK!
IM HAPPY WITH WHAT I HAVE, SO STOP PREACHING OR I'LL STAB YOU!
A recruiter on call, going through my GitHub project with MIT License: "but it is taken from MIT, is it?"12
From r/linuxmasterrace (u/KeithKatar)
How many times has this conversation happened at your workplace?11
Thanks to whoever said you can get a student license for jetbrains products! Just got mine approved today!16
Any code I make for clients is under a strict license unless specified otherwise. It's a straight forward license pretty much stating that they can't sell it or claim it as their own. I've had a few clients break that license but one stood out. I had made a piece of software that cost her over $2,500 due to the amount of hours that went into it. The transaction went along smoothly so there was nothing to be alarmed about. She came back for more work about 6 months later and I decided to do some checking up on her to see how her business was going. Immediately smack bang on the home page was my software being sold for $30/month. Needless to say I was outraged. She said there was no talk of a license which I responded with pulling out the contract that she signed where it explained that signing the contract meant she was in agreement with the specified license. 2 months after this started, I'm being awarded any profits made from said software along with her closing down the website. As much of a bitch as she was, it wasn't worth my time trying to get more out of her.5
The reason I wont be buying another iphone but instead switch to android:
- No yearly 100$ license to publish apps
- No mac required
- Heaphone jack16
--- NVIDIA announces PhysX SDK 4.0, open-sources 3.4 under modified BSD license ---
NVIDIA has announced a new version, 4.0, of PhysX, their physics simulation engine.
Its new features include:
- A "Temporal Gauss-Seidel Solver (TGS)", an algorithm used in this SDK to make things such as robots, character arms, etc. more robust to move around. NVIDIA demonstrates this in the video by making their old version of PhysX, 3.4, seem like an unpredictable mess, the robot demonstrating that version smashing a game of chess.
- New filtering rules for supposedly easier scalability in scenes containing lots of both moving and static objects.
- Faster queries in scenes with actors that have a lot of shapes attached to them, improving performance.
- PhysX can now be more easily used with Cmake-based projects.
In essence, better control over scenes and actors as well as performance improvements are what's new.
Furthermore, NVIDIA has released PhysX version 3.4 under the 3-Clause-BSD-license, except for game console platforms.
As NVIDIA will release the new version on December 20th, it will also be released under the same modified BSD license as PhysX 3.4 is now.
What are your thoughts on NVIDIA making a big move towards the open-source community by releasing PhysX under the BSD license? Feel free to let us know in the comments!
I have a 6 month license on PyCharm Professional Edition.
I don't think I'll be learning Python anytime soon, so if anyone wants to use it, go ahead and redeem it.
PS: Would be nice if you could comment that you used it, so that other people know that it's gone.32
Get my hunter license.
Become the pirate king.
An anime adaptation before we are 18.
Liberate Japan from Britannia.
Get Kokonotsu to take over the candy shop.
Kill my teacher before he wipes out humanity.
Kill all the kabane.
Kill all the titans.20
So people need to learn how to use a car in a safe manner and without pissing off other users before they get a license and are allowed to actually use one in the real world.
Sometimes, just sometimes, I wish this also applied to computers.2
Just wanna say I fucking LOVE..
... Open source
... GPL & MIT License
... more stuff
... TDDR (Too Dunk, Don’t Remember)
Most of us are complaining / ranting way more often about development and technology than we do appreciate it..
Just look at our great and unique community..
Im often angry but right now I remember how great the dev community is and I love it:)4
Little Jakob finds out you can open a js in (mobile) text editor.
Little Jakob finds an nether mod for early Minecraft PE editions (0.7 @ that time or so).
Little Jakob changes some number and vars and creates an Aether mod. (works the same like nether but other blocks&tools).
Little Jakob publishes it with screenshots in a video, gets 30.000+ views on youtube, mod reviews etc. There hasn't been an Aether mod before.
Little jakob feels badass.
2 years later I revited the video - and found out that the mod was licensed and I did something "illegal".
Seeked the internet and apologized to the original author (who was aware of this copy mod) - felt bad, he forgave me.1
My PyCharm student license is expiring and I am no longer a student.
I think I need to enroll for another program to activate my PyCharm license.17
Have people using React actually read the license agreement? Basically, if Facebook want your app, they can develop a similar, and revoke your license to React...14
So this guy starts a Kickstarter campaign to collect 50$ for his chicken nugget calculator app...
He wants 50$ to get a playstore license which costs 25$? (I think)
And then to make the app probably takes not even an hour.
I hope this is a joke haha8
Apache no doubt.
Reason? It is good, and it does not want to shove a commercial license into my throat like Nginx wants.15
Hi, rant. I've just finished one of my hobby work. :D
Just another O'RLY book cover generator, written in Golang/Vue, supporting more glyph like CJK.
You may try it on https://rly.nanmu.me/
Source code is available via MIT license on https://github.com/nanmu42/orly
So I met this chick on tinder, I kinder wanna know her, turns out, she is a hooker so she asked for money, I straight told her bitch please why pay for license when there is open-source3
A person just bought a 3000€ workstation and asked me to install cracked versions of Office, AutoCAD, full Adobe suite and Rhino with plugins. And he's going to use them at work to make money.
So, since I have to, I installed 2-3 years old versions of each, in English (he only knows Italian) and blocked all the connections so he can't receive any update/fix or use web related functionalities. I also disabled all autostarting components and contextual menu / OS integrations (although this can be seen as a plus).
When he's calling me asking to "fix" things, I will simply say "sorry, it's the only way for the crack to work, if you want everything you'd better pay for a license or else go open source".
Why can't people understand the value of the complex software they use? Just because it's not a material thing doesn't mean it's not a steal43
There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
and the scum of the world inhabit it
and its morals aren't worth what a pig can spit
and it's filled with people who are filled with shit
and it goes by the name of EU...
At the top of the hole sit a privileged few
making mockery of the vermin in the lower zoo
turning beauty to filth and greed...
by passing shit like article 11, 13, and 17.
for the corruption of men is as wondrous as Peru5
Okay, sublime text is amazing. Super fast and easy on the eyes. If I had $70 I would purchase a license.20
Just learned that the open source license from Facebook is shit
It says if u ever filed a patent case against Facebook or any of its subsideries organisation then your license to use Facebook open source stuff will be immediately revoked .36
Someone else here said that you could also get free Jetbrains products if you're a student.
Thank you very much.
I got the Student License!4
Lately, I see a lot of rants/comments/jokes about WinRAR and its eternal trial (algorithm, is that you?). Here's a nice video explaining why WinRAR chose it as its business model and how it works: https://youtu.be/fTgZRVVr3_Y
Spoiler alert: WinRAR is brilliant.
But use 7-zip or be a command line ninja.6
Our friendship should be perennial, should be perpetual and as eternal as that of a #WinRAR's 40 days trial license.
I work as a freelancer on *****.com also I have published a theme on theme***.com
Yesterday a indian client message
Client: wii you be able to help me to install a wp theme and customize it to my liking?
Me: sure why not, send me the link to that theme.
Client: here's the link (link to my theme)
Me: (oh i will make money from both side :D ) do yoy bought a license ?
Client: (shocked) who need license , download it from *****.com
Me: (crying in background)16
Every single time when trying to download JRE or JDK from Oracle I forget to tick it. Every single time. Like, just now. :)3
I finished two projects. Both of them need to connect to each other. However, the tool to do that is not currently licensed to achieve my desired outcome. I email my boss to check the status of the license key I need, that they promised, and the only thing I get back is "Correct." Seriously? 😠 The person who has the company credit card and authority to buy, also the same one that gives me a deadline to turn this shit in, can't give me the time of day to respond to an email? Their response wasn't even relevant. I've been trying to move beyond this roadblock for a week now! I'm a pretty independent guy, but I'm not going to buy the license myself for a tool that I didn't even want to use. So when someone comes to my cube and I'm raging on Steam, ✋ I don't want to hear anything about company time, because mine isn't being respected either. 👊👊
I'm so over the politics....
System team: So, we've rewritten the entire site and the stats are looking pretty great. We're more than a year into the two-month transition period, and hey, that's cool, no judgement. But now we're gonna hit a license expiration on the old site, so we need to shut it down, or otherwise pay a ridiculously big amount to renew the license.
Business: nooooooooo you can't shut down the old site!
Systems: but nobody is using it
Business: yes, they are
Systems: no, they're really not, we checked and everything
Systems: ok, well are you gonna pay for the license renewal?
Business: oh hell no
Systems: ok then we're shutting it down
Systems: ok, it's down
Business: how dare you! We didn't sign off on that! Bring it back immediately!
Systems: are you gonna pay the license?
Business: no! now bring it back!
Hoooly shit, I'm starting to love my university.
Yesterday or so, they offered me a 1TB lifetime Google Drive account.
Today they offered me a Microsoft Imagine account where I'm able to get any Microsoft license I want for free for 5 years!
(In Portugal! WTF!)
Win10, Office 2016, VSEnterprise or community 2017, SQL Server 2017, Azure!!!, etc!
I'm sorry to all the Linux people, I'm a Microsoft guy...26
I'm getting married on Friday.
I proposed half a year ago.
What have we done since the proposal?
- Adopted a Cnaani dog with a lot of issues and recovered her from most of them.
- went every Saturday to skydive for the whole day (almost finish the license!)
- moved apartment
- Plan and execute the wedding
- build wedding RSVP and teaser sites
- work full time as developers (me full-stack and she's an automation expert)
- go abroad twice
- I have work on a new startup with a friend (in version two right now)
- I hade my driver license classes
- went to salsa courses twice a week
- built our salsa wedding dance
- I studied Clojure, ruby on rails, Angular 2 and a little bit of React.
So why does it feel I haven't done enough?6
So if Verizon agreed to not SIM lock phones in order to get the the 700MHz Block C license aka LTE Band 13, and now they're SIM Locking phones, does that mean they're going to lose their LTE license?
Just kidding, that'd require an FCC with a spine. But it fucking should.3
So instead of using the budget of 7k$ to buy all the plugins the old developer needed, he torrented more than half of them and deployed the system
which ended up in 20 thousand users including companies reporting a breach, because avira etc reported some kind of drive-by scripts on the new website
what a fucking buffoon, the most annoying thing about this is, that all the plugins had a "license file", so I didn't even first get, where all that shit is coming from3
I remember opening an old script file on our server for scheduled tasks, and thinking to myself; What idiot wrote this mess? It's unnecessarily complex, solving the problem in a convoluted way. And of course, not a single line of comments.
After reading it through and through many times to understand what each line did I kept repeating to myself; What an imbecile... Being this stupid should be illegal... Coding should require some sort of license to prevent idiots from doing this!
Then of course, it slowly dawned on me. I had written this crap one year before. I'm the idiot... 😐
I've commented every line religiously since then.4
90% of rants about CSS are just people who don't even know CSS2 properly and never heard of CSS3.
That's like crying about not having a nice car without even owning a drivers license. Bullshit.14
Goals for 2019
- get a Raspberry Pi
- Land a job in development
- get my driver's license
- buy a car
- learn a new language (any suggestions?)
- rant more on DevRant
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE 🎇🎉11
I think Matlab was only invented to fuck with people. Yeah, let's start indices with 1. Oh, and set copy and paste on Ctrl+W and and Alt+Y.
You didn't save your code? Too bad, the network went down and I lost the license.3
*finishes MATLAB course*
My blanket when I wake up and think about my expired license which I won't renew:7
Apple is now forcing 2 factor authentication for publishing apps on the App Store. Except not just regular 2 factor, 2 factor via AppleId. Which means you have to have the AppleID on 2 different Apple devices! You now have to have a Mac and another Apple device to ship an app and you still have to pay $100/yr for the license.
Hell I usually like Apple stuff but this has gone so fucking far off the rails.10
The fucking moment you have to give up on your cool project or slow it down due to fucking legal reasons.
Government i will just say one sentence to you:
"Fuck YOU !!!!!!!!"
You limit the fucking use of tech to the point that we cant do really cool shit. If it wasnt for some laws then we could do some really fucking cool shit. I mean really cool. People would be suprised whats possible but oh well they will never see it because laws dont allow us to do it without paying for license that is fucking expensive.
Everybody says they want the tech to go forward but we cant with those laws. They dont allow us to do it. Well they do but you need to pay for license for each device and that puts it too expensive for normal consumer.
So yeah. ALLOW US TO DO COOL SHIT FOR PEOPLE OR GO FUCK YOURSELVES !!!!13
I fucking hate that PHPStorm is the only valid option for serious PHP framework development.
It's the opposite of free in every imaginable way: Expensive subscription license, hard to fully customize, closed source.
But there's just nothing even approaching the intelligence of intellisense. There are plugins for Vim, Atom, Sublime and VSCode which try to emulate it, but they are so fucking basic and dumb.
Me: Hey can you sign up for tool X. Our company has an enterprise license, theres an internal form to fill out.
Him: Sure, I filled out a form and it says i'm on a waiting list, not sure if I used the right link.
Me: Was it a form on our companies intranet site?
Me: Did it say tool X on the top?
Me: Did it say sign up / create account?
Me: So I asked you to sign up for tool X under our companies license. You went onto our companies intranet, and filled out a form for that tool, that said create an account ... where exactly is the confusion? If there was more than one way to do it, I probably would have said something.5
Head of department: Do we have license key for ubuntu os on our systems?
Lab assistant: Yess!!
Everyone else: No!!! It is open source
HOD leaves without saying a word after that
Dear font creating/licensing world,
fuck you and your stupid license models from the dark ages.
If I use your font to print a few million newspapers is ok and only about 50 bucks but if I want to include it on my website is going to cost me my first born son for every 50k requests?
No making an image and including is not fucking in the mobile first era...
Now I have to use fonts from Google because they are least fucking understand the needs of our times (in terms of font licensing)19
Wtf is going on with developers these days?
I just applied for a job (through some online job thing) for the holidays and they had questions like "Do you have relatives working for our company?" and I'm like noooo. So when I wanted to submit the form the field of my relatives name working for the company was marked with a notice "pls fill me in". And that was not the only field behaving like that. There were like 10 of them.
So now I wanted to install mono develop to learn some c# and gui development and they give me this9
Fuck Facebook and its "BSD + patents" license. That is not how open source works and should never have to.13
Now I have to register on oracle website with a my company name and work phone before i can download jre or jdk. That's it boys and girls. You're unemployed? No minecraft for you!20
I'm officially becoming legal and losing my FBI license in less than 24 hours :/
I miss being 17 and below now22
Only I Silicon Valley...
I took this photo of the car I front of me. I what’re what job he does 😇😛7
Being a developer is like being a mechanic at a car manufacturer. Except that everybody else in the company is completely clueless about how a car actually works and the client doesn't have a license.1
Just find a kind of opensource license shorted as WTFPL, which means "Do What The Fuck You Want To Public License"😂😂😂5
I went to uninstall Adobe Acrobat because our organization uses another PDF reader and now I keep getting annoying pop-ups from Adobe like "update failed" and "license expired".
This PDF READER... USES 7.1 GIGABYTES OF STORAGE.
We talk about Video games being bloated today but HOLY FUCK. This is literally JUST A PDF READER WHAT THE FUCK.
Can't do screenshot cus work PC.19
How do u validate the license key of your offline application ?
(In a way that a cracker would have less chance to find the serial like this )23
The best software license ever seen :
my patches and additions on top of Ian's code are licensed under the ABSE ("Anyone But Stefan Esser") license.
note that an additional exception to the license is added, forbidding use/redistribution of said content to his
trainees as well, but only when in a 5 mile radius from "Stefan Esser" or while holding any sort of (video)conference/chat with him.
note that this license will only be used as long as what would capstone decode / that one other arm64 ida
plugin thing by i0n1c ("Stefan Esser") are not under the MIT license.
afterwards, all exceptions are cleared and basically WTFPL applies
if you need a copy of the rest of the license feel free to google it or something.3
This is quite possibly the best thing ever written. (Pay attention to the licence)
FUCK ALL THOSE MONKEYS THAT WROTE ALL THE SHITTY CODE WHICH I'VE SPENT THE MAJORITY OF MY DAYS HAVING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE SHIT IT DOES AND WHY I CAN'T JUST BURN IT....
AND WHY THE FUCK DO BUSINESS USERS SEEM TO THINK THAT DEVELOPERS CAN UNDERSTAND ALL THEIR BUSINESS TALK...
IF I UNDERSTAND ALL OF WHAT YOU DO, YOU WILL BE OUT OF A JOB....
P.S. APPARENTLY ONE OF MY MEDS SIDE EFFECTS ARE INCREASED IRRATIBILTY. THE SLIGHTEST ANNOYANCES NOW PISS ME OFF...
SO APPARENTLY THAT MEANS I HAVE A FREE LICENSE TO BLOW UP N RANT ON THE JOB RIGHT?
Slapping idiots around.
This needs to be a trend.
Actual rant :
I'm sitting in this idiot haven completing my mandatory hours doing nothing. Earlier I would spend this time learning stuff but I'm too fed up to do anything. This place is driving me mad and just today I had to suffer through more madness that is blocking me from resolving a bug.(I don't have the license to run the product I'm supposed to be fixing)
The number of inept idiots is too damn high. I try not to be bothered but I can only try so much.4
Okay.. Serious question.
I have a game. And a license that i have to provide a name for.
..I'm transgender, and have get to get a legal name change...
Do I /have/ to claim it under my birth name? (I don't own a company, so i assume the answer is yes.)24
PM emails me a zip file with the message "Can you give the attached a look and get it to work. See email below that there are some items missing to make it run."
Items missing : 3 custom libraries, 2 sql databases, 3 custom sql tables, and oh yeah the license to the program it runs on.1
In a license reporting software, took them 1,5 years to fix!
If we hadn't specifically requested how to run this software with lesser privileged accounts, it would have had access to all our customer's machines.2
i'm sorry but i am just FORCED to share the recent dialogue with my friend.
he bought a winrar license and got a 4digit customer number4
I'm wanting to try and develop an Android app, but I want to include Add and a paid version.. what's a good closed-source license? (I'm used to working with GPLv3)
I basically want to hold all rights and disallow modification and distribution.10
Guys checkout my first UI widget for android here
Feel free to use the widget wherever you want, I havent yet added the license because I'm lazy but its apache 2.0 so enjoy.3
Me: closes eyes and says to myself how I MUST get some sleep..
My brain: *starts thinking about keywords MUST, SHOULD, REQUIRED and how those are defined in RFC-2119*
Why I just can't get some normal sleep, could it be licensing issue with my brain? 🙈2
Seattle's light rail transit signs are just a full screen Chrome web browser. On another crash, I saw a Windows blue screen. Why would you pay for a Windows license just to run a browser that displays transit times?6
Old but gold.
True Story, and they named another child: "help I'm stuck in a car license factory" imagine that license1
bought a windows license
built the pc
booted from usb
ask for license, put in bought license
installation seems normal
... windows isn't activated ... what?? how?? why is there a different key from the one i just entered?? and why does it still deny it when i try to change the key to my bought one?? y u do dis?😩
does anyone have an idea, what could be causing that?34
DOOM for 7€ ? Ouuu yeah. Downloading and well fuck i run over the 100GB limit ISP set. Then i realized its sunday and limit will reset on monday but i want to play now fuuuuuckkkkkkkk. I really need better ISP cause this shit really sucks. 100GB is nothing for me. Thats 2 android sources with shallow. But i cant switch because of 2 years of license with them. This is fucked up.14
I just bought a personal license for a Jetbrains product, in this case Rider.
Jetbrains is one of those companies that I'm so happy with that I'm willing to actually spend money on a product of theirs.
So thanks for existing <32
Me (out loud in a meeting): "we currently have a SQL Express license, but the traffic with the additional servers is causing crashes when the cache fills up. We need to upgrade to the standard version.”
Follow up email from mngr planning to retire in 6 months currently making roughly 3x my salary: "See if we can get a proposal to purchase better Sequel software and install."
(-_-;) ... ಠ︵ಠ ...
So somehow paid version of my app is available somewhere for free (old version of the app though). People are downloading it, and will obviously see the invalid license message. There is an option in that case to mail the developer just in case there was something wrong with the license checking, and guess what? Those people are mailing to me about invalid license. 😂😂😂😂3
Again I ended working for a company where people love to pride themselves because they're 'agile'.
Basically they bought A JIRA license, that's all.
The CTO decides the estimates privately.
He assign the stories.
No idea what's a retrospective.
The sprint ends whenever he wants.
New stories continuosly added to the active sprint.
That's the risk of agile, unchecked power.3
Finally my employer managed to pay for the upgrade license to have 80 instead of 40 seats in our CI tool. Took only 4 months. Guess who is currently using 110 seats. 😓2
Ever had that frustrating moment that the customer overreacts a small issue into a big issue? Just happened to me today.
Client: "Hey can you check why we are not getting any software update/patches to our firewall?"
Me: "OK. Lemme check"
** Checking **
Me: "I found that its not getting the latest updates because the license file registered has a product serial # mismatch with their support site. You can see it clearly here..."
Client: "THAT'S TERRIBLE!! QUICK!! MAKE IT A PRIORITY 1 ISSUE AND HAVE IT RESOLVE ASAP!!!"
Got an email from an extension developer who releases code under GPL. Had a list of all sites using "our copy" of his software and demanding that we pay twice as much now for download access. We've only asked for support on one domain ever so this feels like an underhanded way to treat customers when your software is supposed to be GPL.
Absolutely need his product so we paid it. Feeling very annoyed that GPL software license isn't really being honored. And it's creepy that he's tracking it that way.5
The Windows vista laptop running in the driving school with unpaid Kaspersky Security, offline 24/7, not updated since ever. Windows Update won't even open.4
After 18 months of failures and frustration I finally got a driving license... damn it feels good :)3
If the Kenya ICT bill will be passed into law, it will soon be illegal to write any code as a developer or engineer or practice any ICT career without a license ($460 per year) or without a college degree 😢8
Came across an app that I really liked, but unfortunately, development has ceased for it. That also means I can't pay for it in order to get a license key. So what's a developer to do?
After decompiling it, I placed inside the code that I paid for the app 😂
.field public static final MARKET:Ljava/lang/String; = "paid"
After being a miserly bastard and settling on VirtualBox for my VM needs on OSX, I downloaded a Parallels trial a couple weeks back, and today, I'm happy to announce I bought a license!
VirtualBox can go do one.
I've ditched Studio for Rider, and now Parallels, what has the world come to when a dev actually buys software?!
The end is nigh I say, nigh.2
I see loads of rants complaining about getting asked for tech help. And then I see Linux getting recommended as an OS.
Me? I'm telling everyone to use ChromeOS so they leave me the fuck alone.
In the future, I'll tell everyone they are too fucking stupid to own a computer and phone is the way to go.
Systems thinking, people.1
I'm raging all over the place at the moment. I've just inherited possibly the worst PHP project (Codeigniter) in 10 years.
Apart from the fact that the previous developer has created 87 different header and footer files (same content, but each screen has different footer file for some reason, i.e. footer-login.php, header-login.php, footer-profile.php, header-profile.php etc.), he seems to like adding the following comment all over the place: "Released under MIT license: http://opensource.org/licenses/..." to some how protect is shitty code. I mean take a look at the below of some high quality,propriety Jquery he's written, under MIT.4
I wish more workplaces realised how stupid it is to quibble, argue, debate etc. about stupid things like buying Devs intellij licenses. I mean sure, we'll throw a meeting to discuss it, argue back and forth, ignore questions about why the sales guys always get any new tools they want, and then waste more on meeting time than the damn license would have cost... Great idea...1
So apparently there's going to be some sort of "link tax" for creating hyperlinks to other peoples websites.
What's next is the EU government going to start requiring people to register a license to run a webserver on their computer?5
Does anyone have experience with alternatives like Preact in industry?
Asking because Facebook has mind numbing license clause which means they can infringe any patent they please, because as soon as we sue, they withdraw our license.
Such a lovely way of supporting startups.3
Sometime ago in my previous job an IT prick decided to troll developers by blocking access to stack overflow in our offices. It coincided with a settlement case of a few million dollars that our company had to pay because some idiot copied code illegally.
It was one of the most confusing hours of my life : a few hundred developers looking at each other and laughing in the weirdest fashion.
We sure shat some bricks.2
We're all on gradle and we had a new guy who started a project with Maven. He also used atom editor for Java/Scala code (even though we had a license for Intellij), and refused to use anything with code completion (or turned it off if there was an option). My boss had to explain basic git branching to him, his pull requests were missing build files, READMEs and he'd check in tons of scripts to run things instead of using maven/gradle.
I just thought he was weird, but I didn't look at his pull requests close enough to realize how bad his code was, until they fired him earlier this week.
Pirated MS office was so much better than the paid one. I never once had a banner pop-up and tell me that i didn't have a license 😖
Now, that i do have the license, the banner has made it a habit to pop-up whenever i work on something important 🤦8
TIL in China you need to get a government issued license to run a website. Wouldn't surprise me if the EU started taking cards from their playbook.3
My company provides license for Intellij IDEA Ultimate but I've customised my Vim for development according to my convenience so I use Vim instead.
Except for changing variable names across multiple files. IDEA's refactoring is the only thing I am using IDEA for.6
i cant stand these idiots anymore. My instructor needed 12 Minutes to understand Megabyte and Mebibyte. He just used the snipping tool to save an SVG from Wikipedia. My instructor is an Person who wrote small Programs in the past and thought that an instructor license is something useful. It hurts listening to him. he was kept busy for hours because of nothing, so we could only twiddle our thumbs. our first instructor went probably because of the Management.
At the beginning of June I will give my lecture for my final exam.
I am fucked.3
When your small minded boss wants to make the company apps on Delphi firemonkey because it would save time. But won't pay for its 2k USD license and the crack makes the heavy ide crash all the time :(4
If every car in the city does have a license plate but this one particular car doesn’t, it’s not anonymous, it’s easily determined as “that one car without a license plate”.
If every request does have a source but only the CIA ones don’t, they are not anonymous because “no source huh, it’s CIA”.
For governmental agencies to be anonymous they need everyone else to be anonymous so they can blend in.
So they created a network. This network called Tor.
But no, tOr iS cReTeD bY cOpS sToP bEiNg a ShEeP
(I know that you theoretically can be tracked even if you use tor, my rant is not about this)5
Today my boss granted the intellij Ultimate license. It's a good day.
(even though eclipse isn't that bad I like intellij more)1
I've found a very interesting paper in AI/ML (😱😱 type of papers), but I was not able to find the accompanying code or any implementation. After nearly a month I checked the paper again and found a link to a GitHub repo containing the implementation code (turned out they updated the paper). I was thinking of using this paper in one of my side projects, but the code is licensed under "Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License". The question is to what extent this license is applicable? Anyone here has experience in this? thanks13
Apparently, as a front end developer, I do not need a Creative Cloud license anymore. I will have to rely on the Designers to cut up all my assets.
I could barely hold a straight face while I posted this rant.3
Pet peeve of the day: Open source software that shouts about all the benefits of being freely available to everyone, open, loving the community, etc. - but the moment you install it you have to jump through a bunch of hoops to avoid making a hefty donation or buying a license.
If you're aiming to be a corporate overlord, at least admit to it and don't play all your marketing on the open source aspect.3
My first django website going into dev environment. (Management portal for company's license management)
I know there will be a river of bugs but, still I'm happy.
Also, this was the first assignment on my first job.
Wow just realized Simpsons had an episode on crypto... all the way back in February.
If only the the MVC would actually mail me my new drivers license that I renewed almost 6 months ago... I could actually buy some... (exchanges require ID verification, so much for anonymity ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)6
A brain whenever someone is working on a project:
Does the person I control have motivation? If so, I remember the person of another task so he/she/helicopter can't work on it.
Does the person I control have time?
If so, I set the person's motivation level to zero.
After this extremely accurate research I think we are better of by removing our brain.
BTW, I publish this research here under the MIT license.3
That moment when someone asks you, if they can get a Microsoft Office license for free from you.
Admit it! We have all tried it.4
His long do you think it will take for Google to come up with a true replacement for Java. A replacement, not an alternative like Kotlin, but a complete "go f**k yourself, Larry" replacement that anyone can port their Java app over to. On January 1, if you are a for profit, Larry had said if you want to update to the next version and use Java SE to code with, you need a support license. It's a brill move, because Java is everywhere, and at least for a little while, it will generate a respectable profit for Oracle. But I'm sure Google is working on something to stick it to Larry. Wonder if EU competition chief Vestager will threaten am investigation. This should be fun to watch.19
WHY WOULD A LICENSE WORK FOR A BACKUP SOFTWARE ONCE, AND THEN NOT BE RECOGNIZED?!
I haaaaaaaaate shoddy license management.
Oh and Sage is an awful company with terrible software as well.2
So, I don't have any idea about copyright law. I've heard, that React is bad, as it has a `if you sue or in any way "compete" against us, we revoke your licence` clause.
So how bad is this? Is this really a thing, unless you either sue FB, or they try to buy you (which are both not very probable for small companies). Could someone who knows their shit give me a tl;dr summary (or feel free to debate)
What I've found so far: https://github.com/facebook/react/... which seams to be kind of ok.
This would be the patent: https://github.com/facebook/react/...5
True its a two days old story but now ReactJs 16 is out, and license is now MIT.
this is a good way to start my day :)
- Your windows license will expire soon
- Yeah sure, thanks buddy I will renew it.
- Your windows license will expire soon
- Yeah yeah I know it thanks.
- Your windows license will expire soon
- Yes, stop please.
- Your windows license will expire soon
- Your windows license will expire soon

I'm in big dilemma for a few days. About what to do to my HP stream. It was bought from overseas so it has licensed windows 10. It only has got 32GB for storage. And I only have like 1GB 2GB free space. I am using it for presentation, urgent quick code debug, watching movies and browsing internet.
So the dilemma is should I abandon the license windows 10 and install a lightweight Linux distro or not? 🤔36
How to create an installer according to ST microelectronics.
Display the entire license agreement using more.
At the end of this massive license agreement there is a y/n "do you accept". If you press any key other than y you have to start over.
So you have to slowly press enter for 5 minutes so you don't miss the confirmation which you will inevitably do multiple times anyway.
Also make this the last step in the installation so you have to waste time and bandwidth redownloading everything.6
So, project needs vive headset + unity.
Set up done, unity project made, set up, plug the two, start tweaking, fixing stuff... Aaaaand need to tweak the script. Double click, MS studio comes up... Need to reactive the license...
I don't have a personal license (and I never will get one either, given how many times microshit has been a major pain in my glorious ass, I tend to avoid their shithole of products at all costs. Somebody else actually gave me access for this project.
So, that doesn't work, goes to download a free version, aaaaaaand apparently my level of access doesn't allow me to install this one.
Notepad++ it is. 😶2
So we have an internal license server for intellij.
Installed idea, tried to connect to license server. It wouldn't connect.
Got at least, 10 devs and the admin to look at the problem. No one could find why it was not connecting.
After full 2 hours someone got the idea, came to my laptop and fixed it. Turns out windows firewall was blocking all requests from intellij.
I just bought a laptop (without OS, so i can put on linux without buying a useless windows license) on Amazon and now i can't wait for that2
My Current goals:
1. get new glasses for first time in 4 years
2. get permit then license then get my first car
3. get a new job that doesn't make me wanna kill myself every day and i actually feel like i'm doing something (car opens up distance opportunities)
4. figure out new goals2
Had been to an interview today. It was renowned Bank which was hiring for a position of SSE.
You know what!! I was not allowed inside the building because I was not carrying my original driving license with me. What the fuck?? 😡😠Even traffic police won't ask for an original license!! (at least in India)5
One day my jetbrains student license will expire and i will have to go back to the world of ugly, no auto fill editors ;_;8
When I talk about release a personal project to GNU/GPL license (when it's finished, some day) people looks at me like "wow, be careful". It makes me think about the mythology around silicon valley and how the idea of writing a killer app or a nice machine and instantly grow rich became a standard, even when it's terribly wrong and false...2
I build my friend's pc
He didn't had windows
The site where we bought the oem license was messed up
and yes... I had to use teamviewer to disable his adblocker...
Oh, and 12 hours later to activate windows...
And yes, it was me spending 10 minutes on the phone to acivate his windows key since we got a already used license...
Adding it up, including the whatsapp remote support, If I would st art charing I would get rich...1
Not just dev goals.
-Stable relationship with [Redacted]
-Finish my projects
-Get new SSD
-Finally get paid for the DLR project
-Not fucking up my exams
-Finish my blacksmithing idea/project
-Play a good game that's not Destiny2
-Think positively for once4
Old boss: Can you tell me why we need to purchase Mac?
Me: Because we are all using Mac in HK and UK offices and we can share the company license
Old boss: Why can't we just purchase the software license in Windows?
Me: Because it is expensive, and the total cost will be much more than purchasing the Mac alone
Old boss: I still don't understand why we need to purchase Mac.
Me: Ok. (Walked away with approval form. Finally got the approval from UK office)
My old boss was the only person that using Windows!!3
What IDE to use on Ubuntu?
Hey guys, just recently started getting into Ubuntu & Linux, and I need some recommendations for a good IDE (or just an editor). I want to program C, C++ as main priorities, but want an IDE that isn't locked to only one language :) Been looking at Sublime Text, and while it looks cool and easy to use, I'd prefer something that didn't require a license..
Hope you guys can help out, any help is appreciated :)20
I'm crying internally. The project(s) i work on have configuration files with dev and prod-info, the prod is just commented out. But thanks to reasons everyone has a different dev environment so there are many dev-config-blocks. I just use mine and carry on, BUT SOMEONE ALWAYS COMMITS THOSE FILES. I JUST THOUGHT OF IT NOW, BUT I'LL PUT THOSE FILES ON A BLACKLIST. FROM NOW ON YOU CAN ONLY COMMIT THESE FILES DURING A FULL MOON.
There's also this codebase to create licenses for our products. The license data fpr every customer is there, commented out. If you wanted to create another license, comment something and comment out another thing and you're good to go. THAT'S NOT WHAT VERSIONING IS FOR.4
There's like one guy in the office who actually knows anything about the software we sell. It's a mess of bolted together chunks of code from different client projects (that the clients have paid for and continue to pay a license fee for) we just cherry pick the best bits and repackage it for the next release.3
People don't read them.
They are longer than they should be.
Mostly to hide evil shit the developers are doing.
I am now going to start including the complete works of Shakespeare in my license files.
This means it will have evil shit other people have done included in the file. Will most likely make it meaningless. Nobody will read it anyway.
At the very end I will just write: Don't be a dick.4
Only open source projects under a CC-BY-SA 3.0 license can legally use even one line of StackOverflow.
That site's user contributions are all under a free license that demands all copies to use the same license. Does someone know if I'm wrong on this?
After months of waiting, I finally got a license for visual studio 2015. I'm far more excited than I should be...10
I told my boss that Adobe ColdFusion will cost us 8k for Enterprise license. He said that he will look for the free license key (pirated) online tonight.
I feel sorry for the developers of Adobe ColdFusion.
**I move away from the mic to prepare for the --'s
Lol @ GPL... No license which proposes a restriction on the user's actions can be considered "free as in freedom".
The MIT license comes close, but mandates the inclusion of a copy of the license.
The WTFPL, while designed to use humor to bring attention to this very problem, still fails in its goal by incorrectly stating that "changing [the license] is allowed as long as the name is changed". Wrong: it's allowed because anybody is allowed to type what they want into a text document.
The only good one I've found is the Unlicense (http://unlicense.org). Unlike the others, it's not a prescription for what you may do with your own property, under threat of force; it's simply a friendly notice that you actually respect the rights of the user and would never imagine legally violating them.2
The last one and only one I joined was online and called “flex bug squash”.
It was about ~8-9 years ago.
I won Flex Builder desktop software license and I was using it after so I think it was cool.
Fun, creative times it was.
That was also first and last significant thing I won and then Steve killed flash on mobile and as a result killed flash.
Thanks Steve if you’re reading this.
I know and I understand why people still opt for Windows but if they also try to pirate it, that's the only time to tell them to go get Linux. If they're too cheap to get the Windows license, go Linux.4
working on a big app, developing front and backend while being focussed on design.
when you have more than 20 different layouts and you're forced to use license free stuff, life's getting harder every day.
why is material design so nice ;(2
Well, I was working on VS 2017 for 3 month with an evaluation license. I finally get a VS2015 license juste one day before it expires. Hope it won't lead to compatibility issues3
I just got an some ESP32 so I started playing with idf by espressif that it's released under apache 2.0.
So i thought "it's open source"
I spent 10 minutes searching for low level WiFi and BLE APIs on github.
Then I found an old issue
where an espressif dev says:
"The low level Bluetooth & WiFi implementations are proprietary"
they distribute Binary files in another repo also under apache 2.0.
-- (obviuosly) except reverse engineering.1
Now this is not from personal experience but I recently learned a game I love (openTTD) was removed from iTunes because of its GPL license. Now, idk maybe this is common knowledge or maybe it's completely false. But assuming it's true, what the fuck apple???10
The code is under "GNU General public license as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 or any later version" and I used it as a reference.
Should I redistribute the my new code under the same licence and make the source open? Should I make just the component open source or the entire app?2
What the actual fuck, Cisco!? You have to buy a fucking license to use all the ports in a Cisco ASA router?
So I got a large speeding ticket last July where I was supposed to have my license suspended for a month. A few weeks later it turned out to just be a fine.
AND NOW! SIX FUCKING MONTS LATER! They send me a letter again that my license will be suspended anyway! Well now I can either eat dick by essetially having to use 2h public transport to get to work. (would be a 30min drive) Or grind my teeth out at the local police station to get the measured speed down by 1 Kmh which would (by law) result in me having only the already paid fine.
At the moment I want to give the latter a try.
Now, I know I was definetly speeding back then as I was overtaking a lorry. But the measured speed seems excessive for a ~70hp car. Which might get them to reconsider.13
I've been dismissing the Sublime Text 3 "unregistered evaluation copy" alert for almost 4 years now, and I never actually considered to buy a license. Then I realized that everybody I know didn't.
TFW idiots use FFmpeg without looking at the license, and then spend two months compiling it themselves.2
To all who were influenced by the React license thing, watch this:
It's a really good explanation of the situation and how software patents and licenses work
PS. FunFunFunction does really cool videos about JS and functional programming so also check out his other stuff if you're into that kind of thing2
There was a DB error which made my student card invalid which means that when my JetBrains license expired I couldn't extend it. Now I can't use it at all so all of my projects are stalling :/1
I love Microsoft softwares and Apple hardware but I try to keep them away from me to prefer free softwares or at least MIT license things.
That's something that makes me feel guilty.4
I bought a MacBook Pro Retina wanting to upgrade the memory, then realized the Retina models have it soldered onto the motherboard.
I need to run Visual Studio for ASP.NET development but can't fathom paying $80 for a Parallels license at the moment. I've tried VirtualBox, but the RAM usage is really high for the 4GB I'm limited to.
I’m working on buying a license from a company with completely opaque pricing. To the point they are asking me what I want to pay and then getting offended with I low ball them! WTF do you expect?! List some freaking prices.1
To all who fancy MS being a platinum member of Linux Foundation and all that "love" which MS so loudly screams around. MS and Canonical are working together. Unity was only the beginning.
You do realise if Linus, the owner or Linux's GPL ( https://kernel.org/pub/linux/... ) dies it might lead to catastrophe, right? An owner of a license can make exceptions in license.
A man has limited time. A company can wait..2
Freeware text||code editor for really, really big files? Like let's say, a non-laggy editor capable of editing && viewing 100+ GB text||code||log files... Notepad++ has it's problems there and the license model of UltraEdit doesn't allow a productive use for people not being a millionaire...10
Monitoring tools madness: quest foglight.
So, setting a blackout for an FMS "HA cluster" (which does not work due to a bug infested custom jboss implementation) can bring the servers down... And no way to bring them back up.
This brilliant piece of enterprise APM software costs 600.000€ for a 5year license.
I,ve added more drama (logs, threaddumps, support bundles and screenshots) to the support portal...
45 cases now in total, oldest case still open date 2017...
Fuck you quest software4
The way I understand software licenses.
Cool bro MIT: Free to do whatever you want as long as you include a copy of the license and you can't hold the original accountable.
fair dude Apache 2.0: Like the MIT license but more bureaucratic and few more minor things you need to keep track of.
scumbag GPL: free as in the same way that prison food is free. used by java in gotcha cases as a source of revenue because no one understands java licensing. Often used in the form of a deterrent so you never dare to open up the github page.
scumbag GPL who, realising they have no friends, becomes slightly less of a dick LGPL: But please stop using this and use our more restrictive "freedom" license.
I am not a lawyer. This is not legal advice.13
I used to work for an owner of a company that just would not order/buy anything that we needed. If we were running out of a license for something, he would wait until at least a week after it expired to renew it. We lost so many sales and trust from people because of that fuck.
can you recommend a graph database? I already tried orientdb but was really disappointed. The performance was quite good but I stumbled across a lot of bugs during my tests (even managed to corrupt the database during normal operation). So I am looking for a graph database that's a little bit more mature. I heard a lot of great things about neo4j..but I am not 100% comfortable with the license costs. Are there any alternatives?6
got my jetbrains studemt license renewal.
now i just nees to get remote programming on my pi up and running and then i have another excuse for not studying for university.
So, what license should i use for: feel free to use in your projects and modify, but if that project makes money, PAY UP OR FUCK OFF?1
Is there like a "You can see but can't touch" software license? Or like you can't use it commercially or distribute it? 🤔1
Is it legal that the day you're out for license, the project manager change your password and enter your email?6
How to sow the seeds of panic in a dev organization. Pop up a message that your BitBucket license has expired and you can't push code changes until it is renewed. Happened today. Amazing how fast the corporate cogs can turn when productivity is on hold and you still have to pay the devs.
Why is there so much code online, seemingly written by people who know what they are doing, but there are like 20 files all containing the license that takes up 50 lines and the 51st like is just a one line interface declaration who does this shit3
New startup - our backend stack is php, js, mysql, mongo & redis
Can you guys recommend nice-to-have internal tools that could make out lifes easier? We’ve been using confluence so far and thinking on grabbing a jira license.
Any advice is helpful 🤪11
I know it just keeps honest people honest, but if you were going to create a license file for a product; how would you go about it?1
So after a month and a half without my PC, and thus only using Linux as my main platform, I turned the thing on.
Man, Windows is weird after not using it for so long. Got up to speed pretty quickly though. Also found out that my college license for Visual Studio expired so fuck you, college.2
How I hate all those people who think VisualStudio Code is Open Source. It's not! Read the f*cking license!
In fact, you aren't even allowed to inspect its network traffic. Not to mention reverse engineering. That's nowhere near OpenSource.
You sure can download the source code, licensed as MIT, but building it won't give you the same piece of software.
Don't believe in everything someone tells you. Use your brain and check the facts.12
If you driving a FUCKing Peugeot 107, don't FUCKing start to tailgate me, m'kay?!
Especially not on the highway imbecile fuckwit!
Because, I know for a fact that the rusty boneshaking rattletrap, that you call a car won't be able to overtake anyway!!
FUCKing dork, safety distance heard of it?
I bet my left nut, that you draw your drivers license in legoland.1
I spent the whole day of yesterday trying to install the windows anniversary update after a clean Windows installation. Every time i tried to update it would go through 30% completion and then... BSOD, claiming that i didnt had a boot device. WUT? Anyway, after 5h of research and no success, i created a bootable usb installer and tried to install Windows 10 Education (which is my license). After the 1st restart... Error: Windows could not complete the installation. OH GOD WHY ME? After another hour i figured it out. Somehow i needed to install the version Windows Home and after the installation update to Student. DAMN WHAT A DAY...2
If you write a solution to something at work, then the company most likely holds ownership with whatever license they have.
However if you rewrite that solution in your spare time, into a package that solves the same problem but different then replace (with permission to) the original implementation with the new one..
Can said company then claim ownership on your package?3
I need to practice to get my driving license.
Since I can't ditch work or university, what should I take time from?
- Personal projects.
- Spending time with my girlfriend.
How to force a docker container to take the MAC address of host machine? I know net=host and mac-address arguments can be used. But is there a way to get actual host MAC address even though mac-address argument is passed with some other value?
My usecase is node locked licensing using FlexLM which creates license on the basis of MAC address of node.5
I Paid 32€ for this world atlas.
When I'm in the Premium area I can only see maps in a craptastic quality.
When I download your "Online Globe" software thing I can't make it flat, but can draw on it (it's buggy, slow and weired to use) and your menu from 1990 I guess don't has a print option.
And when I want to use your digital Version of the atlas I would need a license for 4€???
First post woo
So I need some opinions guys...
Just started a new job and they are trying to force me to use eclipse rather than IntelliJ (which I have used for a good while )
I have asked for their reasoning and they simply say it's so everyone is using the same thing in the team , I think this is a pretty crap reason , especially when all the projects are created in maven , what do you all think ? Am I being unreasonable ? P.S I pay for the license myself5
I am done with NetBeans! This damn fucking stupid shit of software 😤. PhpStorm let me feel I am in heaven 😍.
Today I have setuped new system. Pray for convincing my boss to fork some license for me within the next 30 days 🙏🙏🙏.2
I got a really really fast computer from my previous employer with a valid windows 10 license (Enterprise) as a farewell gift when I left them in December 2016.
Yesterday my 3 year old daughter magically entered the Windows Activation window and entered a bogus key.
Since my previous boss doesn't work there anymore and you have to log into the corporate domain to re-enter a valid corporate key.. I was forced to buy a valid key.
Well, at least now the license is mine. But it was expensive...3
Honestly... I was checking the notebooks they use at work, because they were having problems with performance, and not only were they using win8, they were running without a license key, even though the notebook they use comes with win10. Someone messed up. I found a way to restore the original copy with the license, so all good i guess?6
Some guy posted an issue on my repo asking about my license and whether he could add my app to F-Droid, does anyone have an experience with that?4
GPL or MIT License ? What you guys prefer to contribute, use, or whatever on Open Source software?10
When you see: "Agreeing to the Xcode/iOS license requires admin privileges, please re-run as root via sudo." in the Jenkins console log and realize that XCode was updated.
Not a rant but a helping request.
A friend of mine just asked me if I can make an ERP System for his father, he wants to take control of the inventory, and the merchandise decrease.
Any advice of which database would be better for this job since I don't think he is going to pay for a license or something like that.
I was thinking using MySQL and C# or maybe Java.
Any comment is well appreciated ☺️7
After ten reinstallation, finally ready my first Virtual Machine fully operative with FreeBSD.
An OS full of surprise for a Arch-fag like me.
It's just like Arch, but without complicated simple things. Even if the raw system don't have anything on, in ten minutes is a fully operative system with even a configurated Desktop Enviroment.
The malus: driver. Not every machine can be the host for FreeBSD, for example AMD GPU can't send audio channel throw the hdmi port.
Personally i love the BSD License, so i think this OS will be my permanent one after Windows 101
Shall I switch to vs code?
I have been using sublime text for years and the sublime merge works well with it. And I did buy license since I love it. Idk if I should switch or not8
today I learned how to license a git hub project have I finally made it to intermediate developer?
------if Ur interested in a little something I did just for fun--------
So we're approaching the end of WebStorm license subscription. Got notified about renewal. Then there's this question... Should we
1. not renew, use the fallback version (2018 something) because we don't need that many updates anyway and renew next year to get essentially a 50% off discount, or
2. renew and get the 20% off discount?
Asking for my boss lol4
In retrospection to the uproar about Qt tightening its license in a move against probably its biggest user (KDE), what do you think KDE should do from now on? Should they just trust Qt? Should they take measures? Should they fork Qt? Or, in a moment of utter madness, nuke everything and go Gtk?
Please give your opinions/experience, I'm tired of meetings with the legal team. :(
Can a proprietary software link to a GPL-licensed dependency during runtime?
Can it do if its GPL "with Classpath Exception"? What about CDDL?
Case in point - propriety Java web app needs javax.* libraries (JakartaEE components) at runtime (from project or JavaEE app server), but they are licensed under GPL.
Can they be used or is there any workaround?6
Missed the fucking bus to work because they changed up the times here without prior notice...
So no more having the "nice" train (with comfy clean seats, wifi and airco) but the "crap" train (old dirty seats, no wifi and no airco) AND a quarter of an hour wait...
I rly need a drivers license...
Needing to approve each and any brainfart open-source library. Having to manipulate transitive package dependencies to throw out dependencies with non-compliant license.
I am doing an internship under a professor and he wants me to build a system which manages login/signup and licensing (of the products) system and license check. And for that he wants me to create REST API! I am just starting with backend development so I don't know much but from what i know it seems bad idea to implement this via rest api.
So can you guys tell me if rest api way is good or not? And if not how to implement these functionalities?6
So what's with the whole Elastic open source licenses thing. Seems like a spat btwn then and Amazon?
Amazon now argues that doing this means Elasticsearch and Kibana will no longer be open sourced and that the Elastic License limits how the code can be used while the Server Side Public License makes it unacceptable to the open-source community.23
That feeling when sales tax from buying a new computer goes towards that Sublime Text license you've been putting off...
Release "Unlicensed" to avoid problems
I have done some work as intern I have done some work. I didn't have a contract though and one month ago I wanted to go away to give more time to my studies.
Now they ask me to write a brief documentation to explain how to use what I have done.
Since I have no hope to receive money and I just want to make sure they don't come back asking me things or blaming me about the implementation I thought to release with "The Unlicense" license...
What do you think?3
Hi i dont do open source projects often .
But i want to publish some as open source .
I dont know much about the licensing i only know about gpl3
I dont know if any license offers this thing i need or not .
I need one that allows others to compile and publish their own with ofcourse the given credits
But they cant sell the app . I want keep it free for ever
I saw some big projects that people compiled and sold and that really hurts and the project developer got unmotivated and discontinued the project :(6
"Dear client, due to aspects of licensing and billing in this case it is best if you license this image directly. Please let me know if that is fine with you and get in touch with the image agency to receive your license."
"Dear client, the image agency is waiting for your feedback in order to proceed with billing."
"I thought this had been taken care of already?!"
No it has not, since we have been waiting for your action and you had not yet responded to this mail."
Stupid licensing issue.
I have a licensing question/problem.
I'm porting Lemonbar (the fancy GNU/Linux X11 statusbar) to D (which is awesome imo).
I'm adding Wayland functionality and since D is part of the C syntax family some code is just about exactly the same (the XCB libs are protocol-generated external imports).
Also, the X-specific parts are in a specific file.
What do I license the project against? My own license (I prefer Apache) or Lemonbar's? What about the X-specific file?
BTW, it's a full rewrite using the same concepts, object-orienting the whole thing.2
Rant! When you live in a less technically advanced country, and everyone cheaps out on their software and hires the company that will do it for the least money and because of that it never works decently you can't reserve movie tickets on the cinema's site and get a SQL constraint error directly on screen, if you can't afford custom software buy a license for something that works out of the box ffs
(I'm goin' to see Star wars ofc.)2
Looking for feedback on Elastic's SSPL license type change. Is anybody else worried? Any other companies seek legal counsel already? What have your lawyers said about it?5
Spring cleaning my laptop. Moved my music etc to external hdd. Somehow I deleted all music. Ease of USE data recovery charging $65 for license. No previous version to restore. When I scan with Ease I can see my files. Someone help?24

Read them, they're especially interesting when put into the context of the current GitHub affairs.
The team using the tool that I was managing just stopped using it and when asked my boss what should I do he just gave me a specification document and told me that I had two months and a visual studio license.
Before that I had only used fortran on my graduation.
Reading Geekonomics (silly title for the book) and seriously considering that maybe we should all be licensed/certified since so much software is broken, looking at you Equifax.1
I was considering creation of client-server app to learn some new language and wanted it to have the best possible performance.
The client part is not an issue, it can be whatever, really... the server choice is pain in the ass...
I have looked up web server framework benchmark here: https://techempower.com/benchmarks/
So comparing those I have 2 options:
- Actix (Rust)
- Vert.x (Java)
I was about to use Vert.x, it handles requests asynchronously which seems nice.
However I thought, what if I wanted to sell this shit someday and Java requires licenses, while Rust don't.
I am terrible if it comes to licenses, so...
How does Java licensing work?
It is on client to pay it cause he is using it or on me as a product owner?
Or should I switch to Rust already?5
I installed MS visual studio on my company's machine a year back and never really used it. In discussion with a colleague, he said that I shouldn't have the software because our company doesn't have license for it. I wonder why Microsoft would let me download it in the first place.6
was thinking of learning vim.
searched for vim adventure on Google.
worked on a few levels (must say great game to learn vim seriously) then it asked to purchase a license for 25$.
which I don't have to spend now.
well have to stick to the conventional way.
So I miss my job to go to the local traffic department to check my driver license and their system is out. (boss will fuck me)
Then I see they have 5 brand new Windows powered HP machines you can use to check your processes and stuff. The Internet is blocked, but strangely no one bothered that user has administrative rights.
Cmd and Explorer in the screen are in admin mode2

Could my car get its own driving license so I get a self driving car?
It fulfills the age requirement to apply for a driving license, built -97.
Pixabay’s API is great because it offers free (license) stock photos and their keyword search is fairly well.
My goals this year:
1. Getting certified for Spring core
2. Getting certified for Java OCP 8
3. Write my first blog about “something interesting”
4. Update my personal website
5. Getting a drivers license
So if someone has some ideas/tips that would be great.1
I am in final year in computer science and i have to do a license. I know for sure it will be something about networking( not programming)(I am junior sysadmin in a company, i told you that so you can make an idea about the field). I did not find any great idea until now. Can you help me with some ideas? Thank you.
Did anyone of testers know if there is any free online test case management tool available for small development project? since I was trying to use JIRA, but the license is not free. So any advises? Thank you.2
Need an opinion if this is gunna work or not
I have a machine that currently has windows 10 de-activated and I want to activate it with a win 7 license, except, I don't want to lose the state of the machine.
Here's what I plan to do:
Clone the machine to an external drive, wipe and reinstall windows 10 and activate with windows 7 license. Get it to the point where it's on the desktop. Then clone it back to the state it was before.
The thought behind this is that the activation is tied to the mobo so the data/install of the actual windows doesn't matter.
I know this isn't exactly a dev question, but I figured its still kind of in the same area so it would be ok.
Thanks to all that reply ❤️15
Setting up new version of provided software with docker. Which is new to me - heard about it but never used it before. Took me a hour.
Waiting for license key: more than 1.5h now.3
Do you people think that you can use a self-hosted wikimedia installation in order to help users to correctly use your app(also a content management system)?
in a commercial project🤔🙄1
Microsoft server licensing - so complex that it's probably easier to add Postgres support to my app and run the database server on Linux instead, than to try to make sense of MS license rules.
I went to create an attributions page for my node.js app I am working on. I just had it parse the packages used. Ran out of memory trying to display them in a browser.
Man I included 1 (uno) package and the dependencies are crazy. First thing I did was install license-checker to make sure I wasn't shooting myself in the foot with some random GPL/LGPL package.
So, I guess I am learning about node.js a bit this week.
Anyone here who has experiences with Kaspersky running on MacOS Sierra? Got a license here but I'm scared to install it because I heard it would slow down the system due to the deep integration and so forth.4
Think about how much time you spent in your live by just clicking away the Winrar license popup. Was it worth it?2
Just in case people weren’t aware you can get all syncfusions controls and reporting/data stuff for free under the same terms as the VS community license (ie you can sell anything you make) here https://syncfusion.com/products/...
Hello guys, I've posted a question here: https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/...
It's a question regarding taking ownership of a project with a apache 2 license. I've pretty much created the back-end part of this back end as a service. Some other colleagues created the Java, ios and js clients, so it's not entirely made by me.
More details in the question itself.
