Free software, free society. What is Free Software? “Free software” is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech”, not as in “free beer”. Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. More precisely, it refers to four kinds of freedom, for the users of the software: The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0). The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this. The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2). The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to the source code is a precondition for this. To understand the philosophy of Free software, see homepage in my profile.

He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster.
-- Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil

Thus the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet.
-- Dave Barry

There is a violence that liberates, and a violence that enslaves; there is a violence that is moral and a violence that is immoral.
-- Benito Mussolini
Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
-- Salvor Hardin

All violence is the result of people tricking themselves into believing that their pain derives from other people and that consequently those people deserve to be punished.
-- Marshall Rosenberg

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral; returning violence with violence only multiplies voilence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
-- Martin Luther King Jr

There have been periods of history in which episodes of terrible violence occurred but for which the word violence was never used.... Violence is shrouded in justifying myths that lend it moral legitimacy, and these myths for the most part kept people from recognizing the violence for what it was. The people who burned witches at the stake never for one moment thought of their act as violence; rather they thought of it as an act of divinely mandated righteousness. The same can be said of most of the violence we humans have ever committed.
-- Gil Bailie

We fear violence less than our own feelings. Personal, private, solitary pain is more terrifying than what anyone else can inflict.
-- Jim Morrison

Violence is not merely killing another. It is violence when we use a sharp word, when we make a gesture to brush away a person, when we obey because there is fear. So violence isn't merely organized butchery in the name of God, in the name of society or country. Violence is much more subtle, much deeper, and we are inquiring into the very depths of violence.
-- Jiddu Krishnamurti

Let us thank God that we live in an age when something has influence besides the bayonet. ~
-- Daniel Webster

It is clear that the way to heal society of its violence... and lack of love is to replace the pyramid of domination with the circle of equality and respect.
-- Manitonquat

Force is all-conquering, but its victories are short-lived.
-- Abraham Lincoln

If you suck on a tit the movie gets an R rating. If you hack the tit off with an axe it will be PG.
-- Jack Nicholson

Man's destructive hand spares nothing that lives; he kills to feed himself, he kills to clothe himself, he kills to adorn himself, he kills to attack, he kills to defend himself, he kills to instruct himself, he kills to amuse himself, he kills for the sake of killing.
-- Josef de Maistre

So long as governments set the example of killing their enemies, private citizens will occasionally kill theirs.
-- Elbert Hubbard

And so, to the end of history, murder shall breed murder, always in the name of right and honor and peace, until the gods are tired of blood and create a race that can understand.
-- George Bernard Shaw, "Caesar and Cleopatra"

Hey! Yep, I have to say I am dissapointed by the Humble Indie Bundle for Androind mobile phones. If it continues like that, I will lose interest in HIB.

For me the games were too "casual". Dont get me wrong, I'm no HC player. But the games were clearly made for a cellphone. I'm not personally interested in that.
