The idea for this came from dan @ continuum. In fact this whole section was
unceremoniously stolen gratefully borrowed from him. The idea I think is that despite all the hype, excitement and 'yay fight the power' about this stuff - the vast majority of people out there are apathetic; and when presented with a 'click this to make this thing go away' will click it with barely a second thought; much less read through reams of legalese and EULAs.
So if you have actually got through all this, and found it then props to you; give yourself a pat on the back! First person to notify us wins a coffee and sticky bun on us.
Hall of fame:
The information on this site is for general information purposes only and does not claim to be comprehensive or provide legal or other advice. cortex accepts no responsibility for loss that may arise from accessing or reliance on information contained in this site. cortex is not responsible for the content of external internet sites that link to this site or are linked from it.
The contents of this site are arbitrarily protected by copyright under international conventions; so strictly speaking you shouldn't borrow anything without asking first. But there's not much point trying to stop anyone from using it for their purposes - and, moreover, why would we want to try? So on that basis - go nuts and copy the hell out of the site. But, if you did find something useful, helpful or just a bit darn nifty, then a link, a nod or re-Tweet is much appreciated.
