My new book
I think I shall post the chapters up here for people's amusement as I complete them if that's OK with the mods. Here's the first chapter; I've had to disguise it as a .zip file but it's actually .odt (well that is a zip file, isn't it?).
I download the zip file - I can see is this :
Configurations2 layout-cache META-INF mimetype styles.xml
content.xml manifest.rdf meta.xml settings.xml Thumbnails
As I understand it, open source is not free of intellectual property rights. The individual or organisation that created the software retains the copyright to it. It is released under a permissive licence which allows the user total freedom. Some such as the GPL require that modifications, fixes and improvements are made freely available in the form of the source. The BSD licence is even more liberal and can be summed up as "Here you go!"
I don't know how significant that is in the context.

I like your style as always.
I was going to make a writing suggestion. But then. The fault was with a corrupted download and not your writing style. My isp strikes again.I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.
Accepting Death is the only way to stay alive.
Another winner Hazel. Why weren't my college text books written this well?Registered Linux user #526930
