Re: The lame superpowers thread.

My true to life lame superpower is the ability to set eating utensils on the edge of a plate in such a way that they fall to the floor after a delay from the last time I touched them or the plate.

Re: A question about copyright on youtube

While as the Wired opinion piece, and the guide I linked, both talk about the frustrating gray area where a song will get deleted with a strike without any way of being able to be sure whether it is or isn't covered by the synchronization license, it's not something I've worried about with all the l...

Re: A question about copyright on youtube

Here's my problem: You keep referring to a contract you say exists. If such a contract existed this would be great, as it would seem to be made exactly for problems like ours. Unfortunately I don't think this contract says what you think it does if it exists at all. After googling "google indi...

Re: A question about copyright on youtube

In the vast majority of cases with popular music covers your school may post, you'll be covered by YouTube's agreement with the artist/label, and being "flagged" simply means they'll put ads and pass along the revenue, but does not count as a copyright violation because you're essentially...

Re: A question about copyright on youtube

I know that, but that sounds more like how it is for the usage if material straight from the artist and not covers where in the students play and sing and nothing prerecorded is used from the original artist. Both are covered under their contracts now. The original recording via the labels, and the...

Re: A question about copyright on youtube

Fair use has (essentially) nothing to do with whether copyrighted music is allowed on YouTube or not. The ONLY thing that matters to them is whether the original owner (or an agent for the owner such as a record label or Content Management Network) has a deal with them to flag the content and pass a...

Live Online Game Development from My Brother

He's worked with Capcom, and now works at another major developer in Tokyo, and has worn many different hats in the development of several AAA titles, but this is his first attemp...

Re: Kerbal Space Program

Normally, I try to build practical ships, and even if they get a bit out of hand with complications and explosiveness from time to time, I don't do over-the-top like I've seen in so many videos. However, I got this idea. An orange tank, with 6 of the standard radial engines, that have a combined 720...

Re: What happens when you break a cat's legs?

Outside of the US, there's a candy called Smarties which is basically the same idea as M&Ms (though most people have a strong preference one way or the other). They're sold in cardboard tubes in the UK, apparently, though here they usually come in boxes. As an aside, the candy Americans call Sm...

I started a regular let's play video series in KSP. The goal is to eventually put an asteroid in orbit around each of the planets and moons to use as an attachment point for bases. But I think the main draw is that I'm speeding up the footage to 150%, including my voice, which may be either very amu...

Re: Me and my friends are starting our own LPs. Any advice?

Another thing to keep in mind is that very few people are good at speaking for an audience off the top of their head when they start out. If you look at a lot of the popular LPers' early videos, they're usually awkward as hell. So don't get down on yourself if you don't have their current kind of fl...
