Your free software website, for dummies

There is a certain art to buidling a website for your open source project.Before you create your own, make sure you know and follow the rules. You’ll thank me later.

It’s simple, really. It’s all about the first impression.

In particular, your site’s first page must communicate the following points:


  • It must mention the fact that your software is open source or free, or whatever bastardly combination of the two, even before explaining what your software does. Extra points if you mention exactly which license you use, and if you help educate the masses about how speech and beer are in fact, different worldly entities. Studies show that if your users do not understand exactly whether binary linking is allowed with your software, they will not use it.
  • If the name of your software is an acronym, you must explain what the acronym stands for, with even more confusing terms.
  • You must note which programming language your software is coded in, because that’s the first thing that any potential user will care about.
  • You must note how your program is modularized, and anyone can add modules and customize it to actually do what it was supposed to just do in the first place.
  • You must mention that your software is localized. Because, crappy software is somehow better when it speaks your language.
  • You must immediately jump into a “recent announcements” section, which has items that only the 3 developers on your project would possibly understand or derive any value from. Extra points if you have an embedded commit log.
  • You must mention that your software runs on at least 5 irrelevant platforms.
  • A personal favor, please note whether your application is multithreaded. I only download multithreaded software.
  • Refer to your application as a framework. Since all good great applications are framework. Firefox is a browsing framework. Gimp is a image processing framework. iTunes is a music listening framework. See?
  • Don’t ever call it an installer. Call it a binary distribution. Better yet, make sure the only way to install is through github. Make sure your github page offers no clues on what to do once you’re there.

There. Now you’re equipped to go create a site can compete with the best of ‘em. You’re welcome.

Valve are making graphics drivers better on Linux, not only that but their Linux version of Left for Dead absolutely PWNS Mickeysoft Winblows in frames per second:

After this work, Left 4 Dead 2 is running at 315 FPS on Linux. That the Linux version runs faster than the Windows version (270.6) seems a little counter-intuitive, given the greater amount of time we have spent on the Windows version. However, it does speak to the underlying efficiency of the kernel and OpenGL.

Linux will soon take over the gaming world and you fucktards will all be wondering what the hell happened.

And in their conclusion they state it has nothing to do with Linux for why it runs faster:

This experience lead to the question: why does an OpenGL version of our game run faster than Direct3D on Windows 7? It appears that it’s not related to multitasking overhead. We have been doing some fairly close analysis and it comes down to a few additional microseconds overhead per batch in Direct3D which does not affect OpenGL on Windows. Now that we know the hardware is capable of more performance, we will go back and figure out how to mitigate this effect under Direct3D.


It's an OpenGL vs D3D thing, but the freetards will make sure to leave that part out and just claim it's due to Linux.

You'll be able to do that in La Vida since you have full control of the source code. This is why proprietary software is so evil and unethical. If you hacked in that fix into The Sims and tried to distribute your modifications you would be sued.

Let's do some maths here.

1) Let D be the set of all developers in existence.

2) Let D_1 be the subset of developers wanting to spend their spare time working on software.

3) Let D_2 be the subset of developers willing to spend their spend their spare time working for free.

4) Let D_3 be the subset of developers with the ability to bring the project across the finish line.

5) Let D_4 be the subset of developers interested in the project.

Obviously, the suckers this guy is looking for lies within (D_1 ∩ D_2 ∩ D_3 ∩ D_4) ⊆ D. I just ain't sure how big |(D_1 ∩ D_2 ∩ D_3 ∩ D_4)| is, though.

What intrigues me here is all that talk about "trolling style" like everyone knows or cares about what they do over at TMR.

OP here, the few things I know about TMR are what others on here have said:

- TMR is "ironically" written in Django. IMO TMR guy is actually a closet Freetard, which is why he had to come up with a really wooly excuse for using a Freetarded language and framework.

- Every time TMR gets more than two simultaneous visitors it gets DDOS-ed, though I use that term loosely, since "DDOS" generally means foul play rather than just people normally browsing. This is due to TMR being based on a Freetarded framework, using a Freetarded language, storing data in a Freetarded RDBMS, all of which is running on a Freetarded OS with a Freetarded kernel written by a Finnish sandals-and-socks wearing Freetard who likes to wear Speedos.

- TMR guy was going to write a coffee table book of the greatest TMs™® on the site. LOL.

- Oh and wasn't he going to advertise for 'new blood' on the Something Awful forums? That would have been lulzy.

A few of things I learned from the days when TMR guy posted openly on here:

- He probably wrote a jQuery plugin in the time it's taken me to compose this post.

- Jerkface is and awesome guy who cynically destroys all mainstream tech pundits and doesn't afraid of anything. He's definitely not meh, nor does he post about random shit his audience aren't interested in (basball anyone?) with the writing style of a 13 year old.

- TMR guy can tell Anonymouse's apart by their writing style.

I have visited TMR a couple of times, but oh fuck is it boring. Apart from the slow load times, no-one is bringing the funny. It's just Dr Boring arguing with Adam King, then Dr Boring calling everyone he disagrees with "Adam King" while Mongoloid chips in some unfunny snark now and then. SO. FUCKING. T-E-D-I-O-U-S.

Not sure why I ended up writing a really long comment about this stupid shit, probably because I'm avoiding doing paperwork. :/

I am pretty sure "bringing the funny" isn't part of the goal of that site. At least, it's obviously not there in the About page.

Besides, isn't the usual argument here that, if you want something meaningful, you go and start the dicussion yourself? The knife cuts both ways, I think.

It's just Dr Boring arguing with Adam King, then Dr Boring calling everyone he disagrees with "Adam King" while Mongoloid chips in some unfunny snark now and then.

The last time "Mongoloid" posted anything there was in December last year. This seems to be more than just a "meh" you have got there.

I think the more obvious question is, "Why do you even think it's necessary to give that much thought about place full of content that, in your opinion, is 'SO. FUCKING. T-E-D-I-O-U-S'?" This is not to mention that your rant is written at least 7 months after your last visit. Don't you think it's a bit odd - in one way or another - that you are unwilling to let go of something that trivial?

The whole site is based on a joke meme started on here. It's a novelty concept, the entire thing is meant to be a joke, it doesn't need to be explicitly stated in the About page since it's intrinsic in the site's concept.

I find this level of officious pedantry very suspicious, it reminds me of JoeMonco/Flying Toaster.

Besides, isn't the usual argument here that, if you want something meaningful, you go and start the dicussion yourself? The knife cuts both ways, I think.

Maybe I'll go and post on TMR, just make it work at least as well as LHB comments (not hard) with anonymous commenting and on a faster server first.

I think the more obvious question is, "Why do you even think it's necessary to give that much thought about place full of content that, in your opinion, is 'SO. FUCKING. T-E-D-I-O-U-S'?"

Because it's part of the history of LHB, the falling out of TMR guy with several anonymous's and the whole Jerkface "Meh" incident was legendary.

Also, I didn't go into much thought, I just started typing and kept remembering more stuff. What can I say? I've been here a while and really like the place, come on Mongoloid/Flying Toaster let an old hand reminisce once in a while. Miserable defensive cunt.

Interesting, but that's only yields more questions than answers. Jokes get old and people move on from them rather quickly. That's one thing I don't see in you.

That's not pedantry. It's just a set of questions any casual observer would raise.

I think the usually solution here is to set up a communal account a la "Anonymous Coward" in /. I don't know what advantage it's supposed to offer but there's that.

Because it's part of the history of LHB

Again, interesting, but not something that everyone needs to know in order to understand the purpose of that site.

the falling out of TMR guy with several anonymous's

Again, I can argue that there was only one person arguing with TMR for 16 hours straight. It's only fair to impose the same assumptions on both sides.

I just started typing and kept remembering more stuff.

Perhaps you don't get the drift.

What I am point out is that the thing you are doing here is called "obsessing", not "reminiscing". Even though you repeated claim you are just casually recounting things from the past (that is, after I have pointed out how much time have passed since the events took place), nothing in your tone even remotely suggests that. At least, I don't find in myself the tenacity to bring up the same old subject every other page here with the same level of cynicism and frustrations - not even for something Linux-related.

Agreed. Especially:

if you want something meaningful, you go and start the dicussion yourself?

And

The last time "Mongoloid" posted anything there was in December last year.

Someone who knows how to find that kind of information on TMR. And clearly knows what TMR is and the website address.

"Casual observer"? LOL.

Anyone who remembers TMR, knows where to find his site, how it works etc, and posts on a dead blog like LHB to begin with, is not a casual observer.

Clearly you have some skin in the game, and want to defend TMR. That's fine.

I think the real "obsessing" is being done by the dude you has to reply pedantically to a "Remember TMR" post.

What's with this "dead blog" argument? I would have even agreed with you had you made this same remark two month earlier. The very post you are "commenting" on is only one week, in case you have a memory issue.

Sometimes I wonder if people are trolling or just stupid.

Funny how when someone posts something mocking Pogson or SVJN or even Jerkface the peanut gallery goes along.

But mention TMR then White knight to the rescue!

Interesting argument.

SJVN is an IT pundit that proclaims the imminent death of Windows/MS for a living (and has been doing so for more than 10 years). Pogson is an eccentric, self-fashioned Linux "expert" with little knowledge in the craft.

Wake me up when TMR does the same.

At least I'd have no trouble attacking any of those I have replied to in the previous few posts. That's how much I can assure you.

Knock it off, TMR.

Haven't you got an Adam King troll to rebuff and write (TM) essays about?

Or has even Adam abandoned you?

I'd post the details of my bmsuppository account on TMR for people to troll with but I'm sure if I did some TurdRepository defender will change the login details to block access to it.

"Latest Debian on an Ancient Laptop"

Too easy. A floppy and network install of Linux? Any Linux veteran has done that...! Ubuntards are spoiled - back in the day we did it properly with boot/root floppies and "dd if=/zImage of=/dev/fd0".

Installing a newer version of Windows would have been a more interesting challenge, especially without a CDROM.

Looks like TMR is lurking. Guess those Something Aweful ads didn't bring in the new blood he hoped..

Anonymous said...

I don't get why they are saying that it's great for the environment. The thing is still going into landfill, it's not like he switched to it full time.

Except it will be running linux in the landfill instead of windows 95..

Oh and wasn't he going to advertise for 'new blood' on the Something Awful forums?

I do remember this. Many lulz.

He reminds me of those right-wing church preachers that insist that they will double their congregation size within 6 months only to find the same retards.

Well, assuming that TMR actually managed at all to sit in front of a computer and refresh the same page over and over for 16 hours straight

Don't understand where assumption comes in. I was one of the people arguing with TMR. I had already spent more time on LHB than I intended and stopped posting cold and went to bed. When I woke up there were hundreds of posts several minutes apart. I think I had to click "newer" twice to get to the most recent comments. If he wasn't jamming the refresh button every 30 seconds it was pretty close. In any case, it is impossible to "work" when you're obsessing over posting on a blog all night long.

So I picked up TMR at a gay bar last night and brought him home to my house. Just as I was aboutmto lay into his asshoe with my man missile I realized his asshole looked like a loose-meat sandwich.
