>> No, I don't help other people play games or cheat in math.

Or cheat in chemistry. I've long decided that it isn't worth the effort to distribute programs on a calc to calc basis. Also I don't feel like giving lecture in expression trees and how they relate to using an equation writer.

Having read all the posts here I'm going to update the legal sections of my readmes.

I find that it is very easy to just disclaim responsibility for anything that happens. Once you do that, what can somebody else do? What needs to be updated?

I think he might have meant a section which forbids distributing the program for money.

But then he would involve himself with it. It's so much easier to just say 'I discaim responsibility for anything that happens to anything which may or may not be in connection with this program.'

No one's ever offered me money to put games on their calculator... I am usually the one to force them to have games. (So I can play Tankers with them and whatnot)...

People often offer me money to help them with their computer problems/setting up wireless networks in their homes, but I always decline the money.

Sometimes I charge money, just to see a humerous reaction. Then I say I was kidding around, and give them the game for free.

But now that I develop for Palm OS, it is an acceptable practice to create shareware! w00t! (even though I have yet to do so).

I act like I'm gonna charge, too. If they are willing, I take their money, but if they ain't, I just say I was kidding. It's so funny watching their faces... :-D

Yes, that is right, I do charge a standard fee. It is a Buck-fifdy. And people pay, too. It is awesome.

I have considered charging for my programs, but most of my math programs are already spread out throughout the school that it would be pointless. Besides, I kinda would feel bad charging money for it. I think I got a quarter once, but I gave it back. The appreciation and recognition is pretty good for me anyway. Two math teachers at my school have most of my math programs and give them out to all their students. It's a nice feeling when you look at the programs on a random calc and 3 out of 7 of them are yours.

Same here. I would rather know that my programs were widely used/liked than get a few bucks (although, on the other hand, I might make enough to buy a couple CDs...).

Finding things that people need in programs and then delivering is much easier and more lucrative.

You misspelled "calculators" as "heavy metal CDs".

No, I meant REAL metal, not so-called nu-metal: Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Skid Row, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, etc. Slipknot's still ok.

To be simple, "lucre" == money.

not unless you have previously stated:
String money = "lucre";
Actually...even THAT wouldn't make it equal...you'd have to do the test as:
money.equ("lucre");

I thought it was .equals() ? Hehe, I think there's some function that lets you use == for strings, but it's pointless.

stringvar.intern() == stringvar2.intern()

or something like that... I dunno, Java is weird

I don't need no steenkin' == for strings. I use Z80 ASM:

ld hl,string1
ld de,string2
call strcmp

And I LIKE it! (durn whippersnappers <grumble> <grumble>)

Oh yeah! I made some programs to help me out in algebra, two years ago, and I gave it to my teacher. He distrubuted it to people in his classes, and the programs still circulate. Freshmen are always telling me that they like and use my programs. It's fun. :)
