I noticed recently that Applefritter is distributing Illegal Instrucition.
Applefritter is happy to announce the availability of Willliam Ahearn’s new Mac mystery novel Illegal Instruction. Illegal Instruction is available in pdf and will be appearing in installments. - Tom Owad
After reading Illegal Instruction, I have to wonder whenther you guys should be happy about this. II is a fantastic piece of writing, I've never seen a "novel" like it that combines Macs into the story so well. It also demontstrates that whoever wrote it had an idea about how Macs work.
Unforunately, the author went overboard on the use of words like "f---" and explicit descriptions. And THIS after people get warnings when posting a mild word like "a--" on AppleFritter.
Isn't this a bit hypocrite-ic?
Also, I'm still waiting for an explanation on why my thread letting people know of a modding contest was deleted and only a message "no advertisements" sent to me. Wait a minute...
An "advertisement" is an attempt to make money. There's no money involved in this, and I'm not getting paid to hawk it around. I was just letting the modding community here know about it. IIRC, Lauren posted back in February about a contest to win a 1.2GHz PowerLogix CPU. It was not locked, deleted, or otherwise mutilated. In fact, Dr.W said it was legit.
I'm warning you guys now. You got a lot of criticism of AF2, I didn't say anything, because I know that it had to be upgraded to dynamic content. But this isn't about the web site, it's about ethics. You might have made a website, but it's the community that make the mods that make it run. Watch how you treat the community. You've got competition now.
(and by the way, I know what I'm talking about. I've been for almost two years - you can't say that I registered here to troll.)
