It also is an incomplete

It also is an incomplete quote. I wonder what I was comparing DRM to... 

When in doubt, follow your heart (and notice that penguins are really cute).

[Sun Apr 16 2006] [17:39:45] <tbuitenh> lawsuits and threats of lawsuits are weapons
[Sun Apr 16 2006] [17:40:38] <tbuitenh> so far, this war is pretty one-sided
[Sun Apr 16 2006] [17:41:24] <libervisco> How do you mean?
[Sun Apr 16 2006] [17:41:36] <tbuitenh> we're not really using any weapons, except for some license lawsuits
[Sun Apr 16 2006] [17:41:47] <tbuitenh> compare DRM to that
[Sun Apr 16 2006] [17:41:51] <tbuitenh> it's a WMD

Heh, I can imagine this

Heh, I can imagine this being made into a fake movie trailer!

AD 2006

War was beginning

When EULAs are fascism,

DRM is a WMD, (IRC conversation scrolling by matrix-style)

and WMD is a DRM (screenshot)

AND ALMOST NOONE FILESYSTEMCHECKING CARES (Steve Ballmer throwing a chair, shouting "All your *bleep*ing base are *bleep*ing belong to us!")

A few heroes try to save the day

(modified uncle Sam "we want you" poster with a gnu head and "we want GNU")

(star wars style title: Software Wars, starring Tux the penguin, Beastie the demon, <all those other mascots> and the boy next door.)

Now playing in attics and basements everywhere.

Oh my. After writing that, I might as well have "geek" tattooed on my forehead Yell.

Haha that's hillarious

Haha that's hillarious enough that someone should make it. Laughing out loud

I'm not sure about the Ballmer throwing a chair scene, but most of the other stuff can be done by simple animation and taking animated screenshots. Smiling

why not make this a whole

why not make this a whole movie Eye

like, ... , the first large-scale movie made without the makers actually meating Eye

 

*goes back to the isolated island between life and death* (anyone logged that quote of me on IRC ?)
