    Santa needs to learn some basic gun safety.

    I’m not trying to game anything; it’s merely an idle musing, largely irrelevant in this day of online installations. I don’t think you understood my question, though.

    In ProCD v Zeidenberg, the court ruled that the EULA was enforceable because Zeidenberg had to click a button agreeing to the EULA in order to install the software. In actual fact, the installation executable was an archive that could have easily been opened and modified using other software without any need to run the install program. It would have been fairly trivial for Zeidenberg to modify the install executable to remove the file that contained the EULA. He could have then installed the software without ever being presented with any EULA. Since the only prohibition against modifying the executable was in the EULA that he would not have been presented with in this scenario, what contract would he have violated?

    I’ve often wondered if there would be anything legally preventing you from modifying a software license agreement before you install the software. Obviously, the agreements include language that bars you from modifying anything, but if you changed it before you agreed to it, what have you violated?

    Tolkien was merely returning to an older concept of elf. The Ljosalfar bore no resemblance to silly Victorian flower fairies.

    I think a Coup de Ville would be overthrowing the mayor by force.

    You can save $100 (off MSRP) on Vortex Diamondback 10×42s at Cabela’s, but you need to go NOW NOW NOW!

    It was five separate underdeveloped stories related only because the author said they were. I could say Lazarillo de Tormes, Pudd’nhead Wilson, Bertie Wooster, Ivan Denisovich, and Buck Rogers are all reincarnations of the same man; I could add that they were all inspired by the lives of their predecessors, but it wouldn’t make their stories truly connected.
