The pile of crap that is docusign will only work for me in incognito mode.

I contacted support and they suggested I tried it and it works, so they closed the case

Apparently, people creating new accounts seem to assume the word (password) in the box in light gray font is a suggestion rather than a label.

That’s hideous. What’s with the purple shadow effect on everything? Just looks like a shitty inkjet printer error

Yes but. Spreadsheets used to be done by hand, yet we still have bookkeepers

Bollocks, any decent game needs a fuck ton of capital to develop

Please share all the greatest communist games

Agree that loot boxes suck, they are gambling, not gaming

Edit. Yes, Tetris. One game made in 1985. Brilliant example Tankards.

So the score so far for games made:

Communism - 1

Capitalism - 831,000

Which was only successful because it got licensed to Western software companies.

What? Are you saying the video game industry predates capitalism? Lol

Anyone can make a movie, but you can’t make a big budget movie without a big budget.

The capital pays for the labour, unless you have people who can work for free.

You know that copyright export was illegal under the Soviets though yeah? So it only got released because a UK software sales guy faxed them a contract and they didn’t realise it was binding

Robert Stein, an international software salesman for the London-based firm Andromeda Software, saw the game’s commercial potential during a visit to Hungary in June 1986.[18]: 302 [25]: 11 min After an indifferent response from the Academy,[25]: 12 min Stein contacted Pajitnov and Brjabrin by fax to obtain the license rights.[25]: 11 min The researchers expressed interest in forming an agreement with Stein via fax, but they were unaware that this fax communication could be considered a legal contract in the Western world;[26] Stein began to approach other companies to produce the game.[17]: 89–90

Stein approached publishers at the 1987 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Gary Carlston, co-founder of Broderbund, retrieved a copy and brought it to California. Despite enthusiasm amongst its employees, Broderbund remained skeptical because of the game’s Soviet origins. Likewise, Mastertronic co-founder Martin Alper declared that “no Soviet product will ever work in the Western world”.[17]: 90

Stein ultimately signed two agreements: he sold the European rights to the publisher Mirrorsoft,[17]: 90 [27] and the American rights to sister company Spectrum HoloByte.[28] The latter obtained the rights after a visit to Mirrorsoft by Spectrum HoloByte president Phil Adam in which he played Tetris for two hours.[17]: 90 [25]: 15 min At that time, Stein had not yet signed a contract with the Soviet Union.[27] Nevertheless, he sold the rights to the two companies for £3,000 and a royalty of 7.5 to 15% on sales

Would be kind of hard to play a game that didn’t get published by the evil capitalist lol

Yeah right. Capital accumulation just comes via bribes instead. Corruption was rife in communist countries

Please explain copyright export licensing under Soviet Union rules

Maybe we should start with what you mean by capital

But moreso where there’s no opportunity to make money

@bernieecclestoned@sh.itjust.works avatar

Sure, I’m always playing Vietnamese and Cuban games. They’re grrrreat!

And Tetris was only successful because of licencing, let’s not create an alternative history here

@bernieecclestoned@sh.itjust.works avatar

The Soviet Union owned all copyright, there was no licensing let alone individual copyright.

Where are you getting floppies from? Where are you getting your computer from?

Yes, it gets mismanaged by central government

Clearly demonstrates that market socialist and hardcore capitalist countries like Denmark, Switzerland and Singapore are the least corrupt.

The floppy, invented by IBM, one of the biggest capitalist companies ever??

How about your hardware? And the fibre that enables us to communicate? And the electricity?

bernieecclestoned ,
@bernieecclestoned@sh.itjust.works avatar

Computers and floppies existed outside of the USSR, as did Tetris.

Ok good. So capital is required for capex and opex.

As you start with 0 sales you need to get capital from investors to fund you until sales >1

Using everything that happened in the 20th century as evidence, no mystery. There’s good governance and bad management. Just one is more effective overall.

Therefore, if you conduct business with EU citizens, you must comply with GDPR."

They weren’t conducting business, as the article says. If they were, the law, in the UK, which hasn’t changed, would apply. But they weren’t.

The judgment, issued by the three-member tribunal at the First-tier Tribunal, agreed with Clearview’s assertion that the ICO lacked jurisdiction in the case because the data processing in question was carried out on behalf of foreign government agencies.

Yeah, I’m going to take the judgement as the truth over your opinion of a fictional ECJ judgement, especially as the UK GDPR law is exactly the same as the EU one.

Please provide a link that shows otherwise

bernieecclestoned ,
@bernieecclestoned@sh.itjust.works avatar

Ok, I think I get where you are coming from, but your conclusion still doesn’t argue the original point imo.

The GDPR law on the UK statute books is the exact same law as the EU one, it has not been amended. It’s just that the ECJ is no longer the highest court. The UK supreme court is again supreme following brexit.

Please provide an example of where the EU has taken action successfully against a conpany that has no base in the EU though. I’ve not seen anything like that bef

The original point was that the UK was somehow in a worse position because of brexit, this is not true. The UK is no weaker legally because of exiting the EU. The law is identical.

Ah ok. Yeah they just did a thing to replicate it recently. Not sure if that means there was a period when that ability was lost though
