I've decided on removing every scrap of code from my archive that is connected to this jerkoff.

I think the author of VMS MONSTER should talk to this guy, as I believe it had "online creation" that predates his by about… 10 years?

Oh, joy, is it that time of the year already? Locke is back?

I hate to burst the guy's bubble but on the original MUD I started on we had the half finished code for an OLC that had been there since the place originally opened. And it easily predates any claim he could possibly make on the concept of OLC at all because the place had originally opened in 1992 and he's laying claim to everything from 1993 onward.

Retroactive licensing won't stick. So I really don't see how he expects to enforce his fantasy on anyone other than those who don't know any better.

And I don't think we have any of his crud here anyway because every time he tried to upload it it was lacking all of the proper Diku/Merc credits. But if we do/did, his attitude warrants throwing it all out right now.

I would like to point out to all mud administrators that if their mud uses any sort of text that I need to be credited during the login sequence. Everyone know's that I created the first word, and all others are clearly modified versions of mine.

ROFL!

No kidding!

Hey, since Al Gore invented the Internet, does that mean we should all give him credit too?

You're removing all forms of OLC and codebases that contain them? lol.

Gods was the first to have online creation, back in 1985.

I'm just curious, because Herb actually is saying he first used 'medit', 'redit' etcetera in that post, not that he had the first OLC (just in the linked TMC thread mind, I'm aware that Herb is a class A jerk). So…not to troll, but did Herb first use the terms medit and redit and so on?

I'm pretty sure he's also suggesting that all of the code bases he lists is using code derived from his 'open source' mud of old. And that now he wants to change the license conditions that governed derivation (if they actually were.)

# Randomly selects a quote that the brain knows. If Locke

end

# Accepts a string, \n delimited quotes, then passes them
# into the brain as array elements. Quote's should express
# all of the different ways in which he owns OLC.
def load_brain(data)
data.each do |idea|
@brain << idea
end
end

end

# A few quotes.
quotes = "I own OLC.
OLC make's me hot.
I created OLC.
Credit me for your OLC.
Include my name in your OLC.
E-mail me if you use my OLC.
Don't forget that I made your OLC.
I still remember the day I first touched OLC.
OLC is the highlight of my life.
I will always love OLC.
You remind me of OLC.
I named my pet dog OLC."


# Usage example.
locke = Locke.new
locke.load_brain(quotes)
locke.speak
locke.speak
locke.speak
locke.think_about('man-boy love')
locke.speak
locke.speak
locke.speak

#output from above
- I still remember the day I first touched OLC.
- I will always love OLC.
- OLC is the highlight of my life.

irb(main):058:0> locke.think_about('man-boy love')
- I created man-boy love.
- I will always love man-boy love.
- man-boy love make's me hot.


Try it out, make your own quotes and comments! =)

I was going to say something rational and reasonable…..

then I remembered this is about Locke, so that would be OT, wouldn't it?

Yes, that would be OT, and many butterflies would be killed if you were to stray from the topic. You wouldn't want to be known as a butterfly killer, right?

Chris, you haven't credited Locke in your code. His lawyers will be with you shortly to settle on adequate compensation for this grievous error on your part.

Excessive flaming to the point we just couldn't handle him. Not the kind of personality we want trolling the site.
