six and a half years I have been coming here, I seem to remember lurking first. Don't know what I would do without this place and people here. The previous post was so I could look below my and find out how long I have been here. I would not have Putin come over to my house for dinner; he is just too grim.

Well that just goes to show how much attention I pay! Something becomes familiar you don't even notice it anymore!

Eleven years for me. That doesn't count the time I posted to the old yellow-and-black bulletin board. I think the Pav started in 2002, so I started in the old board in 1999 or 2000.

Time well spent. :lol:

Ez -- These are amusing, but we're not running afoul of copyright are we?

Just want to make sure.

Mr Moderator I'm glad you asked me that question! It allows me a certain measure of redress.

This cartoon is from the site

http://www.xkcd.com/

and is the work of Randall Munroe. As the Good Book says, A workman is worthy of his hire (no really, Luke 10:7) and credit where credit is due!

As far as permissions go -

http://www.xkcd.com/license.html

This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License.

This means that you are free to copy and reuse any of my drawings (noncommercially) as long as you tell people where they're from.

That is, you don't need my permission to post these pictures on your website (and hotlinking with <img> is fine); just include a link back to this page. Or you can make Livejournal icons from them, but -- if possible -- put xkcd.com in the comment field. You can use them freely (with some kind of link) in not-for-profit publications, and I'm also okay with people reprinting occasional comics (with clear attribution) in publications like books, blogs, newsletters, and presentations. If you're not sure whether your use is noncommercial, feel free to email me and ask (if you're not sure, it's probably okay).

But you're supposed to reject the idea of a creative commons. I'd throw a flag on that play my man. :lol:

Frank, even I - known advocate of copyright protection - has work out there under Creative Commons.

Pick your jaw up from the floor. You look silly without it.

Barber did give me the impression he didn't like the concept of the commons.

Frank - I have a bit in response on Creative Commons, but I'm going to stick it in the Copyright discussion to not hijack this thread.

No, I don't like the Commons if the artist has no say in participating. In this case the artist clearly gave permission. No harm, no foul.

It's when you take an artist's work from them without their permission that I become your worst nightmare.

I've been clear since the start that the artist determines the destiny of their work and no one else.
