I swear, I break protection systems just to prove to myself that nobody's made anything difficult to defeat yet, let alone remotely secure.

Tip to artists I won't name: I love the artwork, but if I buy a CD of art, it's probably to use some of it for things like wallpaper, or to make a collage of the images for a wallpaper if nothing else since I use a wildly non-standard screen resolution (1280x768) thanks to having a widescreen laptop. It's not to load your custom application and stare at the pretty images until I press any friggin' key at all and have the app go away. Stop trying to treat me like a criminal, if you're that paranoid, only sell prints and use scan-resistant paper as that is currently the only way to prevent someone from copying or modifying your artwork. And at least then I don't expect to be able to do something like use the artwork for the desktop of my computer like I do if I buy an artwork CD.

And so far I've yet to find anything that requires more than ten minutes to pull all the images from using automated tools that just search for standard image-format headers, occasionally with the occasional single byte errors I need to manually correct.1 commentLeave a comment
