Just out of curiousity what type of license do you have for GAGE?  I'm writing something and I'd like to use the GAGE Timer and I'm willing to give credit and all.

Just answered the same question this morning:

License? What's that? Is there supposed to be a license for this stuff? Hmm... How about this: do whatever you want with it, just don't blame me if it breaks and at least try to make some modifications to it if you're going to claim it as your own. How's that? Wink

Oh, and please (pretty please?) drop me a line if you do something with GAGE. I'm really interested in what people do with it.

Dude, that's a really great idea! Do you know of any professional printers that would do a good job of this? Maybe I could even get the FreeBSD source done while I'm at it! Nothing like learning some code while you're using the head.  Grin

Lucky you. My wife would run away screaming if I ever tried anything like that.  Wink

The scary thing is, if you mention that idea to any one of the geek sites around that sell noveltys for developers, they MAY just take you seriously.

For example: caffeineated soap.

This one scares me.

You local S&M shop will sell handcuffs, or your local hardware shop will sell ducktap, but if you are in a romatic mode you can use some silk.
She will still scream, but hey, you can't have everything.

Here's a scary thought for you. I wasn't entirely joking. I think something like sourcecode on TP would be a *great* novelty item. My wife would roll her eyes at me, but it would still be pretty neat. Smiley

Mlk, you're starting to scare me...  :-/ Tongue

You'd have to be sure and use some fairly robust printing method.

Given the mess that fresh newsprint can make of your hands, printed toilet paper may well make more mess than than no paper at all.  Smiley

That's why I jokingly mentioned a professional printer. Using a standard bubble jet would make a hugh mess. A laser printer would do a better job as long as it isn't one of those that "leaks" extra toner all over the paper. Of course, trying to feed a roll thorugh a laser would be a task in of itself. You're much better off getting a manufacturer or printer to do the job. They have the equipment to actually dye/stain the TP. This would make the job permanent and smear free.

Now THERE'S a license opportunity for you, jbanes!  License it to the toilet paper manufacturer.  Grin

If you have a laser printer, you could always try to get a roll of that industrial strength TP. (You know, the stuff that you find in public bathrooms that's feels like wax paper without the wax.) You should get a nice printout on those. You might still have a few feed problems, but they could be worked around. Smiley

Where's the Kaboom?

A school mate of mine actually did print an assignment on a roll of toilet paper and handed it in that way. This was way back in the early 80's... he had a fancy printer at the time that used some sort of single pixel printhead that burnt carbon onto the paper with an electical charge..  you could see it sparking as it zipped across the page.

I'm not sure if he got a good mark on that assignment...

I think this is a record for being the farthest off-topic a thread can get.

Good lord I've created a monster!  And yeah, wow, going from a licensing question to printing source code on toilet paper is about as far of the mark as I can conceive.

jbanes, I'm doing (get ready to roll your eyes) Yet Another MMORPG.  I have the 2D and Sound already written so I just need the timer.  I'll drop you a line if I ever get my lazy butt in to gear and finish what I've started.

P.S.  Use two-ply.

P.P.S.  What in the heck do you use caffienated soap for?  I mean aside for washing.  Do you eat it?  I mean, egad man, What's the point!

Darkwing,

Human skin has pores.  It breathes.  It perspires.  But skin can also INGEST, which is the point of caffeinated soap.  You take in caffeine with your shower and your skin is what ingests it.

I should tell you I didn't believe this either, until I actually used it.  A word to the wise: don't shower AND THEN have a cup of coffee.  That is just asking for trouble. Smiley
