Touch typing Out of curiosity: How many of you know how to touch type? I can't. I can type pretty quickly using 6 fingers or so, but I always look at the keyboard while doing so. I hardly look at the screen at all. I can even see myself making typos without looki...

How should I release my source code under GPL but not my art/music? Please use an OSI certified license. They work, and are pretty well known and well understood. There's no difference between using a random license found in a random project somewhere on the web and writing your own license (both are generally b...

You could have a look at that. Also, ID software has released the source code of many games under a GPL license, without the artw...

.org vs .com for an open source project? Yup, get both. Make one canonical and redirect the other to the canonical one. If it's a pure non-commercial FOSS project I'd make the .org the canonical one and redirect the .com domain. If you plan to offer commercial services alongs...
