The GPL is a pain in the ass. seriously. It seems that lullacons are the only GPL game in town. I went to check out the Microformats Icons, since i figured that an open standard would have to be devoid of attribution, and owned by a governing body. looks like microformats aren’t that globally minded yet.
they do have cool icons, though:
but they can’t be distributed with wordpress themes. It’s not that i don’t want to attribute the author. it’s the the FSF doesn’t want that to be a requirement upon users of the software. which is why most linux software uses the standard KDE or GNOME icons: it’s too difficult to find their own, or make an entirely new set.
with a little bit of
printf() magic (that i’m especially proud of learning), that input produces this footer:
- google makes too much money for me to do their work for them.
