Reddit user saying DRAM calc using pirated version of HCI.
Now, I'm not doing this to "rally the troops" as it were, but I'm a big enough man to say when I'm wrong, and will say sorry to him if proven, but he's officially dead against DRAM Calc both in functionally and it's inclusion of "pirated software", so I wanted your thoughts as well?
You can see my reply, defending 1usmus, below his.
Again, I'm not leading anyone, I want your genuine opinions - if you agree with me, that's fine, if you don't, that's fine too.
Read the discussion although people are acting strange
The terminology of piracy is not bypassing rules ~ that's modding
Piracy counts in finding ways to reverse engineer the tool and selling
these methods or profitating around them
On top of that like it was written, piracy would be if Yuri found a way to continue with this method with a new version of HCI
That would be then against the developers ruleset
But you can't apply a new TOS to an old aoftware, and you can't stop distributing the old software
Also to include that the developer knew about the existence of DRAM calculator by the time he updated their TOS
Soo if he is credited, it was under both sided agreement, nothing a TOS or EULA influences on
It would be abusage of trust, if the calculator turned into donationware purely or shareware
Which it isn't, soon piracy doesn't even close apply here
Awkwardly such assumption comes from people who don't know where these timings come from, and likely have no idea about the tool itself
Ignoring that all these settings where compared and tested, including trowing away his research on that matter ~ is just foolish
As if calculators only purpose are timings which have been tested strictly ^^'
Funny thread, but the linked comment is a dead end
