Re: 2068: "Election Night"

Goodness blades, such needless sarcasm. Yes indeed, paywalls suck, but I'm guessing it's a low one, just to cover hosting and maintenance. If it is indeed public domain, anyone feeling sufficiently charitable could hack up the dosh, and mirror the content free on their own hosting. It's 8 USD/month...

But you can get the Iliad for free on the Gutenberg project.

And it's ridiculous that one of the proponents for longer and longer copyright periods is Disney, whose iconic princess movies are mostly based on public domain stories and legends.

I'm not such a fan of Scratch: it's too free-form for me. I prefer something like Tynker where I have clear objectives that get progressively more complex.
