yagiska is on a distinguished road
I recently found out that a company, who I had previously entered into commercial negotiations with over the licensing of a multiuser environment engine I had written (and whose name shall remain Unwritten here, except in Legends down the road ::ahem: had stolen the source code from my development computer, and is now attempting to pass off my work as their own.

After sitting down and reviewing my options for revenge, I decided I would maintain a strictly legal approach. My first instinct was to file a lawsuit, but I fear that may be out of the question, as I question what damages I could collect from a company with no money. However, I can not simply stand idly by and watch a company attempt to profit from my stolen hard work, especially when that company was given an opportunity to obtain the rights to use that work legally.

So, I have finally settled upon a solution I feel might sufficiently burn the behinds of those who have wronged me. I am going to do the only thing to do, make the product 100 times better, and give it away for free.

Currently, I am wrapping up the final stages of development on the engine. There remains some testing to do, and much documenting. I have indeed made the product 100 times better, possibly 200 times better. Maybe even 250 times better.

For those of you who may have an interest in developing on a windows engine, look here for more information in the near future, including a URL.

And it bears repeating, when the product is finished, I will grant a non-commercial license to use the product, for free, to anyone who is interested (excluding the previously unmentioned company of course).

In the near future,
