Emulation is not about piracy, for example check out the Internet Archive, a large archive of pirated products. r n r nHmm.... r n r nI feel like using the IA as an example of historical preservation done right is probably a mistake given how often they get caught with ...

Gerry: r n r nRead more John Dickson Carr and less Agatha Christie. r n r nEdit: That sounds a little snarky. To elaborate, Christie and authors like her write stories that the reader is not supposed to be able to solve, whereas Carr 's whole shtick was that the ...
