JParanoia software to go open-source 

On the leading PARANOIA fan site, Paranoia-Live.net, shadowy High Programmer NoryB has suddenly returned from a years-long absence in the dark corners of Sector BEE to deliver a striking pronouncement: Before year's end, NoryB intends to open his JParanoia software as open source:
After too many cycles of neglect, I have once again picked up the source for JParanoia and am presently in the process of cleaning it up, tweaking it to make use of contemporary Java features, and will be RELEASING IT UNDER THE GPLv3 OPEN SOURCE LICENSE so that the community can maintain and improve it in perpetuity.

This should happen before the end of this yearcycle (discounting the possibility of commie sabotage).
JParanoia, as all good citizens know, is the free client/server application for playing PARANOIA online. It has lain dormant for a classified length of time, but now the future looks bright. Commendation point, NoryB, and good luck!

No, seriously. If you make non-commercial use of stuff here, that's fine, but we reserve all commercial rights, and all rights to prepare derivative material on things posted here. In addition, posters of comments must be aware that we reserve the right to use whatever material they post here, and/or derivative works therefrom, in PARANOIA, supplementary products, licensed products, or derivative work, without any compensation whatever, for all time to come and throughout this universe and any alternate universes that may be discovered. At our discretion, and without obligation, we may, if it strikes our fancy, make a good faith effort to credit you for stuff we use, but we can't promise it won't slip our minds, in the hurly-burly of meeting deadlines. (Actually, we intend to do that, but it's possible we'll screw up.) By posting comments, you grant us a non-revocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use whatever you post, in whatsoever fashion we deem useful, here or in any other forum, in PARANOIA or in any and all future products, including but not limited to derivative works, and specifically but not exclusively including the microbrewery beer, ale and porter; salty and sugary snack; and tattoo design rights deriving therefrom. Woohoo! Is that enough legalese for you? The Computer is Your Friend.
