- Dear Colleagues
People rarely read the terms posted at websites. The HotPot terms are
quite clearly stated here:
"Do I Need a Licence?
Hot Potatoes is free for use by individuals working for state-funded
educational institutions which are non-profit making, on the
condition that the material you produce using the program is freely
available to anyone via the WWW. However, you need to purchase a
licence under any of the following conditions:
- You are working for a company or corporation, or an educational
institution which is not state-funded.
- You are in business for yourself.
- You charge money for access to the material you make with Hot
- You do not make the material freely available through the WWW."
I know the authors personally and have visited their university
several times. They are very generous and hard-working, and IMHO the
above terms are very reasonable.
Emeritus Professor of CALL
- You're right, Eric! I am (or rather was) guilty of
overusing "obvious" and "obviously". I wrote an 80-page booklet on
CALL back in 1982 - my first major published work. It was reviewed
very positively, apart from one reviewer's comment on my overuse
of "obvious" and "obviously". Around that time the first
concordancers and word-frequency counters for microcomputers were
appearing, so I began to use them to analyse my writings - and I
still do. Yes, the reviewer was right. I am now a reformed character!
