 +Some people are susceptible to epileptic
 +seizures or loss of consciousness when exposed
 +to flashing lights or light patterns in
 +everyday life.
 +
 +Such people could have a seizure while watching
 +television or using computers. This may happen
 +even if the person has no medical history of
 +epilepsy.
 +
 +If you or anyone in your family has ever had
 +epilepsy related symptoms such as seizures or
 +loss of consciousness, when exposed to flashing
 +lights, consult your doctor prior to using a
 +computer program.
 +
 +We advise that guardians/parents should monitor
 +the use of computers by their children. If you
 +or your child are having any the following
 +symptoms: dizziness, blurred vision, eye or
 +muscle twitches, loss of consciousness,
 +disorientation, any involuntary movement or
 +convulsion, while using a computer, IMMEDIATELY

 +a screen is well lit.
 +
 +Rest for at least 10 to 15 minutes per hour
 +while using a computer.
 +
 +Warning about the source & binaries!
 +
 +You must understand that this is beta software,
 +beta software is not software that is
 +considered to be production ready, but software
 +that might still contain bugs, This is simply
 +source that we have been trying on a few test
 +machines, we have no way of knowing what will
 +happen if you chose to use or compile the
 +source or run the binaries on your system.

 +SOURCE LICENSE - Version 1, Jan 2004
 +
 +Copyright (C) 2004, Fire Flower Cybernetics
 +
 +TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR
 +COPYING, DISTRIBUTION,
 +COMPILING AND MODIFICATION
 +
 +Activities other than copying, distribution and
 +modification of the source code are not covered
 +by this license; they are outside its scope. 
 +
 +1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies
 +of the program's source code as you receive it,
 +in any medium, provided that you conspicuously
 +and appropriately publish on and with each copy
 +this copyright notice and disclaimer of
 +warranty; keep intact all the notices  that
 +refer to this license and to the absence of any
 +warranty; and give any other recipients of the
 +program a copy of this license along with the
 +program.
 +
 +2. You may at your option offer warranty
 +protection for end users of the program
 +compiled from original or derived source in
 +exchange for a fee. All such schemes and rates
 +must be reported to the original copyright
 +holder.
 +
 +3. You may modify the source or copies of the
 +program or any portion of it, thus forming a
 +work based on the program(s), and copy and
 +distribute such modifications or work under the
 +terms of Section 1 above, provided that you
 +also meet all of these conditions:
 +
 +a) You must cause the modified files to carry
 +prominent notices stating that you changed the
 +files and the date of any change.
 +
 +b) You must cause any work that you modify,
 +that in whole or in part contains or is derived
 +from the source, to be licensed as a whole at
 +no charge to third parties deemed appropriate
 +under the terms of our EULA which may be in
 +effect at any given time.
 +
 +c) When run by an end user you must cause the
 +compiled binary from the  derived/modified
 +source, to clearly display the below text in an
 +area on screen clearly distinguiashable from
 +the rest of the program interface yet as part of
 +the whole on screen experience.
 +
 +   BEGIN TEXT 
 +
 +   "The program you are currently running
 +   contains altered/modified source code based
 +   on software created and copyrighted by Fire
 +   Flower Cybernetics - Original Source Code
 +   should be made available with this binary
 +   distribution. Should the source code not be
 +   present you can obtain it from
 +   http://globability.org 
 +
 +   Please report violations so that they can be
 +   remedied" 
 +
 +   END TEXT
 +
 +d) The modified source must accompany the
 +distribution and this license and all copyright
 +notices must be applied to the modified source.
 +
 +e) Any such modifications must be reported to
 +Fire Flower Cybernetics or to an affiliate
 +appointed by Fire Flower Cybernetics. The
 +source code of such alterations must be sent to
 +Fire Flower Cybernetics or it's appointed
 +affiliates fully commented along with a signed
 +copy of a cooperation agreement available from
 +Fire Flower Cybernetics or it's appointed
 +affiliates.
 +
 +4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or
 +distribute the source except as expressly
 +provided under this license.  Any attempt
 +otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, compile
 +or distribute the source is void, and will
 +automatically terminate your rights under this
 +license.
 +
 +5. In order to copy, distribute, compile and/or
 +modify this source, you are required to accept
 +this license, since you have not signed it some
 +governments may not consider it a valid
 +license. However, nothing else grants you
 +permission to modify or distribute the source
 +or create derivative works. These actions are
 +prohibited by law if you do not accept this
 +license. 
 +
 +Therefore, by modifying or distributing the
 +source (or any work based on the source), you
 +indicate your acceptance of this license to do
 +so, and all its terms and conditions for
 +copying, distributing, compiling or modifying
 +the program or works based on it.
 +
 +6. Each time you redistribute the source (or
 +any work based on the source), the recipient
 +automatically receives a license from the
 +original licensor to copy, distribute or modify
 +the program subject to these terms and
 +conditions.  You may not impose any further
 +restrictions on the recipients' exercise of
 +the rights granted herein nor add any rights.
 +
 +You are not responsible for enforcing
 +compliance by third parties to this License.
 +
 +7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or
 +allegation of patent infringement or for any
 +other reason (not limited to patent issues),
 +conditions are imposed on you (whether by court
 +order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict
 +the conditions of this license, they do not
 +excuse you from the conditions of this license.
 +If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy
 +simultaneously your obligations under this
 +license and any other pertinent obligations,
 +then as a consequence you may not distribute
 +the source or compilation at all. For example,
 +if a patent license would not permit
 +royalty-free redistribution of the source or
 +compilation by all those who receive copies
 +directly or indirectly through you, then the
 +only way you could satisfy both it and this
 +License would be to refrain entirely from
 +distribution of the Program.
 +
 +
 +It is not the purpose of this license to induce
 +you to infringe any patents or other property
 +right claims or to contest validity of any such
 +claims or laws; this license has the sole
 +purpose of protecting the integrity of the
 +source you have in your care; it is up to the
 +author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
 +to distribute software through this or any
 +other license and a licensee cannot impose that
 +choice. Furthermore it is up to the licensee to
 +make sure he/she is able to do so.
 +
 +8. If the distribution and/or use of the
 +program is restricted in certain countries
 +either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces,
 +or any other practices the original copyright
 +holder who places the program under this
 +license may add an explicit geographical
 +distribution limitation excluding those
 +countries or regions, so that distribution is
 +permitted only in or among countries not thus
 +excluded.  In such case, this license
 +incorporates the limitation as if written in
 +the body of this license.
 +
 +9. Fire Flower Cybernetics or affiliates
 +licenced by Fire Flower Cybernetics may publish
 +revised and/or new versions of the Source
 +License from time to time.  Such new versions
 +can supercede any previous licenses granted
 +should Fire Flower Cybernetics or appointed
 +affiliates choose to do so.
 +
 +Each version of this license will be given a
 +distinguishing version number and be dated.
 +
 +10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the
 +program into other free/open programs whose
 +distribution conditions are different, write to
 +the author to ask for permission.  
 +
 +
 +NO WARRANTY
 +
 +11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED
 +FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
 +FOR THE PROGRAM WHATSOEVER. EXCEPT
 +WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE
 +COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER
 +PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS"
 +WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER
 +EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT
 +NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED
 +WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
 +FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE
 +ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND
 +PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH
 +YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE
 +DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL
 +NECESSARY SERVICING,REPAIR OR
 +CORRECTION.
 +
 +12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS AGREED TO IN
 +WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR
 +ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
 +REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED
 +ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
 +OF ANY KIND! INCLUDING ANY GENERAL,
 +SPECIAL, BODILY, INCIDENTAL OR IN
 +SEQUENTIAL NOR ANY OTHER DAMAGES
 +ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY
 +TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT
 +LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
 +RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES
 +SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR
 +A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE
 +WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF
 +SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN
 +ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
 +DAMAGES.
 +
 +13. THIS LICENSE MAY BE TERMINATED BY
 +FIRE FLOWER CYBERNETICS OR AN
 +AFFILIATE APPOINTED BY FIRE FLOWER
 +CYBERNETICS AT A TIME OF THEIR
 +CHOOSING AND ALL USE OF THE SOURCE
 +MUST BE IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED. 
 +
 +END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
 +
 +It is under consideration to GNU GPL the
 +software if the right sponsor comes along or
 +other ways are found to secure a continued
 +development effort for the team.
