+1 for witnessing one of the earliest uses of Foo Bar :) How exactly were Foo and Foo Bar actually used there?

comment What is the etymology of the phrase “Source Code”?
@Gilbert Le Blanc, very interesting to hear it goes back all the way to punched cards! I've done some digging and found references to "source code" for punched cards as far back as 1955, see my answer.

comment Using CC Music in my project
If the music is part of the game, CC must be respected between developer and musician. If the user is downloading the music (but using the game to do the actual downloading), I think the CC must then be respected between user and musician, and is probably ok. But I think the question was about the former case -- including the music in the software.

What do you mean exactly? It doesn't matter how the music is used (played in a game, bundled with an mp3 player, etc), if you make money from the software or the music, you still have to respect all the conditions of Creative Commons licence.
