Money Looks Worse When Wrapped in Red Tape

What’s the EV of filing a remissions claim of $650 with the US Department of Justice?

Dear HAAANH,

As a player on Full Tilt Poker, you may be aware of the recent settlement reached with the U.S. Department of Justice (the “DOJ”).

Full Tilt Poker will not offer real money online poker in the U.S. until it is permissible to do so under relevant law.

In relation to your account balance, you will have the opportunity to file petition with the DOJ through a remission process which will be administrated by the DOJ.

In light of the above, only play chip games will be available to Full Tilt Poker players in the U.S. following re-launch, in the first week of November, 2012. Your Full Tilt Points balance will remain intact in your account.

Please note that we are unable to answer queries in relation to your funds – all such questions should be directed to the DOJ in accordance with the procedure to be defined by them.

Please retain this email for your records.

Sincerely,

Full Tilt Poker

Modules

In software engineering, the advantage of keeping your software modular is well-understood.  Treating individual classes or even entire projects as reusable components instead of context-sensitive, isolated systems allows you to build off of them easily in the future.  In my efforts to understand the overlap between electronic music production and software design, I have tried to think in similar terms, to little success.  I’m currently making efforts at collaborative production with a friend who uses Ableton (I use FL Studio).  Instead of a granular approach of sending him a collection of MIDI files, perhaps somehow associated with the samples and VSTs with which they are instrumented, I simply exported them to mp3.  We are both of the view that songs are all essentially vectors to be operated upon, and to take this a step further, a mixer track can be viewed as a vector of operators, each with friendly UIs.  In this view, an mp3 is not inferior by virtue of its lossy compression, it has just been scaled down, which can be accommodated by powerful EQing and multiband compression.
