Yup, the Pangu team jailbroke 7.1.2 several weeks ago (I'm typing this on a jailbroken iPad Mini, actually).
No argument there. I was simply pointing out that it was possible. I used to regularly schedule recordings on my VCR, back in the old days... but yeah, it was a royal pain compared to Tivo.
On a side note - I recently was handed a project to "digitize" a VHS video one of our faculty uncovered. As I was doing the whole FF + RW thing (to retension the tape), the tape broke. Fortunately it broke near one of the non-tape sections that attach to the spools, so nothing significant was lost... but taking that thing apart, mending the tape, then hoping and praying it would stay together reminded me just how much I hated messing with those old things. Not to mention how annoyingly difficult a simple task like accurately scrubbing to a particular spot was!
And repairing cassettes was even worse - something I have done on more than one occasion!
I'm generally using BBedit from my Mac. SFTP is my friend.
Besides, who wants all the extra kruft that goes along with Gedit or Kate on a server? In that case it's not the editor I'm objecting to - it's the 100 other required packages that go along with it.
Responsible media, right! Telling geeks about a hack, is like giving crack to a junkie. Tomorrow's lead, dozens die recreating S-Class hack.
And thus is the human gene pool improved by some small amount.
The Centers for Disease Control is in Atlanta.
It's nice to see reason and logic flying out the window with most of these early posts, by the way. I think I'll invest in pitchfork futures, pronto!
FYI grass didn't actually exist during the age of the dinosaurs - it's a C4 plant, and those evolved somewhat later.
I love my Tivo, but - I also owned a VCR for the twenty years prior to my first Tivo. Time shifting has been around for 40+ years now.
Yes, it's not like the maintainers of the PHP language ever broke crypt() and then debated whether or not they were going to fix it...
Relying on Java for anything fundamental is going to bite you in the butt.
PHP is forecast to be very popular going forward. That means your employment prospects are good!
I'm not sure why you're conflating your understandable disgust over the current state of copyright litigation in the US with issues related to code integrity. There's not exactly a lot of common ground there.
Now if you had mentioned DHS' cozy relationship with the NSA - an organization that most of us expect is actively subverting both code and the standards we rely on - that would make more sense.
Quick, Slashdotters - tell me who to hate!
I've been a vegetarian for 15 years and can run a marathon. How about you?
Well, for starters, obviously vegetarianism causes insanity.
Nice rant about hipsters, but do you have any actual arguments against what Greenpeace is saying?
Given he felt he had to invoke the same angry and vague rant five slightly different ways - and even numbered them for some bizarre reason - it's obvious he does not.
So you have no idea if it's true, and you haven't bothered to check - or you just made it up and figured you'd throw it out there anonymously because hey, this is Slashdot and there are always at least a few guys of most any political bent willing to run with absurd stories.
Don't be lazy - if you have evidence, at least post a link so people can discuss it.
