From the information in the XDA-Developers thread, HTC's e-mail support is oblivious to the fact that they are the contact point for acquiring said source code. For any one who has read the GPL v2 can see that this failure to provide requested information is a violation of the license itself. This situation is very similar to previous issues with HTC — the company ignores users unless otherwise compelled to address them. This should not be a reoccurring issue — someone with power needs to light a fire under under the situation. Interestingly enough, HTC promptly released the source code for the Evo and Incredible within mere hours after the public compiled binary was released.

i'm typing this on a HP Compaq 8510p, a business laptop. maybe i'm unlucky but it seems like mine is self destructing. SquareTrade's figures put Apple at #3 and Asus at #1. those are pre unibody aluminum MBP MacBook Pro figures too.
Don't try to move power from summer to winter. Let the hydro plants do that if necessary, and if that isn't enough, add more wind turbines (more wind in winter than in summer).
Apple is reportedly close to launching its long-rumored ____. It could be Apple's latest billion-dollar jackpot.
Analyst speculation says the ___ will be launched in September and be in the shops by Christmas. A new mention of the ___ crops up on Twitter around every eight minutes.
The ___ is rumoured to be any size and scale between the iPod Shuffle and the Macintosh IIfx. Some have described the ___ as a "___-killer." Analyst speculation suggests the ___ will use a fantastic new interface. "It will be a whole new paradigm," said Apple blogger Leander Kahney.
Expectations flared when technology research analysts noted that Taiwanese suppliers had received orders from an unknown buyer for a particular obscure component to be filled by the end of the year. "The only possible conclusion is that Apple will launch a ___ by early next year," said Kahney. "They've been working on the ___ for the past six years. People expect it to be the ultimate Apple surprise. This thing will knock people's socks off."
Apple has refused to comment on the ___ speculation. But Tim Cook, its chief operating officer, recently hinted that the company was working on something "very innovative." Steve Jobs is thought to have been personally involved in the development of the ___ over the past two years.
Daniel Eran Dilger noted on roughlydrafted.com that the ___ would need to be fueled on pain, angst, the destruction of the ecology, the torture of kittens and the tears of widows and orphans, but put together a devastatingly convincing and very lengthy explanation as to why Apple's actions were the only humanly acceptable option for the consumer, the technology industry and the future of humanity, and that Jobs' Nobel Peace Prize was ridiculously overdue. And that all problems were clearly Microsoft's fault.
The article points out that several areas of the kernel, in particular, the function "setuid", are involved in this new exploit. "The exploit code was released Friday by Brad Spengler of grsecurity, a developer of applications that enhance the security of the open-source OS. While it targets Linux versions that have yet to be adopted by most vendors, the bug has captured the attention of security researchers, who say it exposes overlooked weaknesses."
What I find interesting about the article is that although it focuses on newer versions of the kernel, near the end of the article, they offer the following food for thought: "Setuid is well-known as a chronic security hole," Rob Graham, CEO of Errata Security wrote in an email. "Torvalds is right, it's not a kernel issue, but it is a design 'flaw' that is inherited from Unix. There is no easy solution to the problem, though, so it's going to be with us for many years to come."
A chronic security hole? In Linux?"

No, but you can be pretty damned certain that 500 copies of "10001101" in a row are not random: that is higher entropy than your million 1s.
Today I found out I was suspended from school for ten days for possessing programs that were "capable of doing damage to the private school network". The programs were Firefox Portable and VNC viewer, and BlueJ Java Development Environment. I, an 18 year old high school student, was informed through my aunt, who was called about this disciplinary problem ( Isn't this private information?). I have no chance to appeal this suspension and are being forcefully and permanently removed from my Java(c) Computer Science and US government and Politics courses which I was taking through the state. I will most likely receive grades of ZERO (0) for both classes, thus destroying any chance I ever have of getting into a decent college. I am initially receiving a 10 day suspension, and then possibly a longer suspension pending investigation. Note- the school has found nothing I might have done to potentially cause damage to the network, I was suspended for having the programs- nothing else. I plan to contact the Electronic Frontier Foundation for help with this clearly unfair oppression. The only (thought) crime I have committed is one arousing suspicion, not arriving from action. I will provide further information after I officially receive the suspension."
"There is something brewing in the world of Linux, because this year really seems to become the year Linux makes serious headways on the desktop. For Linus Torvalds it is the addition of synchromatic memory support into the new kernel 6.4.12-28 as a serious and major step in the right direction. 'We now have support for voicecontrolled system at the kernel level'. In a few months time we will also see the first distributions with ex
