I admit no further piracy then that, as that would be publicly admitting to doing illegal activities.
pleading the fifth are we now...

Only thing that I still have problems with is my Intel GMA 4500MHD, other then that I never kernel panic'd. My intel GMA 4500MHD was stuck at 1024x768.. but theres almost a working kext for it.
another thing that bugged me, the inherent unsupportable chipset that i have, so i just gave up....

Lol I'm sure 3/4 of the active SF users were pirating every new build prior to RTM. :P

which is the main reason why i asked....
well then again i was pointing to the beta (which was installed on my server up until 10 days ago, i hadnt bother to change since the release of it (torrent link)...)

If its "leaked", the whole world has access... Even me...

What chipset is that? Aside from the graphic problem thats just about cured (only resolution fix.. no QE/CI yet), my iDeneb Copy of OS X 10.5.7 ran better then my sister's macbook!

That, I understand.

The loop in the P, representing the tongue, I assume.

The icon (to me) roughly represents 'hunger', 'ice cream cone attack',
or various other interpretations that the ladies might enjoy.

But, I still don't get it...

Ain't no definition on the SF 'Smilie List', i.e. ( = geek), ( = cool), etc.

Then why the tongue ?

Seems to imply a certain 'happy voraciousness'...

Lets just leave this topic at; Its how I communicate online.

I obviously don't manipulate the fabric of existence and make a =P pop out of thin air during a normal conversation with a buddy in real life. (that would be cool though)

Roger that...

I'm just trying to understand the 'fabric of existence', computerwise, w7 style...

(Or Unix, with choice of specific shell.)

The: has me puzzled...

The questions ain't about you personally, just a search for understanding the: ( =P ) icon.
