What is the point of sharing…

What is the point of sharing… if (some) people do not respect the license under which your work is published?

I mean. The license clearly states:

You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.

And if someone ‘forgets’ the rules and you remind them about the hard work you/your family have put into it, then you get comments like:

I take it that modesty is not your strong suit.” 😛

Or this one:

If it wasn’t invented by Pike then his father did.

Yeah budhead. You missed the news; Pull the earbuds out of your ears and listen, for once. I know that some of you can’t stand it, but it is a simple fact; my family did – and still does – a crap load of work for the OS X community.

So in short. Me hunting down this kind of issues has absolutely nothing to do with lack of modesty, but the lack of respect for hard work… time put in by someone else, and then you leave me with no other option; I have to remind you about it. Or is paying respect not a word in your vocabulary?

If not, then I would like to suggest that you look somewhere else for help/solutions and not use our work. Oh wait! You won’t be booting OS X today without the solutions we offered in the past. Yeah really…

Thank you for reading this blog post, and respecting our time, energy and hard work we’ve put into it. I presume that, from now on, you won’t forget to read and respect the license. Thanks 😉

I am speechless. I received a gift from Intel

Came with a nice note. Hey. What else can I say other than:

Thank you very much Intel

Time to setup a second Skylake based hack. Who is here to jump in? Asus, Gigabyte or Asrock? Oh wait. That was Gigabyte… yet again. Thank you guys!

Edit: The box from Intel arrived on Monday. The motherboard from Gigabyte on Tuesday, but I am still waiting for the G.Skill TridentZ modules to arrive. Not that it really matters, because I don’t have the time to setup a new Skylake configuration. Hopefully some time soon. Will keep you posted.
