    Basic DTrace functions broken by an apparently uninformed source hack by Apple. The assumption in the comments is that this is to prevent iTunes being hacked. DRM causes friendly-fire casualties again.
  • I say pyjama…
    "So why is it that British people prefer to read American books exactly as their authors intended, but books written in British English need to undergo an intensive word substitution exercise to make them fit for American consumption?"
