I just couldn’t leave well enough alone. My attempt at Hacking my iPhone

I played around with my co-workers hacked iPhone and I just could not resist trying to hack my own.

Well I tried and I failed =(

I ran iBrickr last night and this is what happened. The following video is not mine, but my screen looks exactly like this…

Oh well, I’ll be up late trying to recover this thing.

Update:

Success!!!

Back to Factory Specs =D

Super Mario Bros. Theme in MIDI Art


If you’ve seen MIDI notation before, this shouldn’t be too far fetched. For the uninitiated, imagine the rolls in those old-time player pianos. What is amazing about this guy is that he actually added art in the MIDI notation.

His arrangements of the pieces are pretty awesome as well.

The SR-71 Blackbird

 Wwds Files 2007 11 Sr71 1
The SR-71 represented cutting-edge government technology back in the 1960s. Even today, its capabilities are nothing to scoff at (though I can only guess what the government is currently employing in the SR-71’s stead).

Here’s a great post of a memoir of an SR-71 pilot. Great stuff:

We trained for a year, flying out of Beale AFB in California, Kadena Airbase in Okinawa, and RAF Mildenhall in England. On a typical training mission, we would take off near Sacramento, refuel over Nevada, accelerate into Montana, obtain high Mach over Colorado, turn right over New Mexico, speed across the Los Angeles Basin, run up the West Coast, turn right at Seattle, then return to Beale.

Total flight time: two hours and 40 minutes.

One day, high above Arizona, we were monitoring the radio traffic of all the mortal airplanes below us. First, a Cessna pilot asked the air traffic controllers to check his ground speed. ‘Ninety knots,’
ATC replied. A twin Bonanza soon made the same request. ‘One-twenty on the ground,’ was the reply. To our surprise, a navy F-18 came over the radio with a ground speed check. I knew exactly what he was doing. Of course, he had a ground speed indicator in his cockpit, but he wanted to let all the bug-smashers in the valley know what real speed was. ‘Dusty 52, we show you at 620 on the ground,’ ATC responded.

The situation was too ripe. I heard the click of Walter’s mike button in the rear seat. In his most innocent voice, Walter startled the controller by asking for a ground speed check from 81,000 feet, clearly above controlled airspace. In a cool, professional voice, the controller replied, ‘Aspen 20, I show you at 1,982 knots on the ground.’ We did not hear another transmission on that frequency all the way to the coast.
