OK, I understood the 404 and the 911, but the 187 and 411 have me baffledmkrishnan said:They need to put the 187 on those 404s and give me the 411 before I call 911.
It's a reference to the California penal code, Nermal. It is (was?) the code for a homicide, and so police officers referred to homicide that way, on the radio, and then gangs and kids on the street and hip-hoppers started saying it too. Now it's actually kinda old school. Sorry for the American Lingo.nuckinfutz said:187 is homicide folks. Pray you never get 187"d
Naw, you should spend the time on MR, and teach us NZ slang.Nermal said:Maybe I'd know these things if I watched more American TV
Sources hint possible delay in Mac OS X Tiger release.iindigo said:I don't know why people keep thinking Tiger is so early in it's development timeline... I've very thoroughly tested a build (the build right before 8A385), and IMO, it's not far off from being finished. I wouldn't be surprised to see it released this month, or early next month.
Here's my take on what Steve says at WWDC (modified from your version):virus1 said:i can see steve saying at wwdc, "now.. on to tiger. i promised you that we would give you tiger by the first half of 2005. now everybody is saying 'ok.., its the first half of 2005.. bring it on..' now we would like you to have tiger as much as you would like to, because of all the great technology behind it. but i think it is best for both all of you and apple that we delay it for a few more months because we know you don't want to spend hours and hours on our tech support lines figuring out a little bug that won't let you go on with your life. <crowd applauses>"
I don't think that was ever in doubt. Considering this will be the last pre-Longhorn major OS update that Apple releases I think Steve would have wanted it to be unleased with maximum profile impact; rather than the web page count down and early stores opening that Panther had.Chaszmyr said:Looks like a WWDC-time release to me
Oh please, PLEASE let it be released before WWDC - I need Tiger at my job! After using Tiger, Panther just doesn't cut the mustard anymore...Savage Henry said:I don't think that was ever in doubt.
