    I was looking through my box of old phone parts... (extensive collection) and found a dusty old memory card... (4 meg... it was big in its day). I couldn't remember seeing it there or purchasing it or anything... so i decided to dig out an old adapter and boot it up....

    It was loaded with very old text files.... amongst which was the following cryptic verse....

    In the age of desperate hope will come a winter of financial despair. The sun will rise BLACK and ripe like a BERRY in season, and a STORM of joy and great promise will sweep the land.... Many will doubt the storm's potential and fail... there will be great unrest in the land from the CRACK of Platform to the Place where grow the BERRIES of OS. The people of this unhappy place will cry out with a loud voice saying REFRESH, REFRESH, REFRESH... but they will not find the answers they seek. They will bow to the god BETA... and will seek out the mighty HYBRID. Some will flee and others will wage war on the unjust PROVIDERS. False prophets will claim knowledge of the perfect BUILD and prophesy the hour of its coming. The people in their frenzy will cast them down in FLAMEs. Do not lose hope... When all seems darkest morn shall dawn... and the STORM of joy and promise will come with POWER. Cast your eyes to the East and await its coming.

    Cracknadamus.... 4.7.0.150


    I don't know if this fits in this forum... but it seems to apply.... I can't confirm the voracity of Cracknadamus... but i am pretty sure he works at RIM.

    Actually I tried but the mods moved it here. I was just feeling creative and thought it might lighten the mood.

    I saw a PBS special on cracknadamus today. Fascinating person, but wildly misunderstood during his time.

    That is what I read about him.... Most people thought he was CRACKED... but he was actually just an under appreciated creative genius...

    There's a new book about him coming out real soon. Actually quite controversial. Some say with links to Nostradamus.

    We'll see...

    That is one of the funniest things I have read in a long time. Spot on with the vague references and giant leaps inherent in most of Nostradamus' alleged prophecies. I respect and admire your comic genius.

    So, when do you think we see another leak and / or official OS release?
