My objective was to make it easy to hack your Tivo. And I did. Thousands of people benefited from my assembling of OTHERS work. I never took credit for that work and I always recognized those that authored it.
However, my work (ISO) gave Tivo and Tivo hacking popularity, which was good for everyone - DealDatabase, authors Tivo, the less gifted and yes, even the lazy and pirates.
I also continued the work of TPM (Tivo Package Manager) and created the Knoppix Lite Distro, which were used by many. I also created a second ISO which was entirely TPM based but I never released it to the public.
Unfortunately (and understandibly) certain egos here were brused - and those offended (and in a position of power) did not handle the situation very well especially after we obtained their real names and addresses.
I certainly hope you all have gotten past it by now.
Anyway, I just stopped by to wish everyone the best!
