Port of S.F. Sinks Local Man's Dream To Build Dumpy Waterfront Restaurant

This is a shame, because San Francisco is literally built on scuttled boats.

Vincent Lackey, the owner of a rotting houseboat that has been stuck in the mud in India Basin for months, is about to see his dreams of opening a waterfront restaurant come to a watery end. Lackey, who planned to convert his dumpy houseboat in to a floating eatery just in time to serve hungry America's Cup fans, has now had his glorified piece of driftwood confiscated by the Port of San Francisco while they figure out how to salvage the vessel or scuttle it entirely.

More extortionate Apple Codesign dickery

Fun fact!

With the default security settings on MacOS 10.8, Apple refuses to launch apps that are signed with a signature that is validly signed by Apple's CA if that key is for the iOS store instead of the OSX store.

% codesign -dvv DaliClock.app
Executable=DaliClock.app/Contents/MacOS/DaliClock
Identifier=org.jwz.DaliClock
Format=bundle with Mach-O universal (i386 x86_64)
CodeDirectory v=20100 size=7246 flags=0x0(none) hashes=356+3 location=embedded
Signature size=4334
Authority=iPhone Developer: Jamie Zawinski (Y5M82TL69N)
Authority=Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Certification Authority
Authority=Apple Root CA

Signed Time=Aug 22, 2012 1:15:13 PM
Info.plist entries=23
Sealed Resources rules=4 files=3
Internal requirements count=1 size=184

That right there is a valid, paid-for and un-expired cert, issued by Apple's one-and-only CA. A cert is a cert and a CA is a CA, so the only justification for this behavior is that they want to extort an additional hundred bucks a year out of you if you develop apps for both iOS and OSX.

Dicks.
