the word on the page means "preved" i think..
EDIT 2: Also has something to do with FreeBSD?
"Hello, is this an anime channel? -- Yes. -- How do I patch KDE2 under FreeBSD?"
The phrase was meant to satirize the disproportionate amount of technical "geeky" conversations often occurring on that channel, having nothing to do with anime. Later it was popularized and became widely cited in Russophone chats.
EDIT 3: dont mind me im just throwing stuff out there.

Lol, nice one devteam! I really thought for a second that nothing was sacred in the world of hacking."Spaceships don't come equipped with rear view mirrors..." -Andre Benjamin the 3000th

Haha! Nice one. When I saw Steve Jobs I was like WTF?!? Why don't any pages on the site work? I tried going directly to the pwnage announcement and it said "404 Not Found".

quote from engadgetiPhone Dev Team claims to be dismantled, Pwnage tool dead for good? Update: nope.

April Fool's day joke? Could be, but we're hearing it might be real: the long standing bastions of iPhone hacking, the iPhone Dev Team, posted a note to their site stating that "[today] the DevTeam was approached by an unnamed party to sell all of the intellectual property and related applications. After much consideration [What, hours? -Ed.] the offer was accepted and the [Dev Team] has ceased." Seems a bit outlandish. For those not in the know, the Dev Team is the same group that posted jailbreaks to 2.0 (before it was out), 1.1.3, 1.1.1, developed the AnySIM unlock, and are thiiiis close to releasing the Pwnage tool (which promised total unsigned firmware control of the iPhone). So yeah, it may well be a prank, we wouldn't put it past them. Funny thing about the hacker community though, one goes down and 10 more spring up.
[Thanks Andrew, Erica]
Update: Yep, it's an April Fool's joke. We're just going to go offline until April 2nd, peace.

A few people-including me- have noticed no links to pages within the iphone-dev.com site work nor are there any google pages to any parts of the site.
I'm guessing that with the april fools they are building a new site or something for tomorrow(2nd)

I'd like to retract my outrageous statement and just emphasize that Edwin Donnelly is a bender.
