Daniel Dourvaris, in response to questions over the legitimacy about his exploding MacBook Pro story:

You might consider it to be fishy and fabricated, but personally in retrospect I’m annoyed at myself for not having the state of mind to take a video of the laptop while it was on fire.

The only thing that was going through my head was, — I just lost what I was working on all day and yesterday — and my fingers hurt.

Daniel’s replies to the comments at his original story seem genuine too. I take back everything I said and I’m sorry. Daniel just doesn’t use social media a lot, he’s never published before, and he doesn’t anonymize his private GitHub commit history, which explains why he seems to be technologically offline even though he isn’t. Good to hear that Apple replaced his computer, too.
