🐌. Native speaker of American English. Linux user. Familiar with several programming languages in the procedural, OO, and functional paradigms.

Link rot is evil. Archive everything. The keyboard is king. Correctness over performance. Canonicalize, normalize, deduplicate. Don't repeat yourself. UTF-8 > UTF-16. Use static typing: good for tooling. Re-use; don't re-invent. Correctness, then clarity, then concision and elegance. Play devil's advocate. First understand opponents' positions.

Not sure. The relevant provision is the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-circumvention one.

If not, you can post a patch. However, if what you do actually works around access restrictions, the DMCA forbids sharing it (U.S. law).

comment Is it legal to post a modified free android app on my website?
It depends. If the app is open-source, it's fine as long as you follow the license (typical requirements: credit original authors, release your code under the same license).

@Lagrange: By the way, there's no need to add [SOLVED] to the title. Marking an answer as accepted (which you have done) is enough.
