It's just a workaround for using Microsoft's signing key a little more easily. The linked blog gives more details.

"Meadow muffins."

I grew up in farm country, and never heard that one.

We always were more interested in what grew out of them, but then again....well, I won't inflame this TOS violation more than I have.

There needs to be a way to defeat this lockdown, not hump it passing by.

Ditto Gus3, I grew up on a dairy farm....We just called 'em cowpats. And we even have competitions at country shows to see how far you can throw them***.

However I'm with Tuxchick on this: what an elegant and eloquent metaphor for describing Microsoft's actions when we have all probably used far more descriptive and highly censored words for the same concept. Tuxchick's phrase says it all with a perfect mental pictures, without ever being crude, rude and vulgar.....Love it.

***Dried ones of course.......discus throwing.
