8chan Raises Bail for TempleOS Creator Terry Davis

After a short run living out of a Kia van with two charges and two failure to appear warrants, Terry Davis, the founder of the TempleOS is now in custody. Davis is currently being held in Nye County Detention center, Southern Area Sub Station (Pahrump Jail). Terry Davis is a literal mad genius. A genius programmer who not only designed his own OS, a compiler to run it (and in ring 0/kernel code, to boot!).

In addition to being a driven computer genius, he lives with schizophrenia. Terry has spent years communicating with God via his TempleOS operating system. Ta lithe TempleOS is meant to be a literal covenant with the God of the Bible. Despite certain inherent quirks that prevent it from becoming the next replacement for Linux, OS X or Windows, it has inspired some serious interest due to its technical merits.

Would like to talk about it</p>&mdash; Mason Dyess (@MasonTechPosts) <a href="">April 22, 2016</a></blockquote>

In addition to his amazing technical prowess and religious quirks, Terry is known for his live streams which frequently involve him explaining his troubles with "glow-in-the-dark CIA niggers" (Davis claims to have been recruited previously for the CIA. <a href="">Kiwifarms had designated Davis a "lolcow"</a> and were keeping up with the attempts to impersonate a Twitter science celebrity which may have had a part in the latest turn of events. A domestic battery charge and gross lewdness resulted in court dates that Terry had missed and seemed to be blowing off.

<a href="">Most recently, Terry had quite possibly broken his collarbone.</a> He was last seen smoking cigarettes, drinking Diet Shasta and live streaming from the Kia van. Terry has a devoted cult following who seem to be fairly protective of him. In addition, many an anon from 8chan has designated Terry /ourguy/.

Thanks to 8chan's owner, Jim Watkins, we have fully funded Terry's bail. Payment through the fundraising service should clear tomorrow and we'll arrange his release.
