Bryan, may I speak as a friend?

I think that the thread about yum has gotten you (somewhat)
understandably agitated, and it's starting to spill over
a little into other areas. I suggest that you back off and
relax with a cold one (it's 5:00 here in Dallas), and start
over tomorrow.

I have no idea about this thread, since I'm not a CPU expert.
I have written code with spinlocks for multiprocessors, but
that's about it. My main experience is with MIMD loosely-coupled, not
tightly-coupled. So I'm not going to comment on the thread
in general. I will say that it is pretty ridiculous to claim
that two processors are essentially the same because they
are both stored-program machines.

Anyway, maybe things are just getting a bit much for you
today. I know that they have for me a few times.

This message made from 100% recycled bits.
You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
