I will be more succint in future comments as wordyness seems to be asource of confusion.

It does not makes *yet*?. Mister, what is nonsense does not make sense *ever*.
Besides when was the last time you checked memory architectures? in the 80's? Current 64 bit memory architectures already support this adressing scheme without the need to inventing a computational model (For whatever it maybe). What do you call *linear*

This comment is the most Interesting you have posted so far. What is linear to you? Received on Sun Jun 04 2006 - 22:01:32 CEST
