If you're designing a computer, you have two choices. Either you
make a general-purpose computer that can do everything that every
other computer can do; or you make a special-purpose device that
can do only an infinitesimally small fraction of all the interesting
computations one might want to do. There's no in-between.

http://zgp.org/~dmarti     demanding DMCA reform is going to get the
dmarti@zgp.org             injustice of the DMCA in front of the next
KG6INA                     jury.  Make noise.  It counts.
