Urgh! I only use 64bit OSs on machines I actually need to address >3GB in a single process (database servers or heavy data crunching). Having to have two sets of most libraries to maintain binary compatability is too much of a pain in the rear
What language is that then - Greek?

I'm developing reservations about some of these ads.
Last one I noted had two links - one offering to buy your used 406 'from £50' :evil: & a second advertising red diesel :!:
They haven't got it quite right yet, have they :P

Has someone been mucking around with the ad stuff? It seems to me like the ads have been moved to inside the second post on the page, completely mucking up the page footer if there's only one post on the page... It's been like this since I got back from .de last week :(

I was wondering if it was one of my browser plugins or something screwing with the page as nobody else seemed to notice but it happened on all my machines :oops:
