But that's not the geek way of explaining things. Arm movements are especially important when explaining useless facts. Did you know that half a byte is a nibble (yes, every coder knows this, so this isn't addressed to you). And that's another useless fact.

4 bits is a nibble. I'm almost certain about this. I remember it was in some asm-programming-for-n00bs-sheet Wraith gave to me sometime in the year 1129 B.C. (a long time ago)

Oh? I heard that tuna will be instinct in only a few decades if they will continue fishing it at this rate.

My guess is the word he was looking for is extinct.

Please try to stick to the topic, though. :)

One problem... we asked the question "Will TT2 be able to be run on slow computers" and I think we got our answer. So, there's not much point to this topic then.... Is there? I mean, you can't change the name of it or anything....

oh blotch, but typing "instinct" instead of "extinct" really won me the prize of shooting the thread off-topic. NEVER try to type in a hurry,
