Arthur here has been humbled by the challenge of coding
http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/parser.html -- an AI parser.

Since NGM's "Future Architecture" thread was hijacked by
ATM from news:comp.arch and cross-posted into c.s.super
seventeen days ago on 18 May 2002, Google Groups shows
three-hundred sixty-eight (368) follow-ups -- more posts
than news:comp.sys.super usually gets in a year, methinks.

The august outpouring of expert opinion and comment on
massively parallel programming (MPP) w.r.t. both hardware
and software has been of such a high quality as may even
warrant coverage in hardcopy venues such as The New York
Times or computer science publications. The thread has
been an authoritative "state-of-the-art" parallelism seminar.

Thanks to our hero at Cambridge, Eugene, you have witnessed
another one of your "Usenet at its best" moments.

Is that good, or bad?

My Dad's a Ph.D. in Classics, does that make him Pope, or something?

Oh yeah?

ROTFL!

There are former classics majors I have a great deal of respect, Arthur,
but if you have to post a statement like that, that's pretty sad.
