guns don't kill people
I like to look at it this way. Guns don't kill people, bullets do.

bullets don't MURDER people, humans do.

And killing isn't whats illegal or detrimental to society, murder is.

matt - likes the sound of the word murder. (19 today BTW)

Yeah, I'm with Nek- I oppose hero-worship. Take no hero's, only inspiration... or something. Yeah, on these lines, the most inspirational coder (well, not the most, but my original) was PANTERA55.

I think, but I am in no means sure, that the CPU can't handle floating point numbers. I think they're where you have to actually code in the asm for continuosly shifting and carry the decimal yourself.
