I think there was a thread recently about x86 kit being the spawn of the
devil or something. You might have missed it, it was quite small.

(My position is that I don't really care what people use as long as it
doesn't interfere with what I'm doing.)

I do get out more. My other hobby is Real Ale.

I usually do, although it can be fun to pick fun of the movie, or find
anachronisms if the company I'm with is in a suitably silly mood and wants
to do so too.

However, for turning my brain off, I've got loads of non-hacker and rather
more credible (at least to my eyes) films that I enjoy even more.
