I'm still trying to hack various things but am hampered by severe lack of time
and not really knowing what I'm doing :-)
Due in part to the number of reported problems I've had to go for more Compaqs
as additional systems here, but I'm still hoping to get to a position where
ordinary users aren't running x86 to improve resilience to malware.
I guess that's a vote for keeping 32-bit live if at all possible, I just wish I
could do more to contribute.
