God, I hate dicking with the kernel.

Did God answer you on this complaint?

God uses Windows.  Didn't you know that?
God doesn't use base-2 computing systems; He uses base-4 systems; and they're not based on silicon, but on dexoyribonucleic acids. And instead of grouping the operands as bytes, He groups them as codons (triplets). And by the judicious use of noops (mistaken until recently as "junk DNA"), the code does some really neat regulation processes, preventing the overproduction of proteins in certain cases. And I've heard that by shifting the start bit, a routine can take on an entirely different function (thus having two modules on one bit of code - which is an incredible concept), but I'm not sure about this one. And the code sits on, and reproduces, its own machine on which to run. Really awesome programming and machine design. We _wish_ we could do a tenth as well with our systems. Maybe some day -- "like father, like son" (or daughter - no sexism intended here, folks).
