Actually, I think it's farily well-known that the PC architecture sucks 
(this is why I use sparcs and old motorola boxes :-).  This would be like 
me (the hp300 port-master) saying that "the HIL sucks" (which, IMHO, it 
does :-).

Really, I think you're being a little hard on Charles in this case...It's 
perfectly fine to complain about broken and/or stupidly-designed hardware 
if you end up being the one who works around the lossage in software.
