Occassionaly, someone forgets that English slang is not always clear in
its meaning to the non-native English speakers who're members of this
mailing list. Please allow me to clarify the usage of the American slang
version of "What gives?" in the context of Paul's message:
Oh dearest Ragge who is powerful, great, and able to solve complex
kernel programming challenges beyond the scope of my meager wits.
I am greatly impressed by the speed with which you were able to solve
the current kernel problems with respect to the VAXstation 3100/M76.
This even given that you yourself do not have in your possession a
Model 76 on which to code and verify those changes. Still, that you
were able to get the new kernels running on the VS3100/M76 in
serial console mode again in only a few days is really super. I shall
forever be in amazement over your masterful porting skills. Although
you have accomplished many miraculous feats as of late and are most
certainly weary, I am still very eager for you to provide support for a
graphical console on the Model 76 even though I know you don't have such
a machine. Please keep us informed, and also many thanks for all the
recent hard work.
Hugs and Kisses,
I hope this clears things up a little in case they were previously hazy.
