Uh.. ehr... I know that it's code gone beyond all hope but... I was
right today thinking about evaluating it and thinking about what could
be done for reintegrating it.

I mean, that code is gone anyways, and removing it would clean lot of
stuff -- I know -- , but can you wait at least one weak and then
remove it if I've been silent?

Hmm, a network distributed Mach system, more than. You could've
accessed devices, memory objects and ports in a LAN.


It was a type of people I did not know, I found them very strange and
they did not inspire confidence at all. Later I learned that I had been
introduced to electronic engineers.
