Talking to my children and wife in Dutch (I'm Dutch) is less straining to the
brain then

Exchanging information and thoughts with Perl 5 Porters on a mailing list,
where a dictionary comes in handy once in a while, which is easier then

Talking to a German perl monger on a Perl congress in London in German where my
brain cache is flooded with translation tables with sub-optimal search- and
index methods used for relating the four languages (Dutch, English, German and
Perl). This is even more a problem during diner/pubs where the brain is
swapping all the time sharing its resources between social and technical

In the same way I thought that running a ELF/64 process on a 64 kernel in a
hppa2.0w environment would be faster/more efficient then

running a 32 bit process on a 64 bit kernel on a hppa2.0w architecture which
should be significantly faster then

running a 64 bit program on a 64bit emulation layer to a 32bit wine emulation
running on linux emulating a 16bit Win95 kernel or something even less useful.

Just some thoughts. Anyone interested in why B/16 fails here? Investigate?
