SubjectRe: Intel microcode fixes [OFF-TOPIC]
In message <Pine.LNX.3.96.981119215610.26981A-100000@nnm>, John Fulmer 
| In a serious note (microcode viruses aside), I don't think that I or many

I knew. And got flamed heavily when I mentioned it on a mailing list,
because everyone else on the list was absolutely certain that it wasn't and
in fact couldn't be. (Not this list, one where clues are somewhat rarer.)
