Interesting way to refer to them.  I guess that makes Windows 95 a
new birth defect that we're still trying to find a cure for?  :)

and the best news is that it being UNIX and C++ doesn't matter as much
as the fact that we have a good programming language and operating system.
Good is good right?

Of course to the author (after managing to get to the bottom of the post)
it does matter because he's dealing with AI and of course in order to do

people, myself included, get locked into the mindset that in order to A
you must use B method.)
