True. I just throw big words into my sentences to make myself seem
impressive (sometimes I don't even know what I'm writing and it just
happens to work out). Checking with the online thesaurus it is
grammatically feasible to say "seminally useless" in the sense I meant
it, which is to say it was bunk from the get go.

Right. I hadn't thought of that. I suppose a few latchable LEDs hooked
into decoders in the address path at the right places might work for that
sort of thing, if not kludgily so.

all weekend :)
