Hello Matthew,

Thanks for your reply. The only point that remains to be made is that I 
find the 'Cheers' at the end of your message quite ironic.

Being the owner of 2 kittens, I must dutifully assert that there is 
nothing to cheer about under the current situation. For the three of us, 
it has been a long-standing favourite pastime to watch Chuck in action. 
We would miss football (for some reason called soccer in the US) games / 
cricket games / movies / all other forms of entertainment, just to wait 
and watch for Chuck to show up. My kittens never managed to grab him, 
despite numerous valiant efforts. But this never undermined the 
fascination all three of us shared for Chuck.

If ever the FreeBSD operating system or AMD processors had a bug, this 
would be it. Above all, even to someone not in love with cats, having a 
genial and smiling mouse would be infinitely preferable to having such a 
nasty bug.
