Well, that's good. Unix is supposed to be "everything a filesystem".

I was more impressed with stuff like the "Perl filesystem", where you
could write perl userspace modules for providing answers to the kernel
functions. Saw a nice one that would do a website filesystem - mount
http://www.slashdot.org, and see symlinks all over the place !

I thought that was just a /proc entry ? Anyway, how else would you
upgrade your PIII ? And more importantly, where do I get updated microcode
for said PIII ?
