As every parent knows, a tidy bedroom is very different from a
messy one. The number of items in the room may be exactly the same,
but the difference between orderly and disorderly arrangements is
immediately apparent. Now imagine a house with millions of rooms,
each of which is either tidy or messy. A robot in the house can
inspect each room to see which state it is in. It can also turn a
tidy room into a messy one (by throwing things on the floor at
random) and a messy room into a tidy one (by tidying it up). This,
in essence, is how a new class of memory chip works.

"RFC" always worries me. I read it as "Really Flakey Code"

Sorry for the late response, was too busy drinking with other
kernel developers in San Diego and laughing at all you that are
still doing real work.

Yes I have now read kernel bugzilla, every open bug (and closed
over half of them). An interesting read, mysteries that Sherlock
Holmes would puzzle over, a length that wanted a good editor
urgently, an interesting line in social commentary, the odd bit of
unnecessary bad language. As a read it is however overall not well
explained or structured.
