  With deep apologies to everyone in the entire world of comp.arch,
  and a warning not to make waves against the tsunami of the future,
  (oh, gee! looking up "tsunami" in Webster's yields: TUBIFEX)
  MENTIFEX AI has set up "The Computer Architecture FAQ" at
  http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Agora/7256/comparch.html
  as a sub-page of the "Encyclopedia Cybernetica" Web portal.

  The online book "The Art of the Meme" is no done deal because
  the Advanced Memetic Techniques are so powerful that we can't
  stop to WRITE about them at a time when logic dictates that
  we USE the techniques in this present instance to usurp the
  memes of computer science in the service of the AI Revolution:
