Thanks.The place is here, I call it South Pole due to unusual cold in winter times despite it is positioned further to the south then any city in Europe. The cold is due to 1200ft altitude, this year few days were below the freezing outside, some palm trees and flowers did not survive. It's probably just me, other people like this weather though. Otherwise this is the best place to live, biking and golfing in North California. Welcome to come when you're in California.

What about Cádiz, Jerez, Algiciras and Málaga, aren't they south of you?

The scenery looks just like Andalucía too.

I meant biggest tourists and vacations cities on the south like Athens and Rome. The scenery is pretty common in the world, some wrote me that it also resembles the Altai region near Siberia. Given the winter cold there I'd readily agree, though I probably pay more for heating of home then their entire village

Hi Dan,

Happy birthday, 53 was a good year !!

I see you relate 64 to 64-bit computing, but I was thinking more about Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Once, 64 was supposed to be old !


John

Thanks John, and yes, if bitness and age are related I wish all to see 128bit compilers!

Thanks John. I remember and like this song for a long time, before being 32 and probably 16, but looked at its lyrics only today Smile. I had of course a clue what was this song about but not exactly.

Just realized one more interesting coincidence: I wrote the first code which required 64bit memory addressing when turned 32. Tried it on VAX machines and then on Digital Fortran and MS Fortran on PC and they did not even create the EXE file because 1-4 MB RAM meant quite an opulence at that time. And the only compiler which finally ran lately was Salford FTN77 because it made tiny EXE files no matter what declare. Others required the allocation of hundreds of MB or GB of RAM in advance of run. Why FTN77 did not crash when run I have no clue. Devilry again. So sometimes some bug or devilry helps Smile
