Hello! I've recently heard about bug in Pentium FDIV dividing procedure. That's horrible because we don't know what other bugs we can find in this processor. Is it true that Intel fixed the problem and is ready to replace Bug-Pentium with Bug-Free(?)-Pentium? And another question (I think it's for people from Wolfram...): Is there a software bug-fix for Mathematica running on Pentium machine? I ask this question because Mathworks are ready with such a bug-fix for their system MATLAB. Hoping of no-more-bugs-in-processors ( isn't Hope the Mother of Fools ??? :-)) ) Michal -- ______________________________________________________________________________ [ Michal Jarski ] [ c/o Andrzej K.Kraszewski ] [~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~] [ Warsaw Univ. of Technology, Institute of Environmental Engineering Systems ] [ Div. of Mathematics Applications _________________________________________] [ Nowowiejska 20 / ] [ Warsaw, Poland / e-mail: jarski at saturn.iis.pw.edu.pl ] [________________________________/___________________________________________]
