I just had to post a reply to this and let John know that I thoroughly enjoyed

Since it seems I am a permanent lurker in my own right, I will let you all
know that I am proudly reading my advanced copy of Pattern Recognition by
William Gibson, autographed by the same. I will post my thoughts on this if
it is wished upon completion.
What CPUs best define you?
