in reply to RFC: Abusing "virtual" memory

As I read this, a quote from days long gone keeps popping into my head...

"Cool - virtual memory! Now I can make a really big ramdisk!"

    Another quote came to my mind, from the beginnings of virtual memory days:
    "If it's there and you can see it - it's real.
    If it's not there and you can see it - it's virtual.
    If it's there and you can't see it - it's transparent.
    If it's not there and you can't see it - you erased it!"
    IBM poster explaining virtual memory (circa 1978)

    echo S 1 [ Y V U | perl -ane 'print reverse map { $_ = chr(ord($_)-1) } @F;'
