Well, I took your suggestion to heart and mailed Larry, so I guess if he didn't know before, now he has no pretext anymore, apart from claiming it was the spam filter. ;)
Thanks for forwarding the message anyway. Doppelt hält sowieso besser. ;)
And yes, sorry for posting to PM discussions actually, I am glad it got moved, I first wrote it as a reply in the 8 long years thread, and then opted to write it separately, since it was OT as a reply too, kinda. Didn't really realize I had no move powers myself anymore, due to the XP changes...
