It is *fiction*. So just read it as if it is "magical", like Harry Potter. It's just like "well researched" in fiction means exactly the same as "well researched" in journalism: the facts aren't actually facts but could pass as facts to those who hasn't had a proper science education (which unfortunately includes a large part of the population and 99.5% of all politicians) Casper _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
