Oversimplification is for the foolish.  Like I said, you're not too bright.

You're showing very little understanding of system architecture here.  
My point regarding where the code was located had to do with a 
generalized statement regarding applications being at fault for issues 
and for them not being OS issues.  My point was that it's not always 
clear cut.

I was not trying to say that this case was an OS issue.  I was trying to 
say that the line is not always black and white.  I was also pointing 
out that none of us know because the only information we have to go on 
is third-hand and imprecise.  If you can predict conditions based on 
imprecise third-hand information, then what are you doing here?!?  Go 
solve the world's problems or something.  of course, you can't so you've 
decided to just flame people.

Please re-read my posts and think before you respond.

If, besides misreading my posts, you can find no argument with what I've 
said (which, you won't, because I'm right) then I'm willing to hear 
them.  Other than that, you're just wasting everyone's time by trying to 
railroad points that you don't understand.
