    Keith attributes quotes to me that I never made. This is exasperated by the digest format, I think.

    I made a perfectly sensible comment upon his baseball example- I related that a donkey named Hans could answer the same question.

    But Keith has decided to take his ball and go home. But then, perhaps he considers the memes in the donkey's brain to be the same as the memes in a boy's.

    As for what possible difference it could make with how something is stored, well, tell that to a librarian.
