Merced is a zombie

It is the living undead

We just took a quick glance at Intel's release about the quarter of a billion greenbacks it is pushing into its IA 64 platform and realised we were right, earlier this year. IA-64 is undead. Go to its web site to check it out. For the sake of our worldwide readers who don't know what this phrase "undead" means, we shall explain. The famous island of Haiti, populated as it is mostly by West Africans, has a native religion, mixed with Catholicism. The Tsumba is a West African phrase and unluckily for Haitian souls, the slaves brought by Western European countries including Portugal, Great Britain and Spain, found it a lucrative trade to ship said souls west. Tsumba means "the living undead" in one of the many native Nigerian languages. Oops. Western Europeans were being a tad shortsighted. It was ever thus... So thank gods for Abraham Lincoln. ®
