    New version of YGrep

    The new version 7.02b of the YGrep Search Engine corrects a couple of minor bugs in the SGrep() family of routines (sometimes returning erroneous matches and match sizes).

    Registered users have been receiving the upgrade directly from me.

    Athlon replaces K7

    Athlon AMD did it! They gave the processor previously known as K7 a new name: Athlon. At the same time, they officially reveal performance figures. Impressive! Intel, having lost the performance blue-ribbon, is now preparing a price cut for their own processors... while AMD delivers to the PC manufacturers.
