There's the reason ;-)

The code needs to get compiled where you get to the "ugly stuff".

Tell me, why are the asm coders complaining then? They more or less hate
the architechture, yet it's their living.

Uhmmmm... Ah! hexdump... 

In which case the result from a hexdump of my name:
echo remy | hexdump
6572 796d 000a

Let's do byteswap fur fun ;-)
7265 6d79 0a00

r= ascii 114 => binary 0111 0010 => hex 72
e= ascii 101 => binary 0110 0101 => hex 65
WOW! :-)
Ok, byteswap... still not logical (not before swapping again)
Aint this f*cked? Needing to swap before actual decoding?

Still retarted IMHO...

Can't stand having words putting in this way...

You know a arch without this?

I'll emmigrate ;-)
