Do you think I did not try? 8)8) Not one and even not two nights.
The results were ridiculous. Now I understand that writing
true vmm is not typewriter's job and feel obliged to remind
about this hole from time to time in hope that someone
will find time to study existing algorithms, then think,
and only then write code for half of night (if he types enough fastly 8)8))
