Just a mo . . . . . I don't get this. There are no big boobs here at all. 0xB16B00B5 = 0. 0xanything is 0, right? But then I'm a numbernik too.

"Microsoft has swiftly fixed an embarrassing gaffe which saw a chunk of code labelled 'big boobs'.
The hexadecimal string 0xB16B00B5 was discovered lurking in code that helps a Microsoft program work with Linux open source software.
The controversial string came to light on a mailing list for developers who oversee the core, or kernel, of Linux.
The string was used every time the Microsoft program ran a virtual version of Linux."
