Yes, thanks for removing the blob, Mr. Minnich.
I wanted to say it before but didn't want to continue the thread you asked to end.
So I just hiked here.

Excuse me for not participating. I don't see how supporting so restricted
hardware as Mr Georgi explained (thanks for the explanation) can be
desirable. He's right those chips are not for me, but I being me I don't
find myself so extraordinary and think they're not for anyone (a computer 
that is able to check public key signatures before it is able to access its own
RAM is not a computer, it's a trap), so my best help here will be getting myself 
out of the way. Less severe cases are not interesting enough for me either, 
so I'm sure you'll welcome my silence.
