Who thought putting 6 $10,000 rack mounted servers behind a netgear consumer grade router is a good idea?! #uni

@IceWolf was asking if medium graphics tablets are really so much better than small.
I happened to have an ancient small one hanging around, so I thought I'd do a quick scribble to test my assumptions.
As it turns out, it's a lot less annoying than I remember, enough that I got carried away with my "quick test" X3
Advice on learning: don't worry about how long it takes
> How long did it take you to learn _____?
> Wait, don’t answer that. It doesn’t matter.
> Beginners seem to ask this question when they are feeling daunted by the challenge before them. Maybe they are hoping for a helpful answer, but it seems like most answers will just be a jumping off point for feeling bad about their own progress.
> Everyone learns differently. They learn from different sources, at different paces. Suppose you ask this question and someone answers “one month”? Will you feel bad about yourself because you’ve been at it for six weeks? Suppose they say, “ten years”? Now what do you think?
> […trimmed out details in the full blog post…]
> My advice to beginners is: don’t compare your learning to other peoples’. Everyone learns differently, using different materials, at different speeds.

Why do 32bit computers only support 4gb of ram? I know everybody says it's because 2^32 is 4294967296, or 4GB. But by that logic, 16 bit computers should only support 64KB of ram. I thought that was supposed to be the limit of 8bit computers? Which by the same logic, would only be able to access 256 bytes of ram. Also, shouldn't that 4294967296 bytes be multiplied by the number of bytes wide the ram bus is? This would give a 32bit computer access to 17179869184 bytes of ram.
