Hi guys,

Reading a thread regarding manually relocating RIP-relative addresses made me think of the old story of Mel, programmer extraordinaire, and his statement about "optimizing assemblers" : "You never know where its going to put things, so you'd have to use separate constants."

If you've never read it, it's definitely worth a read.

Cheers,
JD
