48 Spaces

asian memory Warning: It will be a little techical here ;) – but maybe just ignore the details, you still can get what’s odd here, so in case of doubt just read the bold print…:

From the SMBios/DMI info for memory modules that are supposed to be set by the BIOS, ideally taking the info from the modules’ SPD EEPROMs:

Manufacturer: 48spaces
Part no.: 312345678901234567890123456789012345
Serial no.: 31234567

And the same for all four slot info items. How did that go, did someone say to his colleague programmer: “Nobody cares about these fields anyway, just write 48 spaces into them”?
aargh, another one of these bugs! ;)

    So ganz ist das noch nicht zu mir durchgedrungen, aber ich erschrecke jedes Mal (ja, JEDES Mal) über dieses Kriechvieh. Auch wenn du es geschenkt bekommen hast, bitte nicht so übertreiben! Mein armes Herz macht das nicht mit :cry:
