Is the space pope reptilian?

              total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       2061108    1374032     687076          0     214380     484316
-/+ buffers/cache:     675336    1385772
Swap:            0          0          0

Guess I have no choice but to wait for those fixes, like everyone else.
