quat is in use in modern English:
Slang for Quarter usually used in drug circles.
'Yo, you got a quat fo' tree five?'
Translation: "Pardon me, but do you still have a Quarter of (name your favorite drug here) for three hundred and fifty dollars?""
Quat is the short therm of Quaternary what means "consisting of four parts" source:
"Quaternary ammonium cations, also known as quats" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quaternary_ammonium_cation
This means there is a word "quat" in the English language related to the number four!
Now check my usage of the word:
Quat-core is the short version of: Quaternary-core --> consisting of four parts-core
And you can translate the instructions in another format.
Because the vector connections are linearly linked.
You mix up the format with the vector processing them self but you can translate the format and do the vector processing with the same result.
This translation work drain your performance to 70%....
Now who looks more stupid ? Counted on the facts, you look stupid.
