That was really difficult. Someone intimately familiar with hardware (especially CPUs and chipsets), past and present, would do better.

Allow us to fold our arms and let out a self-satisfied sniff while slowly nodding in your direction. You've almost done us proud, little one-almost. You still have much to learn, so don't get cocky.

26, but with the caveat of a lot of guessing. Maybe 15ish that I knew, and 5-6 more that I felt okay about. The rest? pure guesswork.

Though I should feel good that there were only 2, I think, that I had no idea what they were talking about.
