RIP Lester. You're really going to be missed around here.
Condolences to his family and also to the wider El Reg family.

Big fan as well of 1Password, very handy on both OS X and iOS I've found.
Some of my friends boggle at the idea of paying £7 for an iOS app. This still goes to show how passwords and security in general is considered by the general public who aren't in IT. I try to use physical security analogies to get the point across.
Unfortunately I've still had a few friends who have had ebay/forums/email/other hacked and then come back to may saying "Umm... what was that app you said I should use?"
Can address over that. 64-bit chips can do 64EiB - Exbibytes - so 1024 PiB / 1048576TiB. Theory and practical the address limit allows. Physically possible? That's another matter at the moment.
RAM can run pretty hot, servers with ASHRAE 3 compliance for instance will happily sit and run with all day with an intake of 45 degrees celcius.
Got to think, it's not just datacentres that servers sit in, but some quite enclosed / passively cooled spaces for telecoms industries or such.
Though yeah, if you thought standard DIMMs ran hot you should see the monster cooling reqs for flashDIMMs. Maybe even these 128GiB sticks will have some impressive heatsinks around them like some LRDIMMs do.
