Greetings!  Great!  Congratulations!

It might also be noteworthy that GCL has seen some serious large image
production work since 2.6.x was released.  I believe researchers at UT
working with ACL2, (possibly in conjunction with coworkers at AMD),
have been using an >24GB ACL2/GCL image on an 8-way Itanium system --
over a billion cons cells.

Take care,
