I first thought it was kind of funny (thinking back to the Star Trek days), but then I realized it was in the <client_state.xml> file for a reason. Would this relate to running under a 32 bit vs a 64 bit system in Windows 10? Is it only in my file?

This question was included in another post but it may have been over looked.

Thank you Keith. Once again you're to my rescue from being a bit too curious. I sort of understood the answers, but that's okay. At least I know that "warp size 32" is a real thing, at least in the land of computers.
