I've been thinking about this sentences, and I think I now know what you

I think you mean that if I had two cards in the _same computer_ then they
both would see that same global data, while, if having that data inside
local_info each of those cards, in the same computer, would have their
separate data. Am I right? Somehow this makes sense to me.

My other questions remain though, even if I think now I understood what
you were trying to tell me in the first place.
