Flat universe == Infinite Universe?

I read with great interest the recent findings that support a "flat"
universe. I am not qualified to understand what that finding means, and my
interest was in whether these findings support the possiblility that the
universe may be infinite, infinite in the sense that mankind or its
descendants could live on here in eternity.

Some Physics-types Usenet posters discussing this on various Usenet groups
seem to think that a flat universe means an infinite universe.

Anyone here have any thoughts on this?
