    Well... I think that your knowledge could become core business in every company, also in that you don't like to stay in. And then I think I'd prefer to work hundreds times in Nvidia or ATI and doing the same adding the passion that help to make your work better. I think that when YOU want to arrive early in the morning and stay late at the evening because you beleive in what the company make.. well.. this is work!

    I think I have shown my passion here... more than once. Did it take me somewhere? well, yes, kind of.. I do have something that majority thinks being non-existant, but did it make me more happy? did it really drive thru the revolution some of us saw coming? No, not by far. (to the second question, right answer would be shit happens. Too bad the lightning struck twice in the same spot in my case.)

    Nowadays it's more important to me have regular life with steady paycheck, instead of driving in the edge revolutionary stuff. Still this does not mean I wouldn't be respected at work. I still do revolutionary things, the scale is just quite different. If we make set of tools that drops sales team needed time from 2 months to just 1 week, I think we can talk about software that will revolutionalize contract cycles.

    oh... about something coming as core business... I don't see 3 men software development team driving thru such an excelent software that it could be sold outside. In company that core business is Pulp and Paper Factory Design and Development and having total workforce of 10000 persons.

    The reason I have an X1800XL AIW is because it's an AIW.

    Thank you, Beyond3D staff, for provding the icon I've wanted for these many years!

    Yes I know what you mean. Surely make a good life without following dreams of glory will be an option that everyone before or after will choice but for me I'd like so much nowdays to feel myself completed having a work like that.

    ...but still very live and kickin' as own subsidiary: http://www.bitboys.com

    When ATI releases it's next mobile chip/core that has SVG 1.2 Tiny hardware support, you will got your "Bitboys" hardware ;) , eventhough it's mostlikely not stated anywhere as a one. (And why should it? Stating stuff like that has no market value what so ever.) [size=-2]I might be quiet, but that does not mean I would be completely dropped out from watching this world.[/size]

    If only I lived in Santa Clara or Toronto... :roll:

    I swear I'd move on if I'd find this kind of work.

    Well, I didn't, but I do now.

    BTW, guys - speaking of logo, I think we need the "ATI Radeon Graphics" logo rather than the "ATI" logo! :p
