Thanks John, try and get it downgraded to tropical storm. These computers will not all fit in the van.

BTW, your IP address is coming from ATI Headquarters, do you work for ATI?
bah, one comment turns into 2 turns into 3....

Hey, I know you have your own life and I wasn't trying to emphisize how you haven't been around. That's not the point at all. You've maintained this site all this time and we all have you to thank for that.

Now for what I was really trying to get at, for which that software rendering remark only served to trigger. It really does look (from my perspective) that when you make statements it's coming out of some nvidia media relations handbook. And with the site getting bigger and ever more successful and nvidia obviously poking around here, there's more on the table for you than say 5 years ago. I'll believe you if you tell me I'm wrong, but on the outside without all the facts it does seem that way.

hmm, looked up my ip. Wanted to ban me already? Yeah, I'm here doing sort of doing an internship. Part of my university program. It's cool in that I get to play with the latest stuff and see all the release info -was holding an eng. sample XT today. But I hope you give me enough credit and believe that this doesn't affect my objectivity too much.

OH!

I just had this great idea for an Elite Bastard's headline: "ATi employee makes trouble at leading nVidia site!"

I gotta go update the front-page, I'll be right back!

The Dig runs off with an absolutely insane look in his eyes and an ear-to-ear grin...

don't even think about it.

I would hardly consider this making trouble, and I've always called this place my home regardless of where I work.

I know. What? Just because I don't overuse smilies it means I'm being serious all the time?

So what's with this hurricane business? I haven't been paying attention to the weather.

Yeah, speaking of which, you have a family and all. How DO you manage to spend so much time around here? It's absolutely amazing I thought marriage destroyed any hope of having free time

It's been easy ever since a few weeks ago, both my children FINALLY started school full-time and I'm finding life a whole lot easier....before that it was in 5 minute sanity breaks and just typing about a bazillion words a minute. (I'm a pretty quick typist, I think most of us are. )

With school in session I actually get some time to THINK while I post and such, it's neat! My house is actually clean and I got the time to keep it clean, the family is doing great, and I'm actually getting ready to start a few projects for Elite Bastards that I never could before due to time restraints. (And a 3 & 6 year old that like to "help" Daddy play with his computers....but I shouldn't complain since the buggers are pretty bright with 'em. )

It's a good time to have some free time too. I've been burning the candle at both ends for about 5 years now and I don't mind the world slowing down a little one bit at all!
