    Very interesting indeed. I am glad people like this exist. Without him and W1z and others like them we would all stuck running stock speeds.:(

    This is important, cuz is part of a new history.
    Technology evolution path are always uncertain, and the side boosters like W1z and Unwinder, make the developers (square mindeds) to rethough their products, cuz a second view can make them take another way.

    I am excited about this new aspect of TPU. Hopefully, continued interviews along with the recent published usage statistics will make more key members of the industry willing to submit to interview. I feel interviews like this are good for TPU, and the industry as a whole.

    One more thing, I would like to see an interview with W1z.
    It would be great to learn a little bit about our fearless leader :)

    Great interview. Always wanted to know how Alex gained his knowledge. Respect!
    Both Unwinder and W1zzard are geniuses.
