That'd be best. You could probably do plenty person to person interview cause of how big our network is.

POLL needed. YES.

But PLEASE keep the interviews on interesting technology issues/developments. And avoid marketing spin interviews about "our company this, our hardware that", etc.

Definitely, understanding the mind behind the hardware is always a plus, I would like to know why AMD releases the damed paper trail....don't they know conservationism is key to our future and hardware is key to our dam present.....sorry about the release of thought, it has been a while since I posted and the wife is due home from work, I have been a housebitch for a month and I can't stand it anymore, Her hours need to change....like right now....:toast:

Great idea W1zzard, a thought is a terrible thing to waste.
