Yeah, tell me about it. I never realized what an awful state CT really is. I go to the University of Hartford. Awful just like the state. I'm thinking of transfering, not really sure to where though. But yeah, I'm not the biggest fan of Connecticut either.

I just read this thread for the first time.

Wow, some names I had forgotten about. One I did not see mentioned is Morphious, the poster of the dual core G5 PDF. I guess the IBM guys are gone since the switch to Intel. Another IBM guy from Florida posted too. My memory is going.

I'd like to hear more about the split. I have posted both here and in AN and notice familiar user names over there. Haven't been there for years now. What exactly caused the split? I must not have been following that particular thread.

I miss posts by Amorph, Programmer, and several others who were always quite informative. My only claim to fame is spotting IBM's presentation of a chip, at the Semiconductor Forum, which then became the G5. I posting a link and immediately someone said, "That's it." I should dig that old post up when I have nothing else to do.

The Cell processor was fun too, but all that is gone now that we are in Intel land and those horrible names, which are impossible to remember. Since I live almost next door to Intel here, I should be used to them by now.

I had no idea about any 'nova' split.

My account was banned for some reason at nova and it says I can never come back


I must have said something bad those many years ago!

I love how this thread never dies. I also love reading it. This story of the split fascinates me. I wish I would have been around when it happened.

No. You don't need a life. You've survived this long w/o one!

Replying to a 6 month old post? ... and at the same time commenting on getting a life?
How appropriate
