From: xx004@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Atari SIG) Subject: GEnie: Direct from Glendale RTC (Sep.19,1993) Date: Sun Feb 20 00:25:27 1994 :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :: Volume 2 - Issue 16 ATARI EXPLORER ONLINE 19 September 1993 :: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ||| GEnie's Direct From Glendale RTC ||| Captured and Edited by: Travis Guy / | \ Courtesy: GEnie ------------------------------------------------------------------ <[Host] ST.LOU> Our special guests tonight are Glendale organizer - John King Tarpinian, Z*NET News - Ron Kovacs and Director of Communications for Atari Corp. - Bob Brodie! Gentlemen, thank you for taking time from this busy day to bring us all the latest news from Glendale. I understand that you are typing at us from the GEnie booth, staffed by a half dozen GEnie sysops. I am sure they are just as happy to be off their feet while they watch you do some work <grin>. We'll ask the sysops for comments later.... I suspect one of you will be doing the typing :-) May we begin with some general comments about the day so far? King, Ron and Bob... GA <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> The show has drawn over 800 people so far, the morning was a very busy time for us. Atari is up on the stage as always, showing the Falcon, and trying to get a slideshow of Jaguar Targas to run with limited success so far. There has been a lot of excitement and interest in the Jaguar, with a number of people expressing interest in becoming developers. We had a developer conference last night at the Red Lion which went very well, and actually lasted much longer than we had expected it to. <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Questions, go ahead! :) <[Host] ST.LOU> OK Bob... <[Host] ST.LOU> S.Chapman is first. <S.CHAPMAN> what are the prices on the lynx at the show... the good guys! have it for 49$..GA. <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> I'll have to check, I haven't had a chance to shop yet! :) The supply of Lynxes that TCN brought to the show is already sold out <[Host] ST.LOU> any more? <S.CHAPMAN> no <[Host] ST.LOU> Thanks. Now we have Jaguar Jim. GA Jag Jim. <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> CIS lag, Jim? :) <[Host] ST.LOU> Hello Jim? Everything OK? <[JAGUARJIM] J.THORNHILL> i WOULD lik to know when the much touted 3rd party list will be available? What part of next week? Before or after Wednesday and also will thes be true independent third parties or is Atari going to just Licnese titles and do the programming themselves? <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Jim, much touted???? We'll make the release next week, I will not, while out of the office be held to a specific date. This is indeed a list of true 3rd party developers. We are not doing the programming ourselves. <[Host] ST.LOU> Followup Jag? <[JAGUARJIM] J.THORNHILL> Well that wasn't the right word I guessno <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> NEXT <[Host] ST.LOU> Hehehe... OK, John Brenner from Quebec! <[John B.] J.BRENNER1> Hi Bob, did you say you were having trouble running a slide show on the Falcon! Isn't that a little sad considering Atari has been claiming for months that the Falcon is the ultimate MultiMedia machine? has Atari put the Falcon on the back burner for now <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Well John, I'd say it is more an indictment of my own lack of skills. I have been so busy doing other things that I have not had enough time to properly set this up in advance. The simple fact is that we are so darn busy trying to get peoples questions answered here, that I haven't been allowed to really focus on the project. I'm delegating that task to Mike Fulton, who is running True Paint to do it, rather than the GEMVIEW slide show that I was attempting to do it with. And no, we have not placed the Falcon on the back burner. ga <[Host] ST.LOU> JB? <[John B.] J.BRENNER1> There is only one Falcon in Montreal. How many dealers are there supposed to be.Would you have any idea offhand? 3 or 10 ? <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> How ever many the market might bear. that is a question that would be much better suited for our rep in Montreal to answer, Kaysound. ga <[Host] ST.LOU> Folks, hang around for the door prize.... Photo Show and It's All Relative from It's All Relative... courtesy of Greg Kopchak. We'll do it soon. Next is Jonesy! <[Jonesy] M.JONES52> Any noticeable numbers of non-Atarians about,expressing interest in current and new stuff? ga <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Not really. There have been some new faces that are asking about the Jaguar, but most of the crowd is very familiar to me. <[Host] ST.LOU> Now we have DaveFreeland <[David] D.FREELAND> I noticed in the Atari Compendium PR that it is up-to-date as of TOS 5.0. Is this a typo? If not, can you discuss TOS 5.0?? <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> No, it is not a typo. There is another version of TOS that is already in developer release is documented in the compendium. <[Host] ST.LOU> Followup Dave? <[David] D.FREELAND> What is Atari currently doing to promote the Falcon? <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> David, we're working with a number of 3rd party people to come up with asome products that will give people a reason to select the Falcon over another computer. Right now, we're excited that we've gotten a chance to look at Cubase Audio for the Falcon... which will raise the stakes in the music software to a new level and allow musicians with the Falcon to do things that are simply not possible on any other platform. <[Host] ST.LOU> Next we have Dave Smith <[Dave] D.SMITH200> Bob, TT production has been a matter of concern. What's the status *and* are there plans to keep the TT upgradeable to future technology. If not, would there be a trade up? GA :) <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Dave, we are committed to returning the TT to production, and it's my belief that production has already begun...but it will be the TT...not a different machine. And btw....isn't anyone going to ask anything about the show????? <[Host] ST.LOU> Dave? Another? <[Dave] D.SMITH200> No More question, thanks! ga <[Host] ST.LOU> OK. Ed Baiz. <[Ed] E.BAIZ> What stores in SanFran are going to sell the Jag? What is the overall impression of the people who attended the show? GA <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> We're in the process of setting up the Jaguar distribution now, Ed. I would expect to see it in Toys R Us, Electronic Boutique, and all the other major entertainment retailers. The people that are attending the show are anxious to see the Jaguar, most seem pleased at the presence of a terrific issue of AtariUser Magazine, and the impressive group of developers. <[Host] ST.LOU> Ed, do you have another question? <[Ed] E.BAIZ> no <[Host] ST.LOU> Thanks Ed. <[Host] ST.LOU> Bob, please tell us who is in the booth with you. Maybe questions can be asked of them... <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Ron Kovacs, John Nagy, Mike Allen, and all the rest just ran! <[Host] ST.LOU> Haha <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> :) :) <[Host] ST.LOU> May I ask John about the next AtariUser? When can we expect to see it. We all miss it. <[John Nagy] PRESS-13> go for it... this is john <[Host] ST.LOU> Oooooh... /nam too! <[John Nagy] PRESS-13> We have released the October issue TODAY here at Glendale <[Host] ST.LOU> Hurray... and welcome back! <[John Nagy] PRESS-13> and will ship to all subscribers and groups next Tuesday! <[Host] ST.LOU> What articles are in your resurrection issue? :-) <[John Nagy] PRESS-13> It has a COLOR spread on the Jaguar... and is 100% done with Calamus SL. We have 6 pages of NEWS... We have a lot of Falcon news and such.... A GREAT article on digital audio on the Falcon030... A lynx BEST-OF review... and more. And a SPECIAL $5 Mini-Subscription offer for 3 issues for the faint of heart who are scared to spend on subscritions in this market. AtariUser is BACK. And thanks for all the fish! <[Host] ST.LOU> Thanks John. Hang around in case we have a question for you. Now I would like to do the prize thing..... for all paying customers... no free flags allowed :-) <[John Nagy] PRESS-13> ga. <[Host] ST.LOU> OK folks... I will ask the question and you type in the answer. Wait until you see Room in Talk-Mode before hitting RETURN <[Host] ST.LOU> What is the location of the Glendale Show? <[Host] ST.LOU> 30 seconds ** <[Host] ST.LOU> Room is now in the talk mode. <S.CHAPMAN> glendale <[Ed] E.BAIZ> glendale, california <[Dave] D.SHORR> Glendale Civic Auditorium <[John B.] J.BRENNER1> California, Lions hotel <[Bondservant] K.RICHARD2> glendale ca <L.HINSLEY> GLENDALE!!! RED LION INN.. <[Baaad Dot!] DABRUMLEVE> Glendale! <B.BENCIVENGA> glendale civic center. <[Glendale Sho] PRESS-13> Who is buried in Grant's Tomb? <[David] D.FREELAND> Glendale, CA <H.SAKAI> glendale <[Chris] C.CASSADAY> Glendale Civic Auditorium <[Baaad Dot!] DABRUMLEVE> Gosh, Stargazer, that's not right. <L.HINSLEY> WELL... :) <[Dave] D.SMITH200> Right now? Genie! ** <[Host] ST.LOU> Room is now listen-only. <[Host] ST.LOU> I see two winners.... the answer is GLendale Civic Auditorium. Dave Shorr and Chriss Cassaday.... Congrats <[Host] ST.LOU> Dave has first choice... It's All Relative or Photo Show? <[Dave] D.SHORR> I'd like Photo Show; thanks! <[Host] ST.LOU> OK Dave. Chris..... you get It's All Relative. Thanks to Greg Kopchak for providing tonight's prizes. Winners please send your mailing address to ST.LOU after this conference. Back to our conference. <[Glendale Sho] PRESS-13> A: Cary Grant. <[Host] ST.LOU> King... :-) <[Glendale Sho] PRESS-13> King is out, this still JOhn Nagy <[Host] ST.LOU> Ed from AEO was next... OK Nagy... sounds like a "King Thing" :-) <[Glendale Sho] PRESS-13> We've given a couple thousand back copies of AU away today! <[Host] ST.LOU> Everyone say thank you? <[Glendale Sho] PRESS-13> And a Glendale first, there are NO buttons referring to a certain online magazine.... <[Ed] AEO.5> How many games for the Jaguar will be released this fall in SF and NY and how many next year for the worldwide release? Thanks. <[Glendale Sho] PRESS-13> Looking for bob for this..... hold <[Host] ST.LOU> I have just been told that Photo Show is a Falcon only program... Dave, do you have your Falcon yet? <[Dave] D.SHORR> Nope, but the BCS Resource Center now has one. Thanks Bob! <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Hi Ed, there will be a single title bundled with the machine... and that title hasn't been set yet. I expect there to be about 5 titles at the time of the rollout. After that, there will be a number of other titles, depending on who the developer is, it is hard for me to project the actual dates that they will be available. Right now, we've got about 10 titles in the works on the Sunnyvale front. <[Host] ST.LOU> Bob... I am told a late breaking story in ST Report says the Jaguar may not be ready for Christmas. <[Host] ST.LOU> Can you shed some light on this? <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Lou, I'm surprised that anyone believes anything that is written in that publication any longer. He really has no sources in Sunnyvale at all. It's probably another typical Str word game in that it will not be available anywhere except New York and San Francisco. <[Host] ST.LOU> Hmmmph... another good story bites the dust :-) <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Is it true that he wrote that from the Betty Ford Clinic? <[Host] ST.LOU> Are you permitted to name the 10 titles under production for the Jaguar? <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> I don't have my list in front of me, but I'll try to get most of them for you Lou... <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Cybermorph, Crescent Galaxy, Tiny Toon Adventures, Kasumi Ninja, Raiden, Club Drive, Checkered Flag, Alien vs Predators, Evolution: Dino Dudes, <[Host] ST.LOU> Good re-member-y, Bob! <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Tempest 2000. Thanks....that's the list! :) <[Host] ST.LOU> Next we have Steve Kiepe, Editor of Current Notes! <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> So he wasn't at the clinic? <[Steve@CNOTES] S.KIEPE> Bob, are the developers/dealers at the show happy with the turnout thus far and second, Bill Rehbock once stated that the Falcon was meant for the HOME market. It appears that Atari/3rd party developers are focused "primarily" on music applications. Is this primarily a survival response or would you think we've pretty much seen a move toward a niche market? In other words, how do you think we can spread this out! GA <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Hello Steve, nice to see you! I have been so busy myself, I haven't had a chance to gauge that. The crowd of 800+ isn't as good as we had hoped for, but it appears to be a buying crowd. Re the second question, we have always found that while we might have a purpose in mind for our machines, the developers will often come up with a product that will capture a particular market. Music has always been an important part of our market, and the Falcon's capabilities are very impressive in that arena. <[Host] ST.LOU> Bob, Nathan posted from Glendale at 12:30 your time... has he been swamped since then? :-) <[Host] ST.LOU> Steve, followup? <[Steve@CNOTES] S.KIEPE> Good to hear that money is changing hands! Are the remaining developers "enthusiastic" or more cautious in your opinion. GA <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Yes, he has. Steve, I'll know more tomorrow, I really have been busy myself, and haven't had a chance to hobnob the way I would like to. For example, Mid Cities is doing one of their promotion announcements right now...they have set up a huge mural of an island, complete with a VOLCANO, spewing smoke out of the top, and when the volcano erupts, the have sound affects so the floor vibrates....really amazing. Z*Net News Service will be uploading pictures of this later on tonight. ga <[Host] ST.LOU> I will ask more after the paying customers get their questions in. Next is Chris Cassaday... a prize winner. Welcome back, Chris... <[Chris] C.CASSADAY> John Nagy - Is that *really* you in that CI$ ad? Bob Brodie - (sorry to be off topic) Is TOS 5.0 a machine specific upgrade? (Falcon or TT?) Or is it for a future machine? What's in it? AES 4.1? <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> Chris, John has stepped away from the machine right now... <[Host] ST.LOU> Chris, I was wondering too :-) John Nagy is much better tanned :-) <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> What's the ad you're talking about? <[Host] ST.LOU> CIS has a TV ad with a John Nagy giving his endorsement <[Chris] C.CASSADAY> what Lou said... <[Host] ST.LOU> Now, answer Chris' question :-) <[Chris] C.CASSADAY> poke - prod <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> No, John says that he doesn't have enough time to be on CIs, So it wouldn't be appropriate for him to endorse the Atari Forums on cis. <[Host] ST.LOU> Beside, THAT John Nagy was not carrying a copy of AtariUser :-) <[Host] ST.LOU> Bob, please read Chris' question about TOS and AES <[Chris] C.CASSADAY> I take it you can not comment on TOS 5.0? If not, that's fine. I'me just curious... <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> The version of TOS he's enquiring about is a beta version that is current restricted to developers only. I'd really prefer not to comment until it's done. Sorry Chris! <[Host] ST.LOU> Patience... big crowds down there :-) <[Chris] C.CASSADAY> very well, Thanks! Say thanks to Greg Kopchak for me! <[Host] ST.LOU> Then we have John Brenner again. <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> will do <[Host] ST.LOU> GA JB <[John B.] J.BRENNER1> Are there many hardware manufacturers present. Like Fastech or JRI ? Is anyone showing upgrade hardware for older machines as well as memory boards and what not for Falcons? GA <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> ICD is showing AdSpeed for $99, and good prices on their Super Link Pro, and Pro Software. Chro_Magic is here selling their hardware, COMPO is showing Falcon Speed and the Screenblast er, and of course, Migraph is showing their ColorBurst hand scanner for the Falcon...Nagy says it is really, really hot! Wizztronic is showing the Cartmaster, as well as another memory upgrade board for the Falcon. In The Computer Network Booth, DMC is showing Calamus SL, using an incredible CYREL Sunrise Card. Without a doubt, the finest images I have ever seen.... except in the Gribnif booth...<grin> Crazy Dots is there. :) ga <[Host] ST.LOU> Is Orange County near you? Bob. Here is B.BENCIVENGA.... <B.BENCIVENGA> Never mind you just answered my question? about new products etc... <[Host] ST.LOU> Ok... on to S.chapman <S.CHAPMAN> are voice mail products being shown at the show , second, what are the different MIDI products being shown and by who. <[Host] ST.LOU> Did I miss anyone? The queue is now empty.... Just /rai again if I missed you or you have a question now <[Bob Brodie] PRESS-13> I haven't seen any voice mail products. There was a private showing of Cubase Audio for Falcon, but that was done off sight. Barefoot is going to be releasing a new product soon, and Compo is showing MusiCOMM. <[Host] ST.LOU> Bob.... I understand that congrats are in order to Jonesy who is the new LiveWire writer for us Way to go, Jonesy! <[Host] ST.LOU> You mentioned CyReL.... <[Ron Kovacs] PRESS-13> Hi gang... <[Host] ST.LOU> I have Ralf from Cybercube who has an announcement <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> First, congrats to your nice show! <[Ron Kovacs] PRESS-13> go ahead! <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> Seems that you got a nice crowd down there! <[Host] ST.LOU> What's the scoop, Ralf? <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> We are having a special on the CyReL True Color cards... They have been reduced to US $999 for the show We are also announcing a couple of new products, like a TT Accelerator and a 128 MB TT RAM expansion board! <[Host] ST.LOU> THanks, Ralf... sounds like a can not resist I should also mention that Dorothy Brumleve President of the IAAD is retiring from the Live Wire job after years of service Many thanks to Dot! <[Host] ST.LOU> Steve Kiepe is back... <[Steve@CNOTES] S.KIEPE> Are significant numbers of Falcons (for sale) in evidence at the show and how does the sales response appear to be (thus far)? ga <[Host] ST.LOU> I just got a /send that anyone can take advantage of the Glendale special on the CyReL cards... maybe someone can find Nathan to tell us how.... <[Nathan] PRESS-13> There are good stacks of Falcons at both Mid-Cities and TCN At least there was good stacks, They have been depleted. :-) ga <[Host] ST.LOU> Thanks, Nathan. How about info on the CyReL deal? <[Steve@CNOTES] S.KIEPE> I picked a heck of a year to be away from Southern California. OH WELL, back in 94! Thanks! ga <[Nathan] PRESS-13> On the CyReL cards, Cybercubes special will be honored throughout North America for the days of this show, fair is fair so those that couldn't make it can still take advantage of a one time above and beyond special. Thanks for asking. ga <[Host] ST.LOU> OK... Dave Freeland is last in line <[David] D.FREELAND> Bob, in one of your previous conefrences, you mentioned that there would be an 1-800 number to order Speedo fonts with. Do you have it? <[Host] ST.LOU> Ooops <[Nathan] PRESS-13> I believe that Bill Rehbock mentioned that. Please check in the Bitstream RT as it may be posted there. ga <[David] D.FREELAND> Thanks. <[Host] ST.LOU> Nathan... Dorothy has a few words for us <[Nathan] PRESS-13> Hi Dorothy. <DABRUMLEVE> I am very pleased to announce that Mark Jones, our beloved Jonesy, has agreed to relieve me of my LiveWire columnist duties. I have every confidence that Jonesy will do one hell of a good job for Atari users here on GEnie. <[Nathan] PRESS-13> "beloved"? ;-) Congrats Jonesy! <DABRUMLEVE> I'm also missing this show just terribly. <[Host] ST.LOU> Go Jonesy! Hail Dot! :-) <DABRUMLEVE> I hope and trust everyone is having one terrific time! Smoke 'em out! ;-) <[Nathan] PRESS-13> Wish you were here Dorothy! <DABRUMLEVE> Me, too, Nathan. <[Nathan] PRESS-13> Wish Darlah was here more! ;-) <[Host] ST.LOU> Is it true you went outside to have a commemorative smoke, Dorothy? :-) <DABRUMLEVE> hehehhehe <[Host] ST.LOU> Nathan... is my buddy Mike Allen around? <[Nathan] PRESS-13> Not at this second Lou. He's raoming the aisles. <[Host] ST.LOU> Ah... he was hot to go to the dev con... can you give some impressions? <[Nathan] PRESS-13> The show winds up at 6:00 pm today so Mike's taking a brouse. The Dev Conference was mainly handled by Mike Fulton, Eric Smith and Scott Sanders talking about his new Compendium. It appeared to be quite well received. There was a solid turnout and everyone apeared pleased with the discussion on Mint, Multi-TOS etc.. ga <[Host] ST.LOU> What wasthe reaction among the non-devs? <[Nathan] PRESS-13> I didn't take a poll Lou, sorry. ;-) <[Host] ST.LOU> Nathan... I would like some sense of highlights... what impressed you the most? Ask the others to join in... you can type :-) <[Nathan] PRESS-13> Lou, Mike's back. He's taking over the keyboard. <[Mike] PRESS-13> Now what? <[Host] ST.LOU> Mike... what are the highlights in your opinion? <What did you buy?> :-) <[Mike] PRESS-13> Sorry - lou - I spent LOTS of money - Saw lots of good stuff. <[Host] ST.LOU> Be our eyes, Mike... <[Mike] PRESS-13> Compenduim is neat. Warp 9 3.8 is Falcon compatible. Lots of Extendo-Save stuff with W9 3.8. I got DevPac3, DataLite2, Genevea. <[Host] ST.LOU> Mike.... JB asked me to ask about the Lexicor table... How was it? Lots of animations? How about the cards? <[Mike] PRESS-13> Hmmm - ? Back behind the bathroom, I believe. <[Host] ST.LOU> Did you get to see it? <[Mike] PRESS-13> I haven't really had the time to look a cards - the crowds ... around the booths Gribnif abnd DMC booths were preety deep. I thought there was going to be some kind of display comparing the Lexicor and DMC cards... and CrazyDotsII <[Mike] PRESS-13> Lou - I haven't seen any Lexicor cards here - but I haven't . . . had the time to look too hard. <[Host] ST.LOU> Thanks, Mike... anyone else want to share some thoughts with us? <[Mike] PRESS-13> I have been abandoned! Just me at the keyboard and I am getting hungry! <[Host] ST.LOU> Hehehe... well how about sharing your first experience in the GEnie booth How did the demos go today?? Did Sandy use Aladdin <g,d,r> <[Mike] PRESS-13> Besides, they left me in Flash, which I've never SEEN before! <[Host] ST.LOU> Here, take my Aladdin.....<reach> <[Mike] PRESS-13> Well, except for the fact the Sandy threw me off the on-line ... <[Host] ST.LOU> You mean they left the rookie while they went shopping? Shame... <[Mike] PRESS-13> machine before I could get an "Update Topic" done on . . . aladdin (for the demo machine) things weren weren't too bad. Nathan's disks had the whole starter kit . . . ZIPped, which defeated the purpose! I'm glad I brought CodeCopy! We've been remaking the Stater Kits on the fly! This is the last time we let Nathan make the starter kits <g>! <[Host] ST.LOU> Is there a lot of interest in GEnie, Mike? What kinds of questions have you had? <[Mike] PRESS-13> I am, however, going deaf. MidCities has a volcano that goes off (loudly) every so often to announce their specials! I have seen LOTS of Falcons go out the door! TCN is selling 4/80's $1199! <[Host] ST.LOU> WOW!!! With a free Jaguar? :-) Does anyone have the 14/80? <[Mike] PRESS-13> We've distributed about 30 copies of the starter kit. Haven't seen any 14/80s. The Gizmo board looks real nice and <[Host] ST.LOU> Did you sell modems with them? :-) <[Mike] PRESS-13> there are several folks selling Compo Falcon Screen enhancer (I forgot the name!) <[Host] ST.LOU> ScreenBlaster! rhymes with volcane <grin> volcane=volcano <[Mike] PRESS-13> We all miss Dot and have had several smokes for her! <[Host] ST.LOU> Thanks for the sights Mike.... going to talk-mode //// Editor's note: Moments later, this converstion occurred! <[Dave] D.SMITH200> Ralf, could you give some details on the TT accelerator? <[Gregg] AEO.7> TT accelerator????? yes.... TALK!!!! <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> The CyReL CaTTamaran is a small module for the TT and allows you to run your TT either in 32, 36, 38, 40 and 45 !!! MHz. <[Host] ST.LOU> Where do you pay... I want one NOW!!!! <[Dave] D.SMITH200> Ralf, is it an 040??? <[Hai-Keeba!] AEO.MAG> Ralf, do you have a press release for the accelerator? <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> The price will be US $99! No CPUs to replace, no costly caches! <[Host] ST.LOU> I want TWO of them... right now. I'm driving over, Ralf.....<vroooom> <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> We have not yet completed the beta testing. So there is no PR as of yet but there will be! <[Host] ST.LOU> Plug and play? <[Gregg] AEO.7> Sounds GOOD! any more details? need a beta tester? <[Host] ST.LOU> I will pay to beta test! <[Hai-Keeba!] AEO.MAG> Cool. Congrats! (me too?) <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> It's a really small module. Some SOLDERING is required. Sorry, but this kind of thing can't just be installed like a graphics card. *grin* <[Host] ST.LOU> Nice name, BTW. <[Dave] D.SMITH200> I'll Beta test on lots of Graphics apps... <[Host] ST.LOU> I can vouch for Dave Smith... <[Hai-Keeba!] AEO.MAG> Ehhhh, I'd burn a hole in my TT. :-( <[Gregg] AEO.7> Hey, I know someone that'll put it through it's paces with DynaCADD and Calamus. <[Host] ST.LOU> Where does it connect? Can you say... <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> Yep, we thought that you get a lot more speed with a CaTTamaran. *grin* <[Dave] D.SMITH200> Thanks Lou!! <[Michael] AEO.4> How in the world does it work without a replacement CPU? <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> We have invented something... cannot elaborate too much, but it's based on our CyReL XtraClock technology. So you get a lot more kick out of your TT than you might have thought possible. <[Ralf] CYBERCUBE> OK, for more details, please wait for the PR!
