Who the heck are these guys?
Scott Cartier - skah_t@dragonshadow.com
Vitals I am XX years old (born in 1973 - you do the math) and graduated from Virginia Tech in 1995. I moved out to California when Intel hired me. I got fed up with the big corporate entity and left for VM Labs in June, 1998. I can't complain too much about Intel though as I did meet my lovely wife there. She was a circuit designer and I was a logic designer on Merced. She was smarter and got out a lot sooner than me. VM Labs began to really go downhill at the beginning of 2001. By the end of the year things got so bad I had to leave (there were two periods when we weren't getting paid). Now I'm at NVIDIA working as a software engineer in the Systems Engineering group in the MCP group.
