What frosts my cake was that I suggested to Doug Paffel and Steve Chen that we SERIOUSLY should look into parallel processing with the i386 platform I was playing with in my office. I told them both that THIS ( a poster of the internal die of the i386 ) was our competition.

As for the worlds fastest electric car, I was witness to and helped work on the worlds fastest electric bike ( the " KillaCycle " ) which used a revolutionary energy cell that could release all its energy in milliseconds. We burned out motor speed controllers and made the bike spectacularly hard to handle with the Bolder TMF cells...8-)...

I'm still a pioneer with all those arrows in my back though........

Anyone want a pioneer that has worked on the worlds fastest computers, worlds fastest microchips, worlds fastest bike, worlds fastest discharging energy cell and ( not so fast ) robots?
