 please do try to avoid the use of the phrase "IP".  it implies that
you accept that information and intelligence can be owned and enslaved
(intellect+property -> information+ownership ->
intelligence+enslavement).  it says therefore that you endorse
slavery.  i don't believe for one minute that you believe that slavery
is acceptable in the 21st century, but the use of the phrase implies
that you do, and it is thus best avoided.

 yeah i just saw the one about VIA a few days ago, it's really good
news.  i didn't know about NVidia, that's quite funny.  they picked a
RISC core that could be adapted to compete with their own technology
