wait 3 more days for it to become stable then buy it is an excellent stock even though this is time to short most stocks. I
think tommorow will be an up day., but then they will be selling again on thur. I think rmbs will have one more dip to 42 then it
will go again. anyone have any thoughts? It seems to me we are all getting along on this board. We all should help one another
with the best stock tips as you all know we are in this to make money. Some to spend some to save . Check the kwic board out a
guy has put a stock tip on it see what you all think. Give me some feedback. Crash if you are reading this I was practicing
doing a short on my fidelity account they don't have me set up to short I will just have to give them a wake up call with all the
money I have with them. It is not a retirement account either I pay hefty tax, you wait till I get a hold of them dogs I guess
they thought I was to dumb to notice. Also take a lookat the rose board see what you think about what they say on it it looks
interesting . Another tip is appc at 26 or 27 goes there every month like clock the only thing I am worried about it may be tied to the
tech. sector it really should not be sense it is back up power when electic is out I even have one on my computer so I have 20
min. in case there is a power outage. They also have industrial size and work alot with seimans and alot of other companys. Sell
at 30 31 can't figure out why it never pushes much past that. If anyone can tell me I would love to know . Another tip vtss but
can't tell you were to buy that one maybe one of you all could help out. Bye for now and Crash I am looking forward to the shorts.
Went to walmart today I can understand why that stock is doing so well. The darn place was busy in the middle of the after noon.
I think the outskirts of houston are getting crowded and I thought Texas had plenty of land I had to turn the AC on today and
my pool is already 70, electric co. should make money this year ? I guess I am yaking to much. Will sign out till morning .
Seems like the DDR SDRAM is moving slowly and so this would help the RMBS RDRAM be adopted as the memory standard w/tight spec's already in place....Am I reading this correctly? Comments, TIA!
RE>> What's next after PC/100? There are two schools of thought: Rambus and
the double-data-rate SDRAM, seen by many as a long shot. The DDR
specification is undergoing slow and tedious creation, with the negotiations
dealing with functions split along lines of competitive self-interest of various
vendors. Regardless of which approach is adopted, the system engineer is
guaranteed another round of related systems-design issues.
I have never been a Data Base Administrator. But as Chief of Computer Security for a rather significant organization I always found bookkeepers to be royal pains in the ass. Good talking to you, too.
Does anyone know what AMD is planning to do about their system bus? INTEL is planning the relaese of katmai (MMX2) with faster graphcs bus and RDRAM begining in 1999. This should be a compleing performance achievement, Does anyone know AMD's plans? Are they going to try to release the K7 on a DDR bus? I doubt SLDRAM will be available? What will they do? I have not seen this ? addressed anywhere on SI or here. RMBS community, please add your comments. Thanks.
What do you make of the "it is very challenging" remark? Do we really know what the target is by just having technical specs
so far? What will happen when this goes to trial silicon fab? Also, are you sold on the fact that others do not HAVE detailed
specs... or could it be that they are not "letting on" the fact that they have them? That they are not as open as R/I?? I am really
nervous about this near absolute confidence in Rambus as the only game. Don't get defensive as usual. I don't me you --- the former
old lady --- necessarily. I mean the Rambus followers as a whole seem overconfident.
My turn to get defensive -- Regrettably, I never had typing in prep school and all my clerical work was done for me -- for pay of course. So please excuse the multitude of typos that you will find. I think you have some insight --- even for a DB administrator. As CFO, I find security/controls personnel invaluable. Good talking to you.
Yes you read well, and mean well and I thank you for trying. Lo que me interesaba era ver si el aspecto tecnologico tenia sentido o no. Mais, apparenment, il faut attendre pour voir qu'est-ce ces salots vont choisir comme norme des elements electroniques.
I do not merely "claim" to be a retired computer guru; that is exactly what I am. That said, however, you
should know that anyone out of the business for more than a month or so is out of the business almost com-
pletely. My expertise goes back to RCA 301s, progresses up through IBM 360s, and finally -- for the last 17
years of my career -- into computer security. In the latter capacity I served more as an administrator than as
a "guru", but retained and used a reasonably detailed knowledge of the M204 data base management system. None of
my experience qualifies me as an expert on semiconductor design.
However, as luck would have it, I have over the years managed to master the English language to the extent that
I can pretty much understand what I read -- so long as it is written in that language. Fortunately, the
operable paragraphs of the referenced article meet that qualification. I quote them here:
"The tightening specs also raise a serious question for supporters of the DDR DRAM,
Popadak said. Intel and Rambus have produced a detailed, line-by-line specification for
the Direct Rambus memory interface that is just as comprehensive as the PC-100 spec.
`It is very challenging, but at least we know what the target is,` Popadak said.
"No such specification exists for DDR DRAM deviceds (sic), however. And without it,
system vendors may find it impossible to manufacture DDR-based systems using a
variety of DRAM vendors, core-logic vendors, and motherboard designs. At 100 MHz,
small differences in loading and timing would be even more critical to DDR than to
ordinary DRAM devices."
Without knowing what is meant by DDR DRAM or PC-100 it is nevertheless clear from these sentences that
the Rambus interface with Intel's future plan has been fully specified and that a similar specification
does not exist for other DRAM interfaces. IMHO, if the technical problems of the Intel design pre-
sent extremely difficult hurdles, this will create a major indirect threat to both Intel and Rambus.
If a large segment of the community is adversely "affected" by the demands of the new design, a major breech
will have been driven in the Intel monopoly, one that I feel certain will be exploited. On the other hand,
if the problem is not so tecnically difficult (we have only the writer's word for the fact that it is), then
the "effects" may be minimal.
For more than this you will need a genuine chipster.
Run this by Dixon -- he claims to be a retired computer guru and, undoubtedly, can opine intelligently using his technical expertise. In my non-technical way this is what I have believed all along: when interface/performance reality sets in, a number of players in the background will jump forward. Anyone who has a better deal will become the std and you watch INTC change partners in a heartbeat.
Don't mean to beat up on you because of your wrong word -- it's just one of my pet peeves.
