I couldn't agree more! Even back in ye Olden days it was all about processors and software, nary a thought for the hard work of the memory team. Now, keep in mind that memory is one of the relatively less-expensive members of the computer line-up and you start to sense some of the reasons for a lack of proper respect, but still I heed your battle cry! Onward memory!
