Thank you for jogging the memories, Martin. The other day I was trying to remember that period and who acquired whom... my product, WireScope, ended up under HP in 1998, soon to become Agilent, and our competitor, Fluke, is now under Borg. What's next?
@fanny, I get the impression you clicked "Start a Board" instead of "post message" as your comment has ended up on its own thread. "Post Message" posts a comment on the blog, and "reply" posts a reply to comeone else's comment. I've never seen any use for the "start a board" link, it seems to be mainly used by spammers.... present company excepted of course :-)
