Everyone participating on this board is likely to come to the same conclusion at
some point. If you want information on a company, on a given technology or
industry - look for a post on the topic from dataSlave. His elegant and thorough
analyses have graced the boards of ATHM, AWRE, PROX, UNPH and others
as well as this Board. He is unerringly polite and unfailingly courteous. His
thought train is meticulously articulated, and his conclusions spring from an ability
to look at reams of information and synthesize a coherent, understandable
position. In the words of Neil Stephenson (S.F. author extraordinaire) he is able
to "condense fact from the vapor of nuance". Thank you, dS.

Following are links to some of his notable contributions on this Board. Messages
are noted separately in chronological order by thread occurrence (for context),
rather than grouped by specific topic. Two or more numbers together indicate
portions of the same thread, and the link to the first one in the thread is noted.
