    im not sure yet... i feel quite burned out, havent really sent out my resume to a lot of people yet, i should have...
    so it will probably take a few weeks before i start something else, which is veeery fine by me actually, i can really use some time to relax and breathe, and life in taiwan is quite affordable

    id like to do something with laptops, maybe vgas or displays...
    and im still looking for a propper startup with enthusiastic people, thats what i thought cellshock and foxconn QuantumForce were, but then in the end werent really.
    If you have any suggestions what company to check out, let me know!

    grazie massimo...

    It makes me sad little bit.. You are probably best support that company can have. Try DFi next time. But Im not sure they'll be much enthusiastic.. or if you mentioned graphic cards.. XFX, BFG?

    Well, enjoy your vacation and I hope we will see you here representing some other good company someday.

    I don't think he managed to get those QF panels

    Last time we spoke was an hour or so ago, it was 2am @ taipei and he was in a cab driven by a crazy driver lol.

    Saaya PM'd me and told me the firmware was never finished for the panels, so they wouldn't work anyway.

    Saaya,
    You are one of the reasons I went with the Blood Rage and gave Foxconn a shot. I think it will be a serious loss for them that you are leaving and shutting QF down. Big companies make a lot of short sighted decisions and this is a major one. Just when they started to make headway into the enthusiasts market they decide to jump ship. It's a loss for them and the consumer. I wish you the best and I am sure you will land on your feet doing something you want to do and enjoy. Thank you for all your hard work, you will surely be missed.

    +1 for DFI. Being one of their beta testers used to be fun back in the NF4 day but now a bit of support from them would be appreciated.
