    My 17th patent, issued last Tuesday, is now posted on my website
    (spread spectrum for WiFi).

    Hello Jim,

    Congratulations. Does Freescale now owe you guys royalties for it, so
    you can buy an island (with WiFi network, of course) and retire?

    Regards, Joerg

    Thanks! That was one of those applications I didn't even know was in
    process. John McCorkle, the concept guy (and founder) of Xtreme
    Spectrum came up with the idea and hired me to implement it in

    McCorkle for sure. Me, I'm just the hired gun ;-)

    Hello Jim,
    Well, that's the fate of consultants. The usual contract assigns all IP
    to the client. Same here but I am ok with it.

    Regards, Joerg

    Hey I'm not stupid, but I'm drunk!

    If you promise not to tell everyone else then have a look for GB2386011.

    Mr Bloggs knows.

    And be sure to get a copy of BB Mountain ...errr BrokeBack Mountain...
    when it comes out. This is a serious expose of what life on the
    Australian range was all about.

    Is that you on the left?

    My religion consists of a humble admiration of the unlimitable
    superior who reveals Himself in the slight details we are able to
    perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional
    conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is
    revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God
    Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

    Never mind answering the question, I know everything. You must have been
    seriously injured throughout your career; more than a few descriptors
    could be applied here, but naive is not one of them.

    I am a designer for hire (polite terminology for prostitute). If you
    were in the biz you would know that consultants don't own their work

    But I've made a substantially pleasant living at it.

    Amusingly, over the years, I've designed first virtually everything
    that has someone else's name on it.

    But I've tended to keep such things as my private art, re-useable at
    will. And if there's ever a patent claim I just produce the prior
    work... stops 'em dead in their tracks ;-)
