Thanks for your kind comments. I look forward to exploring the D800 with you.
I started my career in the computer industry in 1958, programming vacuum tube computers for the General Electric Company in Detroit, Michigan. I have written a number of text books and articles about the technology over the years, and have lectured all over the world. I also ran a semiconductor research laboratory for several years which gave me an insight to that rapidly evolving technology. Through assorted contacts there, I assembled a nice collection of wafers of various sizes, as well as packaged processors with the lids off.
I continue to lecture on the future of assorted information technologies and try and stay reasonably current ... not always easy, given the rate of change. I suspect you have some in depth insight to semiconductor products also, correct?
I will be getting into the Intel Pentium wafer and packaged chip photography in the next few weeks with the D800E, and will post images here as they emerge. First, I need to get through the remaining hours of 2012 (Staying safely at home tonight!) and a batch of large format printing for a local law enforcement agency.
Thanks for dropping in.
