The End of Dreamcard?

Tim,

Thanks for taking my comments as they were intended. I guess riding  
the OS, Hardware, Software wave can become an expensive proposition  
especially if you are not getting back any rewards. I cant say how I  
will feel when I reach the point of not getting rewards back.

As far as rewards go, I made a promise to myself years back (after a  
bit of youthful trouble) that in my new life I would learn something  
new everyday and have been doing so for 20 years now. The new things  
that I learn everyday from using HC, SC and now Rev have been part of  
my rewards. Also, some of the opportunities that this knowledge has  
opened up for me have been my rewards. Lastly, the monetary rewards  
although small definitely make it worthwhile.

Maybe it is the possibility of future rewards that keeps me riding  
this wave. I love the learning part and hope I always will.

Regards,

Tom
