View Full Version : Perhaps if we sweettalk them ?

A card manufacturer from Canada
is rumoured to release Parhelia.
They produce good hardware
touted by folks everywhere
we love matrox, eat that, NVidia !

Subtle hints have been dropped,
a new card or merely a plot ?
Please Haig, Maggi or Ant
stop teasing the users, and
tell us everything, the whole lot !

Parhelia is the alleged codename,
"sundogs" a simpler word for the same:
'tis an optical effect in the air
truly a codename with flair
but will it allow us to play a game ?

Matrox have a booth at GDC,
a demonstration worth to be seen ?
Headcasting, that was a joke,
laughed so hard I thought I'd choke.
Let's hope now it's gaming they mean!

Press releases courtesy of Dogbert,
Seeing they're fake really does hurt.
Often I've cursed those NDAs,
must provide fun for the "haigs" (*)
we want the truth out in the herd !

I've managed to write this before noon,
somehow I feel like a complete goon:
all this time I have spent hoping,
for Matrox to release something,
thinking that they'll release it very ... shortly ;)



(*) haig, (-s), n. someone who knows something but can't or won't share the knowledge... :)


Well, I couldn't sleep last night; I had to do something ? :D :D

Yes.

How much are you willing to spend?

I have a £10-note that says you don´t know very much.
Prove me wrong!!

I knew I should have gotten a genuine nickname... :D

To my defense: I said in the initial post that I couldn't sleep, so it wasn't written during my working hours...

So, euhm, will I see you in my course next Friday ? ;)

After I read Verstraete's poem I though of something interesting.

I want to sign an NDA just so I know what the new Matrox product is! :D

Why don't we all sign one that way people can stop making rumours about it! I'm sick of people making stuff up, and I respect those who are under an NDA.

I honestly wonder if Matrox will let a simpleton like me know of it's up coming products if I sign an NDA? If not then oh well.

I signed an NDA with the company I work with but everybody knows more that I do so there's no secrets. (little good that NDA is doing)

I think all the Super MURCers should get the option to sign an NDA and get product info :) Never gonna happen, but it'd be cool...

Matrox is extremely picky as to who gets an NDA.
