    The Graphing Calculator story

    It's midnight. I've been working sixteen hours a day, seven days a week. I'm not being paid. In fact, my project was canceled six months ago, so I'm evading security, sneaking into Apple Computer's main offices in the heart of Silicon Valley, doing clandestine volunteer work for an eight-billion-dollar corporation.

    That is an incredible story! Sometimes I have the same passion that this guy had. I know what it's like to want a project to work so badly that you sacrifice all else to concentrate on just one thing.

    Very Cool Story! BTW, anyone check out the OS X version of this software(It's freeware, I believe, there is a link at the bottom of the story)...It's amazing!
