Default Interesting...

I once heard on an Intel-given tour of their building that they inscribe microscopic pictures on the faces of their processors. Anyone else hear the same? I'm going to phone up Intel and see if this is true.

This is what he was talking about: Molecular Expressions - Silicon Zoo

Scroll down the page a bit and click on the blue titles starting with "A Dog's Life". There's some really neat artwork hiding in our computers.
