[We actually had a crazy flame this week but there was something that just wasn't right about it. Rudeness and causing offence is an art form, and we don't like amateurs, so we'll stick it in letters somewhere.

This, however, is a strangely threatening letter sent to old Mad Mike Magee (who incidentally still gets post from Intel addressed to Mr M. Mike Magee after we got someone to tap in "Mad" in front of his name on the company's mailing list). Mike replied to this starting: "I'm not entirely certain what you mean, but your missive is vaguely threatening." What do you think?]

Subject: Better watch out, Mikey

It's best to watch your step now, Mike. Your known to lean towards AMD. I think the fudsters are going to take a pounding over this chip (p4), that includes Bert McComas, Brian Neal, Tom Pabst and particularly Van Smith. You wouldn't want to lose your credibility now would you?
