The drama continues.

Does anybody from National Semiconductor have an opinion of Raplh Whitworth?

Many years ago in the late '80s, I was a Temporary Worker @ a HP facility in Santa Clara.

I worked very hard and was on the verge of a permanent full time position, when I suffered a muscle pull in my back.

All bets were off and I was let go and never invited back. I have never forgotten it.

My wish for HP now is nothing short of bankruptcy and financial ruin. Looks like my wish may be coming around.

I bet Paul Allen is looking to buy the company at a graveyard price, then fire all the employees and use the company's patents to troll all the innovative and successful companies in Silicon Valley.

Raymond: You were lucky to be considered for employment. They were not willing to hire temp workers. You would be put at a site for a year and then you had to move on to another area.

This HP is a sad joke. The founders would be turning in their graves. It deserves nothing but bankruptcy.
