Two days ago, Theo mail the following to misc_(_at_)__(_dot_)_ It appears that he didn't
have to sign an NDA.

Subject: sun & via & transmeta

So Sun has not followed through yet.  We've not even seen an NDA/CDA
yet, so that we can decide what will happen there.  We now view their
actions as a "permanent stalling" tactic.

VIA has come through.  We've got C3 cpus with the random number
generator being sent to us, and we already have a pdf completely
describing the functionality.

Transmeta is coming through.  They're putting the finishing touches
on some stuff, and then we'll be getting stuff from them.
