the scene of making...
We showed Qube 3, Users Group goods, Cobalt inc. goods, and more... Photocopy of US Cobalt company's buildings, staffs and a stock. (An certificate but of course it is only the Xerox copy of the sample.)
Special silver Qube 3 strap is good accessory for OBI. (OBI is the belt of Japanese KIMONO.)
Bruce Momjian and Tatsuo Ishii of PostgreSQL.
Bruce asked some questions about Qube product eagerly. "Is there any differences between normal PC?", "I place PC on the kitchen, is it good alternative?", etc. Users Group answered "It has no video interface" then he asked "hack?" :-) Yes, I answered you can.
Yukihiro Matsumoto of Ruby object oriented script language system.
Larry Wall of Perl.
Users Group asked him "Would you know about this instrument?", he said "Well.. I did not played yet". :-) He is gentleman.
