But what you failed to mention is that he was born into royalty, a family of lawyers. I was born a commoner (working class). The lawyers' greed has made a mess of this once greatest nation on earth and it has been lawyers that have prevented me from offering the computer world Advanced, and I do mean ADVANCED Data Access Method (ADAM). I designed and programmed it over twenty years ago. There is no Data Access Method that will touch it for speed, efficient use of memory, efficient use of disk space and it will do things that even IBM's legendary VSAM won't do. If there were such an Access Method it would be dominating the market. Right now it only runs on PCs but it could be easily adapted to run on other platforms. It is lawyers who have prevented me from making it available to other developers, especially in the Client/Server area. Eden Software is trying to replace mainframes with PCs but I had to do google searches on the internet to find them. I'm sure that, if they added ADAM to their system, it would speed it up dramaticly enough to go ahead and replace a bunch of big, and I mean big, businesses mainframes. Lawyers have bankrupted me but there is no way I'll sell ADAM unless I can get a couple of million out of it.
