We develop software that introduces augmented reality to the operating
room. The development is done in the United States and in Austria. The
product is in clinical trials in Europe and we need developers to
expand our engineering capacity. For well defined subprojects with non
proprietary technology like CT and MRI imaging data acquisition we also
resort to contract assignments. At this time we are looking for
permanent employees (preferable local developers) for a development
unit in Budapest.

The technology of Artma is internationally recognized. You can learn

The conference will officially begin in the late afternoon

UCSB is readily accessible from US 101.  When driving

about 10 miles north of Santa Barbara, take the Airport/UCSB
Highway 217 exit which leads directly onto campus.  When
driving south on US 101 (from San Francisco), take the
Storke Rd./UCSB exit, travel about 1 mile on Storke turning
left onto El Colegio Road which leads directly onto campus.
When entering campus, stop at the campus gate and request

permit from the gate attendant by identifying yourself as an

Desk Staff at check-in if you will be needing a permit.
Attendees residing off-campus may purchase a weekly parking

Oops, rereading my text I realize that again it is not quite clear
what exactly the poet wanted to express. When speaking about
"recently", I meant since about mid-seventies. These facts have been
widely published and consequences discussed in literature and subject
of many dissertations through the world's universities. Thanks for
the correction and apologies to conspiracy theory adepts.

Interesting opinion and rather a new to me. I would be grateful if you
show your sources you are basing this opinion on.

I had a book edited in 1911 or 1913 in the USA where American Slovaks
exclaimed "we want Sopron, we want the northern side of the Balaton".
Fortunately, history went an another way - imagine the instabilites if
roughtly a half of the Slovakia's population was non-Slovak.

Sorry, I am not able to give more precise information about the book
it has been probably confiscated by the commies after I escaped from
Czechoslovakia. I bought it in an Antikvariat in Prague in late seventies
and doubt it will come again under my eyes...

Yes, it's sorrowful. There ideed are people who try to come with some
revolutionary ideas every six months. The problem is when these revolutionary
ideas are all the same all the time. Don't be upset: the guy does it
routinely as to throwing such texts into arena and waits the gladiators to
be upset. There are such Slovaks, but fortunately, there are different
Slovaks as well.
