He has done work for our company. He is the guy that wrote the pipes screen saver in OpenGL. Anyway, his email is no longer in use. He is an OpenGL expert and we have some questions for him. He has some web sites up but they all have his old email. Please, does anyone know have contact information for Ed Benson.

Thanks

Obviously no one here knows how to reach him. So if no one is replying saying how to reach him, then please stop bumping this post to the top of the stack. Instead try asking around somewhere else.

Thanks for your comment, since it is very important for me, I thought I would keep it near the top for two days. I am sorry if this upsets you.

Pipes saver (pseudo) easter egg...

Just 'cause I always wanted to pat the person who thought it up on the back... open the settings page for the pipes screensaver, select "textured" under surface style, but then *don't* choose a texture. It defaults to a cool nice candy cane texture that I always use around the holidays. Kudos Ed! http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif
