If Cody has indeed reverse-engineered DirectX 10's Geometry Shader (probably the key component) it is a great accomplishment. They have formed a company, I guess to monetize the work. You can view their site here.
It's an interesting project. We will have to see how they do.

Remember Geek Meet 2007 is in two weeks in Boston MA. May 4-6 http://GeekMeet.OnComputers.info
1) For my first offering this week I’m going to put up some thing I stumbled on earlier this month by accident. I was at a site I put up earlier looking at pictures, when I spotted something I thought I would make my desk top picture for a while (I change them often, easily bored I guess), anyway I was at http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/ the Astronomy Picture of the Day site. Looking thru the archives saw one titled The View from Everest; it’s a very cool panoramic picture from the top of
2) The second one for the week for any one interested in science, and pictures. Ever wondered what a volcanic neck and dyke might look like, a hint
3) For the Art Bell types how about some pictures of the front, and rear gates at area 51, this site does not seem to be done by a professional, pretty basic picture presentation, but interesting to me because of the amateur feel of the site. There is some information there; I was taken by links to government acts about security. While they explained about trespassing, and photographs, they did not cover the use of deadly force which I had always heard about; I would be interested to read how they can justify killing people who stumble into the area, especially in the days when they said it did not exist. I heard about a guy searching for hidden government sites using Google Maps, and investigating the blocked out areas. Be interested to hear from anyone who might know more about this. Anyway here are the sites. http://www.lazygranch.com (front gate). http://www.lazygranch.com/(back gate)..
4) Last but certainly not lest, this has to be the best Space News site I have found they put up stories daily, usually only hours or minutes old. Lots of links to interesting space related sites. Well worth checking out this one if you are space oriented http://spacefellowship.com/
