My thoughts EXACTLY! But I would also include that it has to something you ARE producing not just an idea of something you might produce. You also have to send the working item to the patent office to prove it works. That way if you can't make a go of making it and your company fails. The next guy can figure out how to do it better and win. Just because you can dream up a widget but cant keep a budget, that is not a winning business. That my friends, is what doing business is all about. Getting all aspects of business right.
cute tits or quit its?
I have found that a portable hard drive with an encrypted partition works best. Put DSL in the bootable partition in case I have to work at an untrusted PC. FEBE and gmarks cover the worst of my needs on Firefox. If someone swipes my drive, they don't get my data.
