Not entirely sure this should be in the news section, but Liebermann (or Go-L if you like) have finally given up the ghost, phantastic.

...and a lovely article from the history of Go-L here (http://www.techbits.ca/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=20).

Did anyone ever actually get one of their machines?


They were ridiculously expensive. When I first saw the site a while back, i was very impressed, but something about it never sat right with me. Starting a computer company with no budget, product and 2 employees?:rolleyes:

True, but shouldn't you be set up to distribute, before you start shooting off at the mouth.

Thats from one of my favorite cd's.

...mouth sign checks your ass can't cash...

is from Limp Bizkit, "Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water"
the song: Full Nelson

Cause your mouth's writing checks your ass can't cash
Knocked straight the f... out

Limp Bizkit :rolleyes:


I never heard of this company before, I was hoping to click on this and hear that senator Lieberman decided to stop hounding the Video Game industry over violent games and such, instead it's some dopey computer company that couldn't afford to keep doing business. What a dissapointment.

That phrase was around long before Fred and the Bizkits...

I too thought this was about Senator Joe.

Shame. They had the specifications. The functionality. And the looks.

i'm sure that quote is originally from top gun.
Maverick, you just did and incredibly brave thing. What you should have done was land your plane! you don't own that plane, the tax payers do! Son, your ego is writing checks your body can't cash. You've been busted, you've lost your qualifications as section leader three times, put in hack twice by me, with a history of high speed passes over five air control towers, and one admiral's daughter!
