Well, I'm sure you can't find AV company that does not have on board some ex VX-ers.
Going back to the topic... I keep all the stuff because I like collecting and you never know when something like a big vx collection can be useful. i.e.: many years ago Z0MBiE told me he was going to write a tool and I should run it over my collection. Finally he didn´t send me it and I never knew what was supposed to do. Usually Z0MBiE was not very talkative. I wonder what´s he doing right now. I lost the contact with him when he stopped joining IRC.
Also the few things I know about coding was due vx collecting. I needed certain tools to manage the files in collection and as there was not anything available I had to code them by myself.
