Thresh en zijn kameraden hebben een artikeltje gepost over de neergang van Hercules, vooral bekend vanwege de super snelle Dynamite TNT2 Ultra en natuurlijk de legendarische monochrome hercules videokaartjes uit de jaren '80:
In 1997, when the current ex-management team took over, Hercules was already deeply in debt. In the last two years, the Hercules team concentrated on bringing the company back to profitability by producing the best graphics products given the existing technologies. We did fairly well given the competitive nature of tour industry, but ultimately our financial situation caught up with us.
In the last few weeks, the employees were made aware that their pay could not be guaranteed. Virtually everyone, including upper management, decided that we would attempt to deliver the exiting backlog of orders and provide customer support. In the meantime, a prospective business proposal was in the works that would alleviate the financial burdens that we were carrying. In the end, the team just could not stay together long enough for the completion of the deal.
In het artikeltje helaas geen woord over een eventuele overname van de merknaam 'Hercules'.
