I don't really understand the financials of this company very well. Ovbiously not, if I bought my first stake at 4! So I didn't talk financials with them. I mainly talked about their products, the coming of the DV revolution, target markets, and the appropriate types of user interfaces for each type of market. I would agree with you that if they are not buying the stock at these levels it's because they see the possibility of new lows. I'm holding for the longterm on this stock now, so I'm not too concerned with what happens to the stock price tomorrow, but rather next year. Having said that, do you know when earnings are this quarter?

You paid $4.00/Share?! Damn, if could have only been so lucky!

That's reverse logic. Everyone on both boards (SI/Yahoo) have been scratching their heads over how we'll deal with the delisting problem. I say it's not problem at all! Housley becomes a man and merely 'entices' himself and every VP and above to begin immediately to make private open market purchases of the stock they represent. Like he needs a brain-fart to figure this one out?!

The buying pressure alone should increase the value, but more importantly, the managment will finally be giving the investment community that they, believe in themselves. See, everyone wants to just throw credit at Housely for resurrecting this firm. Frankly, although I think he has done a fair job so far, he certainly has not suck his head on the line to make anything easier. I wish everyone would recall, the stock price is now lower by far than ever before. As such, any increased leverage and opportunity of a higher cap has been lost due to Mr. Housely refusing to invest personally. That alone stinks of a man just looking out for himself for paycheck. Again, why should anyone invest in this POS when even the insiders won't? WAKE UP DUMBIES!!!

You know frankly, I'm more than a little peeved with this Bruce clown. Any exec worth a shit always buys personally to infer a commitment to his superiors and the shareholders. Goddamn money grabbing loser figures he's gonna stick around a few months to see some options appreciate. Prick!

Having said that, do you know when earnings are this quarter?

Dates kicked around include Nov-4 & 20. Nothing official announced yet from what I can tell.

And Scott's post is the voice of reason and season. Hard to sound like a virgin after you've been screwed.

With Radius, Housely & Berger, that's the understatement of the year. Forget about Daddy stitches, I've got seasoned telephone pole stitch scars from this baby and it looks like another round is creeping up.

IMHO, this Housely prick's gotta lotta nerve taking a paycheck without a personal risk at this juncture in my book. I'm just getting a little tired hearing about this bright future and what a great job he's doing while the damn share price continues the new 52 week low boogie.

This Housely POS ain't done shit until some of looong termers start breaking. Hmmm, anyone got any split corrected above $100. At least let's figure what the share price was when he took over and base our judgement there. Either way, Housely, you gotta looong way to go...

Every little partnership helps. I like to see Radius getting in early with these big companies. Hopefully it will payoff in the long run when the DV market is bigger. I think they are going to have some kind of stripped-down consumer oriented EditDV for Windows at the Comdex show. I certainly hope that rumor materializes.

I was just reading an article in one of Ziff's rags on the future plans at Intel thru 2000. They claimed that although Intel would very much like to integrate IEEE 1394, it has canceled plans to support FireWire in an upcoming version of the 440BX chipset. The source claims that officials at two major PC makers convinced Intel that the added functionability wasn't worth the added $10-$20 per unit. Intel has publically stated that they will consider re-exploring this at a later date.

These are pretty much the same plug-ins that Radius announced at the DV Expo. Makes sense, since Truevision is using the Radius codec. I don't understand the need for Truevision doing what Radius is already doing. Maybe Radius needed some cash so they are licensing it to Truevision.

Seeing Mr. Housely and the rest at our beloved aren't responding, I figured I'd share a suggestion box message I sent to Mark that went unanswered which kind'a sheds some light on his backbone or lack thereof:

To: 'mhousley@radius.com'
Subject: Shareholder Correspondence

Mr. Housely,

Being a shareholder who has watched his investment in your firm drop in excess of 95% over the last two years, I cannot fathom the utter lack of concern you and your crew have shown now that we're facing another need for a reverse split. I and the other shareholders have heard NOTHING as to your plans to prevent delisting which if you're not aware, will most likely be the final axe in Radius's back.

I have eagerly awaited the expression of confidence in yours and your managers skills by a personal purchases of the stock you all represent, but continue to be slapped in the face on the realization that this simple tool to boost the stock price to prevent delisting and other undesirable alternatives will be avoided because you don't care to share the bathwater you have forced us into.

Why is it that you publicly broadcast to the entire investment community that YOU have no personal confidence in the future prospects of Radius nor you own abilities to wit. If you and your associate do not, tell me why in the heck should anyone else. Do you get the picture as to why we're currently sitting at 13/16ths? That is the message the street is hearing loud and clear.

I challenge you and your top executives to give back some of the salary you all have extracted from this firm in the form of some significant personal stock investment in your own company. Make the right move for a change and tell your shareholder that you and your people believe in yourselves and are willing to get in the trenches with us.

Don't you think it's about time?
-Scott
