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?

Bravo! Bravo!

Scott, Please let us know if you do receive any kind of response.
(I might suggest sending a copy to the CFO and also IR if they are
accessible by e-mail...)

I know that I am not putting one more shiny nickel into this company
until I am given a reason (other than "Wait 'til next Q! Or maybe the Q after
that...")

Insiders buying would definitely jack up the price. And insiders not
buying... well, we clearly see the results of that!

Thanks Martin,

I will advise if I do ever receive a reply, but I'm not counting on it. Frankly, the way I look at it, if this Housely character does not start personally buying and quickly to avoid further shareholder losses, I want to know: WHY THE HELL NOT!!!

If not, get the hell out and don't forget the leave the keys. If we're going down the tubes, I want a CEO who's willing to go down with the crew too. Not some scumbag who drags his safe on the only lifeboat and chuckles as he watches the crew and investors flounder.

I say we start tallying shares on this, Yahoo and other threads to see how much push we have to force this turkey to start laying down his cards. I'm done with smoke and mirrors wait 'til next quarter crap. We can bitch all we want about Berger, but looking at the chart, this Housely ain't doing much better and I for one am getting friggin tired of the excusses.

The grace period is OVER Marky Boy!!!

I would have liked to see the original source for that correspondence. Seems weird he'd make an original post with >'s. Far too many fake hankvmorgan's and the like on Yahoo to swallow that whole. Secondarily, the title which he later disclaims, 'The legal/auditor/SEC wraps are coming off', what the hell is this supposed to mean? The SEC has forced them into a closet for the last couple of years. Give me a break. Seems like convenient scape-goats for the lack of internal charisma. Sooo, even if genuine, this Ed clearly has no grasp on history nor current reality in as far as the market perception of rdus.

That said, still no response to my email to Mark. From what others have been saying, this damn creep has a bad habit of not responding even through we get confirmation of his receipt. One would accept this kind of behavior out of a firm and a CEO actually doing something worthy of a salary. In his present capacity and noting his performance thus far, he surely can use all the friends he can get. Kind'a gives a good feel for the fabric of this cat. Just along for the ride...

Arrogant piece of shit imho.

I agree, it is too easy for somebody to post a fake message so I called Radius and confirmed with Ed Silliman before posting it on this board. However, I would suggest anybody doubting the authenticity call Radius directly and confirm the message.

The phone number for Radius is (650) 404-6000

Thanks

Clyde

Chris,

Wow, you get around! I just replied to your post over on Yahoo!

Anyway, on calling direct, I learned a long time ago talking direct is a doggone waste of time. Unless they'll allow a tape recorder, I don't want to hear anything they won't say or comment on publically. Heck, they have an IR dept, if they have something worthy to say, I'm sure the press will listen. Release it!!!

Frankly, all of these turkeys just love having someone call and spread their smoke and mirror pipe dreams without formal confirmation on these threads. No thanks...

-Scott

In regards to your previous post the purpose of calling Radius was to confirm that the post on Yahoo was, infact, made by Ed Silliman a Radius employee. In other words you do have a "record" of what was said it is his post on Yahoo. Now if you have questions pertaining to what was posted on Yahoo you can call him and ask for clarification but I don't see much to get excited about on that particular post. I am waiting till November 11th to get excited or disgusted. I have held radius for years and am at the point where only actual increases in stock price make me happy......the rumors/possibilities don't.

Thanks,

Clyde
P.S I also don't believe I was in anyway helping to hype the stock. I was just passing along info. on a post made by a Radius employee(remember I confirmed it before posting).
