Good luck Dick. To be honest, I am not sure what to make of
the recent runup. It could be that new investors have been
attracted to it simply because of the recent move, and seen that
the company is in good shape and heading in the right direction.
The CC planned for earnings is intriguing -- something must be up.

Personally I was expecting flat to small profit for earnings this Q -- nothing
extravagant, as EditDV for Windows shipped only during the last
week of the Q. Perhaps it will be a blockbuster and prove me wrong.

Oh well, If we see 7 tomorrow I will be a happy man! (and if we
see 9 Wednesday I will jump for joy!)

Dick, Just outta curiosity, did you end up buying DODV, as
you said you intended to do back in July? Stock has been
up and down since then... but looking pretty strong in the face
of this "crash"... Seems to me that a lot of DODV holders
are just waiting for the Christmas season to send us up --
not a lot of willing sellers, at least to this point...

Yo Jeffie,

I guess you haven't been paying much attention around here! Just wanted to point out all of your ridiculous past proclamations proved to be just that. Gosh, if you weren't so think skulled, perhaps you could have shared in our good fortune. What a shame...

Anyway, Imho you owe Chris a major apology there guy! He was right on the money every step of the way.

Good Luck

Yo Scottie,

Just wanted to remind you of your 'ridiculous proclamations' - "At this point, I'm too thoroughly disappointed and damn glad I haven't wasted my time to peel these cert's off basement bathroom wall. I think it's pretty evident they're going nowhere soon" - too. (12/16/98) Talk about thick skulled!

Message 6860469

If my posts kept some people away from RDUS, that's good enough for me!

And my buddy chris the stock pusher hasn't posted ANYWHERE since August 4, 1998! (He must have gotten tired of waiting, eh?) Maybe you can get him to arise from the dead to celebrate whatever has happened since then!

And Good Luck to you, matey.

Matey! Oh, I like that!

Absolutely, and though at one time thoroughly disappointed, I stuck in there with my iron determination to see my way through to a number of very nice gains. I thought you'd like that?

But, the part about being happy about steering people away from a multi-bagger so far was kind of curious?

BTW--You can easily find Chris to deliver his well deserved apology on Yahoo's DODV thread. I'm sure he'd appreciate that.

Good Luck...

Digital Origin Reports Year-End Results; Company Delivers Strong Finish to First Full Year as
Digital Video Software Concern

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 4, 1999--Digital Origin, Inc.
(Nasdaq:DODV), formerly Radius, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and
for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 1999.

For the fourth quarter of 1999, Digital Origin reported net revenues of $4.1M, operating income
of $104,000 and a net profit of $160,000 or $0.03 per diluted share. For the fourth quarter of
the prior fiscal year, the first quarter with a majority of revenue attributable to sales of video
editing software, the company reported revenues of $1.2 M, an operating loss of $1.8 M and a
net profit of $1.3 M or $0.24 diluted share. Non-operating income for the last quarter of the
prior fiscal year included $2.1 M due to the sale of certain assets.

Revenues for the year ended Sept. 30, 1999 were $13.4 M resulting in a net profit of $5.8 M or
$1.02 per diluted share. These results compare to the prior fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 1998 of
revenues of $15.7 M and a net profit of $8.7 M or $1.57 per diluted share. However, operating
results for the first three quarters of fiscal 1998 were predominantly related to sales of monitor
products that the company discontinued in August 1998. Results for 1998 include $12.4M of
non-operating income due to the sale of certain assets.

Mark Housley, chairman and CEO of Digital Origin, said, "I'm pleased to report the results of
our first full year of operations as a digital video software company. Digital Origin was the first
company to focus exclusively on digital camcorder-based software solutions and we are still the
only public company to put 100 percent of our focus on this market."

"Our goal in fiscal 1999 was to show that we could build a profitable, sustainable business
around such solutions. As the market for digital camcorders has grown -- annual camcorder
shipments in 1999 have more than doubled from 1.7M units to 3.8M units worldwide -- and
prices are now below $999 level, this single-minded focus has yielded gratifying results; Digital
Origin grew at almost twice the rate of the overall camcorder market. Total shipments of digital
video products were $4.1M this quarter, a 230 percent increase over the same time last year and
a 9 percent increase over the previous quarter."

"We have created great products with good value and a strong brand, and we have turned this
value for the customer into value for our shareholders," said Housley. "Gross margins showed
a substantial improvement year to year, increasing from 49 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal
1998 to 66 percent this quarter. At the same time we maintained tight controls over spending,
increasing operating expenses less than 10 percent from Q4'98 to Q4'99. All of these
improvements are reflected in our balance sheet; over the year, cash and cash equivalents
increased to $3.6M from $0.6M, and shareholders' equity improved by $6.2M. We now have a
profitable, growing company that is a pure play' in the emerging market for digital camcorder
software solutions."

"Fiscal 1999 was also the year we rounded out our product portfolio by delivering a full suite of
products for all segments of the digital camcorder market: consumer, desktop, and
professional," Housley said. "Customers using MacOS, Windows 95, 98, and NT can produce
broadcast-quality video starting at a price as low as $249. I am very proud of the Digital Origin
executives and employees who continued to announce significant products, promote them, and
deliver them on time with incredible quality and tremendous price/performance."

Housley continued, "Fiscal 1999 was also dedicated to building and strengthening our channels
to deliver desktop video software solutions. In North America we both solidified and
strengthened our traditional computer distribution channels as well as established new channels
built around major camcorder suppliers. Outside the USA we have rebuilt our entire distribution
network from scratch. In Japan, we have a completely new lineup of partners and are beginning
to see revenue growth from that region. In Europe, we extended existing distribution and
established Canon Europe as our channel to the camcorder market. Despite earlier concerns
about potential seasonal weakness in Europe, our business in Europe grew substantially from
quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year. Fiscal 1999 was also the year that Digital Origin embraced
the internet. E-commerce sales grew almost 700 percent year to year; e-commerce and direct
sales accounted for 14 percent of total sales in fourth quarter of 1999."

So, has all of the former RDUS shareholders abandoned DODV? I held on through all of those hard times and now that DODV is acting like a "real" stock and has appreciated 265% since the reverse split, everyone is gone. Next stop seems to be $10.00......

Martin, it's too bad this thread died. I held RDUS for many years and decided to hold through the ticker change, the reverse split etc. Today it traded at 14 3/8...When is it over valued? Is the PE true...they received lots of cash when they sold Splash and I'm sure that's all figured what's it really worth? I'm still holding...probably til I drop and my kids can inherit it! Richard...
