Well, Cush, I'll be selling long before it hits 65!

I've been trolling for some insight into what might be happening, and to be honest, I've come up dry. I can see a lot of small things, but nothing big, nothing I can put my finger on. Right now, it just looks like solid growth prospects: not rocketship growth, just slow, steady growth.

I'm not crazy about the big position being held by Goepel; I have the same feeling about them as I do about Canaccord - need I say more?

Infowave used to 'telegraph' news, something awful... you could see news coming a week ahead of the announcement. You just had to watch the Williams %R. I would be happier if the ship didn't leak so much: certainly, we all hated to be buying new BMWs for Canaccord insiders. I don't know if it's still the same: anybody have any comments?

Cautiously optimistic. The last runup to around $12 really was a spoof, and I'm watching for another manipulated run. Infowave certainly has a buzz around it again; I'm looking hard for the substance, and haven't been able to find anything yet.

Still dangerous, I think, until we see some broad-based buying to take out some of the smaller house's positions.

Reminds me a lot of a date with an old girlfriend... it's good to be back, but we don't want to see any of the old tricks that made us look elsewhere.

Maybe we'll finally find out what Seybold meant.

Best wishes,
