Hello Sy! (I know - your name isn't Sy, but you were on Yahoo and old habits are hard to break).

Long time no hear from you.

Back into the HDD stocks now? I never really left them, and over the last year, WDC, to borrow a phrase, has been "berry berry guud tu me!" Not for the faint of heart (as you stated), and the forest lies deep with rats, skunks, snakes ..... and sharks (land shark!!!!).

I still chase the windmills, but somebody has to do it.

Like you, but not the same time as you, I also jumped into INTC when it broke 20 (going down). Sold out last summer at 25 and put it back into WDC. Never got back into INTC. The WDC story has just been too compelling.

Here we are on the WDC board talking about STX (I also have a position in STX - not doing near as well as WDC). The SI boards used to be the place to be back before 2000, but they have been really quiet for awhile in HDD land. Interesting to see a name I recognize.

Hope you have been doing well. And wish the same for your future.

I'll be around.
