lech, the only people who look foolish by asking questions are those who try to appear superior by answering them snidely. Stupid questions if continuosly asked turn into sound inquiries. We have enough people puting others down in the world now, dont yuh think?.
By the way, I rmember asking a stupid question on the VMW board. I asked why vm ware could compete against microsoft and others who will give their technology away. I recieved a barrage of "superior" answers from people telling me I shouldnt be here on the board if I dont know the fundamentals of the co. They were all screaming buy! buy! buy! when the stock was at around $70 last year. Programmers, techies of all kinds, even people working for the company!!!They dont look so smart now, do they????? There are o stupid questions, my martial arts teacher tells me. I believe him. At one point in your life, you were asking stupid questions and so was warren buffett. Now...whats your point? Sorry to bust your chops. Have a good holiday. Really!
