    I read your message and my computer locked
    upcompletely. The computer would not restart and I now have a
    corrupted/damaged hard disk. (using a different computer now).


    I dont know who is trying to get me but this has
    happened to me before a year ago. I guess someone wants me
    to stop posting.

    • Back about 3,000 posts ago (and another lifetime
      it seems) ASL was tumbling daily, news was scarce or
      awful, get_rich was gluing his trailer door back on, mad
      dog was howling at the moon, Maberma dropped off the
      planet, and I still held on to a crazy notion that we
      would be okay in the end. I suggested that if we held
      on long enough, we would see ASL back over the $10
      mark and into the teens in a year or so (this was back
      in October '99) and I backed up my optimism with a
      promise to throw a party with all my winnings in Oct
      2001. It took two yeasr to fall from 20 to 2, I figured
      2 nore years to climb right back up.

      Back in
      the 1960's, before Bobbie Kennedy was shot, he was
      running in the primaries for president. No one gave him
      much of a chance, and then he pulled off a surprise
      victory in West Virginia. Everyone jumped on the
      bandwagon, and the stallwarts had a favorite phrase: "Were
      you with us in West Virginia?" In other words, were
      you with us in the worst of times, and did you keep
      the faith, even before the "rally?"

      And so, I
      ask, "Were you with us in Ghana?"

      A-

      • I have been an ASL long since my first buy at 9
        11/16 in Sep 99.


        As you know I averaged
        down 5 times until I could no longer do so anymore
        because I had used HALF (yes HALF thats how serious I was
        about ASL) of my total trading portfolio. This proved
        my undoing because I had to set a limit where I
        could not afford to lose any more at 1 3/4. I sold at
        3pm but bought it and more back at 9:30 am next day
        when there was the first signs that the falling had
        stopped. None new that it was going straight back yet.

        So if you think that means I didnt keep the faith
        fine. I was out for less than 2 hours and had ploughed
        shitloads (for me) into ASL.

        How long do you intend
        to keep the faith with ASL? Probably just until you
        make a good return on your investment like everyone
        else.
