    so why are you so biased?

    "many of you rush to his (miller's)defense over and over again, and have been doing so for more than 4 years. What is it that you all love so much about him?"

    No one's prefect in this business my friend and yes he has had bad calls, but please compare this resume to any other drive analyst or PM:

    1.First of all, he was awarded the Wall Street's Journal #1 computer peripheral analyst award last year. Zacks also rated him 5 stars for FOUR CONSECUTIVE YEARS for his drive stock picks.
    2. He also recommended buying WDC and MXO five years ago at $5, while the bank analysts were downgrading the group. WDC and MXO went to $15 within one year.
    3. First to put a buy on Komag at $8 and buy on IVAC at $10, before anyone else covered the stocks. PS, he has had buys twice on IVAC, so much for the "he hates IVAC excuse"
    4. First to put a sell on HTCH early last year in upper $20s, and first to warn investors that IVAC's orders and earnings would fall off last May.
    5.A number of drive analysts like those at Weisel and Needham have never put a sell on a drive stock. What does that tell you?
    6. He and one(2?) other analyst are the only analysts who currently rank 4 or 5 stars from Starmine for their earnings accuracy in 3 drive stocks.
    7. He worked in the drive industry for a long time as a physicist and manager and has a MBA, unlike many of the drive analysts who never worked in industry at all and have just an undergrad bean counting degree.
    8. How many people do you know that have their work featured in the Smithsonian and also worked as a lead engineer on a Nobel prize winning project?
    9. NASA Astronaut semi-finalist.
    10. Numerous technical publications and patents.

    Perhaps you would like to provide your own qualifications for comparsion? I don't think so, LOL!

    Now, I did listen to the tape and you are right he did say 90% uptimes and yields. However, I think that was an error. If you disagree, please provide a report where he uses 90% uptimes in his report or his caluclations. In all the data that has been presented/published, he uses 80% uptimes and then goes to 65%. So I think you are making much ado about an error in speech, why?

    In that same 4Q report, Fairbairn goes off and tells investors that Lean tool orders won't drop off sharply, even by 2009 or 2010.

    You failed to comment on that along with other missed projections by the company.

    Why?????????

    Now,I have answered your question, how about answering mine?

    Why are you so obviously biased against him?

    In case you don't want to go into detail, let me provide some possible answers:

    1. Day or professional trader who is losing his shirt on IVAC.
    2. PM or buy side analylst who is losing his shirt on IVAC.
    3. Analyst at another sell-side firm who has been pumping IVAC.
    4. IVAC employee or relative of IVAC employee.

      ...I'm sure he will really love the one about smelling my mother's odor, Doug really liked that one too!
      ---------------------------

      You know, I had to think about this one.

      v1kes_won used the phrase ROTFLMAO
      To which I replied "you are right on the floor licking your mothers ass odor? That's sick!"

      and now you, youare_a_moron, took offense, and said I said it about *your* mother.

      another solid link

      ...but anyways, I wish I could tell you my nefarious scheme like all the Bond villians stupidly do, but I got to say... it's brilliant... it really is, I am very proud of myself for coming up with it. I know, you are going to bluster, and talk more shit, and egg me on, and I need that, I really do... I thrive on hatred. You really think you cannot be linked, and even if you could, you think it would be impossible to actually link you to an investment firm, without IP addresses, which you know damn well Yahoo does not give out except when issued an order from a court. You also know using multiple accounts is not against the TOS, or even illegal. It would be folly to think this gives you free reign to conduct illegal activities.

      But, as anybody who has ever had a need to hack it ;) knows, brute force is just stupid.

      Several things I have learned throughout my life:
      1. If someone threatens you, take it seriously.
      2. A stupid criminal always thinks the murder weapon is needed to aid the investigation.
      3. Power breeds corruption.
      4. If immorality is allowed to escape, it will only grow.
      5. Crooks can never keep their mouths shut.
      6. You can't fuck with the righteous.
      7. Employers love a self starter.
      8. Never, ever think it is over because things got quiet.

      So, here is the best advice any lawyer would ever give you.

      Shut up.

      And that's the last you will ever hear from ol' Anita.

    • We are watching already, and laughing. You got Mark's gig down cold.

      My fave multiple personality is "madisonwischeese". Whats yours?

      ;-P

    • ---------------------
      Oh, I thought you were just dumb, old Anita the day trader/loser who drives a mid-eighties Japanese car and has a very meager solitary existance?
      ---------------------

      Please log in as one of your older DL's, and I will consider playing your game. youare_a_moron or you.re_retardeded will do fine. Maybe mr Wisonsin chesse too.

    • "You have no idea how interesting (I am). You have no clue why I am here... and I wish I could tell you"

      Oh, I thought you were just dumb, old Anita the day trader/loser who drives a mid-eighties Japanese car and has a very meager solitary existance?

      Well I don't think so either, "Anita"!

      You got all the markings of a contract professional pumper/dumper working out of a East Coast "PR" firm.

      You told us you spend all your time on the computer. You post at all hours of the day: 2:00am, 4:00am, etc. You have all the techno geek terms and ways of avoiding detection. BTW, nice job astro-turfing, IVAC. Why did you stop? Somebody got nervous and pulled your contract?

      Well, Anita, I agree 100% with you.

      I think its about time the NASDR and SEC finally pulled the plug on these contract "PR" firms that companies, traders, and PMs hire to do their dirty, ooops, "promo work" on these threads. I have been trying to expose that for years. I have also been watching the trading of IVAC for sometime and something just doesn't seem quite right to me. Maybe you could include that in your investigation? If not, I'm sure someone else will.

    • --------------------------------
      BTW, thanks, that last post will represents even more evidence against you. You just keep on digging that hole deeper and deeper, don't you little man?
      --------------------------------

      More evidence? That I am investigating you?
      Please, pay a lawyer to sue me... it's your money thrown down a drain.

      ------------------------------
      You don't understand several things little man, like the difference between freedom of speech and slander and what really is a pump and dump...
      -----------------------------

      Let me spell out some things in layman's terms.
      1. slander lawsuits are extremely difficult to win
      2. namecalling is never considered slander
      3. slander requires falsehoods.
      4. Pump and dump is a laymans term for "stock manipulation"
      5. Slander requires material damage.
      6. Stock manipulation requires evidence that a firm has intentionally attempted to change the price of a stock for their benefit. Your firm's manipulation is much wider than just these yahoo boards, and I intend to prove it.

      --------------------------
      ...what is "astro turfing"?...
      --------------------------

      You underestimated me from the beginning. But don't think I am a paid shill. Far from it. Use google to see what astro-turfing is... you thought you could get away with cheating, you had been doing it so long, you finally convinced yourself it wasn't dishonest, or illegal. Well, the law has changed since 2003.

      --------------------
      Also, be sure to show any attorney all the unprovoked venon filled posts and threats you were making over the last three weeks, especially the ones with comments like dumbass, amateur, etc. I'm sure he will really love the one about smelling my mother's odor, Doug really liked that one too!
      --------------------

      Never play poker, guy.. your bluffs are pathetic. Case of youare_a_moron vs anitahackett79... plantiff claims defendant called her a moron on an internet message board.

      -------------------
      Just my guess, but your previous history may be real interesting........
      -------------------

      You have no idea how interesting. You have no clue why I am here... and I wish I could tell you, because I enjoy what I do when it comes to exposing snively little rich boys who thought they could cheat their way through life, and never have it catch up to them.

      You ever hear of the 5th? Ha ha ha ha ha! You are so stupid, you are worried about the "reputation" of your Double logins, that your mouth just keeps spewing diarrhea. I certianly hope you have talked to the legal department where you work.... because I KNOW their advice would be... SHUT THE FUCK UP NOW!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! But it's way too late for that, isn't it? You have years of history! And I also know, you legal department would be outraged to find what you have been doing... AND your employer would fire you when they found the history of how often you have been posting from work.

      And it's too late now, but next time you want to cover your tracks, you should try an unyun router.... oops, can't use one of those from prison!

      Maybe you could beg Yahoo to erase it all... except I have already backed it all up. Maybe I should have been investigating my stocks, and not losing my shirt... but maybe, I wanted to get down into the details... you know... where the devil lies.

      -----------------------
      You also now seen to be posting from your home back East, rather than from work?
      -----------------------

      Ha ha ha ha! Now I am posting from Hell, gumshoe! That's where my lawyer resides!!!

      BWAHAHAHAHAH!!

      (He loooves bad lawyer jokes.. loves them)

    • I see you still haven't talked to a lawyer or the legal department at Yahoo, eh little man?

      Why not, a little chat with Doug M. at Yahoo may really open your eyes? He's aware of the situation.

      You also now seen to be posting from your home back East, rather than from work?

      BTW, thanks, that last post will represents even more evidence against you. You just keep on digging that hole deeper and deeper, don't you little man?

      You don't understand several things little man, like the difference between freedom of speech and slander and what really is a pump and dump. Here's a little help, a pump and dump is when someone recommends a stock to one person, while telling others to sell it. LOL, on that one!

      BTW, what is "astro turfing"? You sound like a real pro? I thought you were some nickel and dime retail dumbo, but it sure looks like you were lying about that also!

      This could be real interesting if this gets to court, cause we could find out quite a few things. You see, its quite gutless to stand behind a fake ID and continuously bash/slander people in a public forum. In court you will have to show your face, tell who your employer is, explain where you were posting from, reveal all your previous history and posts. Also, be sure to show any attorney all the unprovoked venon filled posts and threats you were making over the last three weeks, especially the ones with comments like dumbass, amateur, etc. I'm sure he will really love the one about smelling my mother's odor, Doug really liked that one too!

      BTW, little man you really don't want to waste any attorney's time, because they are quite expensive. At least the ones in my family are, but who knows, you might find some cheapo Yahoo out there who needs work, but he will require a lot of upfront money.

      So go for it big guy, I'm just one good legal settlement away from retirement which you seem so willing to contribute too. I just hope your employer has big $$$$, cause I want a big Yatch! I could use some entertainment anyway. BTW, you might have to work for the rest of your life to pay off your big, dumb mouth, if you can find a job, and you are already losing your shirt on IVAC. Just my guess, but your previous history may be real interesting to explore before a judge.

      So Caio, little man, you are beginning to become quite boring and I have given out enough good advice here already.

    • You know what's funny?

      You think I'm bluffing.

      You have no clue how I am tying it together. I am sure you even think I can't... you think you are real slick.

      I have already told you a little about the case I am putting together. You have been doing this for years... using multiple accounts to create the illusion of consensus on a stock... aka pump and dump, aka astro-turfing, and it is illegal. Furthermore, the amount of time it takes to log in and out, and create so many posts across so many forums shows you live here, or should I say, make a living here.

      But you have a unique writing style, thats how I know you all are the same person.

      Go ahead and bluster and think you are safe.

      ----------------------
      I thought I ran across every nut case on Yahoo, but you got to be #1!
      ---------------------

      I am way crazier than anyone you will ever run into in your life. I do not take kindly to being threatened. You will see how determined I am.

    • "If you disagree, please provide a report where he uses 90% uptimes in his report or his caluclations. In all the data that has been presented/published, he uses 80% uptimes and then goes to 65%. So I think you are making much ado about an error in speech, why?"

      Still waiting for that report, scooter!

    • "I have a lot of proof against you"

      Proof of what, moron?

      The only proof that exists is that you are a whiney, little, panty waist, who is losing his shirt in IVAC and you want to blame an Analyst who told you ONE YEAR ago that IVAC's orders and sales would plunge this year and you were too damn brain dead to understand that!

      Then you went into a triade because the Analyst inquired about uptimes during a conference call which were different than the Company stated and were never included in an actual report!

      I thought I ran across every nut case on Yahoo, but you got to be #1!

      ROFLMFAO!

    • I have a lot of proof against you, and who you are... you fucked up again. And you call me a shill! You have over a half dozen accounts... and I got proof to link them.

      I'm investigating you.... mother fucker. Why would someone have about 6 accounts on these board? You want to threaten me? Your IP's have been recorded, and I can tell you were too stupid not to cover your tracks. You wouldn't even know how.

      The evidence is clear, who the fucking paid shill is.
      I am putting together all the evidence for Yahoo, so they'll look at it and get an IP match. Then it's time to cooperate with the SEC.

      Although your IP address is not displayed on your post, Yahoo! does record your Yahoo! ID (youare_a_moron) and IP address (192.168.0.1) to help combat abuse.

      And let me guess what fucking firm you work for... asshole. How do you find the time to post as dozens of different accounts?
