I own CRYSF, bought at $21 and am still holding. I also own CHKPF, Checkpoint Software. They are also an Israeli company and the number one maker of firewall and security systems for pc's and internets etc in the world. I see the same kind of posts on that board as this, namely the lack of any news releases. I dont know, maybe its just an Israeli thing. From what I understand, these guys pick up alot of the knowledge from doing time in the army, then get out and start up these companies. Maybe they are just use to being secretive, but i agree. A little good PR once in awhile sure wouldnt hurt.
What I can tell you about the israelies, is that they were educated for surviving. After all, Israelies are Jewish. When it comes to using their brain -- israelies do it in the most unusual, and creative way. Software writing is an excellent field to put creativity to work. That's why there are so many software programmers and software houses in this country (and apparently, all of them are doing money). I truely believe that "Crystal" beats other Y2K companies because the ingenuity it delivers, and this is unlikely going to stop in this project not only because success wants to replicate itself, but because the restless israeli mind of Crystal's people will allways come up with something new.
Now to what I think is the reason CRYSF (and other Y2K companies) are having hard time: Y2K bug is, let's face it, a pain in the ass. It's only human nature to deal with such annoing stuff in the "leave me alone" way. Unless the world perceives the disasterous effects of Y2K bug -- nobody think seriously about getting prepared for it. But luckily, we will be saved, thanks to the big mess which Europe is going to go through with the Euro currency. This mess will do good to CRYSF, ofcourse, but it will give the world a clue about the meaning of the next major event -- Y2K mess.
So, don't worry guys. The big panics is around the corner. And when I say "panics" I mean it! So if anybody have never seen how an unknown stock is making a ten-time fold in a matter of weeks -- watch CRYSF.
