Could absence really make the heart grow fonder?
I post after an absence of about 3+ weeks and the
two "welcome backs" I get are both from "female"
And I thought MK was the guy on this
thread with "the kivorka." Can't imagine I've got it.
Why me? Why now? Lotta good it'd do anybody at my
age. Must be attributable to that "decorative"
scabbard and blade hanging from me.
thank you. I've checked the name and address labels
I've had sewn in all my garments, including my socks
(in case they're the only things I happen to be
wearing when the "authorities" find me), and it doesn't
appear that I'm the person you're seeking (#3433) but I
think I know who you mean.
Cleo, thank you, too.
I've still got a huge amount of postings on this
thread that I'm determined to read so as to be brought
current with what's been said here. As it happens, I was
spot checking shortly after you'd posted your "tsures"
message to MK and I must admit your use of that term gave
me pause to wonder. It's not an uncommon word that's
entered the American vernacular but I wouldn't say it was
as well knowm or used as a lot of other
BTW, although I would have probably (mis)spelled it
the way you did, my authority in this area, Leo
Rosten, provides 4 variations, all of which (including
your version) end with the vowel being an "i," not an
"e." (i.e. tsuris, tsouris, tsoriss, and

Rosten's closing bit of humor may bring a chuckle, but it
seems (somewhat) inappropriate for a posting on Dad's

children?! So what do you do for aggravation?"

using my wifes Yahoo name. Sorry for any confusion. I
want to be honest and correct as possible. I mostly
listen to the post and was wondering what happened to
you. You Post the most profound and interisting
info> Keep it coming. If you know who I'm talking about
do you have his e-mail address? I was under the
impression he was a former director who now sits on the
advisory board. Investor relations have been no help as
they refuse to answer any correspondence recently.
Probably "silent Period" or the 15+ class action suits. In
any case we've heard from everyone else in the last 3
weeks about doom and cloom to pie in the sky. Long term
how do you view PZN as a investment stock? I
enphasise INVESTMENT. 2-3 YRS. So much has been said about
the Class Action suits and alledged fraud. It would
seem to me that this would have little effect because
of the time element Of the court system. I am
currently involved in a class action suit that involved
fraud. If the settlement offer is accepted the time
frame would have been over 10 yrs. The case in question
is against Colonial Realty Corp. The deep pockets
are Arthur Anderson. The settlement amount is 90
million. The other issues bashing around are management
credibility and the bond issue. ( make that the funding
issue) What do you make of all this? Your opinion is
well regarded. I have nothing to offer ecpect to ask
long I will hold this one. I owned it before at
17 and sold at 21, but only cause I happen to find
worldgate and liked it better. Now I am back but I can;t
help but wonder if the management will restore
confidence or will we go the route of PAH.
**This are strange times as, on the
whole, tech is looking pretty good and no one does it
any better than INTC. But until they get off Intel�s
back, the chips will suffer. I still think that overall
the sector which includes BRCM, AMAT, KLAC, LSI, and
LSCC is doing well, but no one gains when the street
is against them.
**That being said I think that
Techs will gain well over the coming weeks as the
overall market should improve. Big names like SUNW, IBM,
MSFT, INTC, and of course CSCO should move. (You might
have to wait on INTC) With CSCO splitting Monday
night, they may get into a post split funk for a bit,
but they should start to retrace quickly. DELL could
get a bit of respect from a nice interview in
**I like the way SEBL has been trading and they look
good for more. ADBE beat their estimates and made a
nice move, they may pull back a bit but overall they
look good for more. FDC, SLR, EMC, VRTY, LXK, TLAB,
FOSL, SNDK, and LRCX all look as though they will be
heading higher. SILK is a newer issue that focuses on
selling customer service software. They look ready to
make a powerful move soon. USWB is another "services"
seller that we think is ready to move ahead. We still
think NVLS is going to get the attention it needs to
move higher soon. TQNT is one of the best looking
possibilites of all. They are splitting soon, they make the
right product, and they look
