Well - you have to remember that until early in the 2000's, Windows was built as a layer above DOS and DOS was still resident in memory. You sort-of needed to know it long after Windows was introduced.
I think he's passed into full cartoon status, Vic. If not already true long ago, it's true now: you're talking to a brick wall.
Highly doubtful, as I'm saying/posting nothing more (and probably less) than I've done for SEVENTEEN YEARS. Most people "left" because the board was taken away from them. I doubt many can find their way back to this present, very tricky, incarnation. The other problem is that there is no news; nothing to talk about (except when Jeff_fi tries to fill the void with his fantasies).
"There just aren't that many people in the middle of the ocean. "
You'd be surprised. Clearly. Oh - and you don't need people in the 'middle of the ocean' to have a device 'in the middle of the ocean'.
Why ask what? Your first two sentences make no sense to me.
They had more than a few thousand customers in 2004 or 2005. Whatever advances have been made in technology that GSAT now purports (or - YOU purport) to meet, a lot of other companies have evolved as well. GSAT/GSTRF cut corners here and there and nickled and dimed their efforts and where are they now? An incomplete constellation, partially composed of older satellites that are failing or will soon fail - run by a company running out of cash. Dilution may be an option - but what a #$%$ option for the ordinary stockholder.
Oh - boats and planes as the platform; got 'ya. So it's another pipe-dream about a huge untapped market that's going to transform GSAT's bottom line (now that TLPS appears to be almost certainly going nowhere) as never before. A supposed market that is probably niche at best, as it is already largely well-served by terrestrial networks and existing technologies. But not in your eyes - no. Christmas is still coming.
I seem to recall a certain investor's unbridled enthusiasm for Flarion modems during the pre-bankruptcy GSTRF days. On and on the posting of technical specifications, accompanied by wild prognostications about future customers and profits. Who was that guy.........?
"Uplink antennas to GEOs are problematic and expensive, because they have to track the satellite."
Huh???!!!!! What are you getting at? What part of GEOSYNCHRONOUS don't you understand? You point an antenna at a spot in the sky and it's the same spot tomorrow and the day after and the day after..... Relative to you, a GEO satellite DOESN'T MOVE.
The rest of what you wrote sounds like gibberish too. Typical.
At $7 a trade, your "fees" are more than 30%. Most mutual funds are under 1.5%, which is where most of my money is invested. Tell me again who's the dufus?
