    Sold a little of a lot today

    It was interesting to see someone pay up 94c for 100 shares after the lower sales. Obviously someone is trying to hold up the share price in a low volume market. FYI, my offer to sell was out there long enough that I decided to cancel it; of course, the computers jumped in and scooped up my share in that nano second it took to acknowledge that cancel request. There are bots at work here. I tried to offer shares a penny below ask and within a fraction of a second the ask was lower than I tried to sell at. Tried it again and the same thing happened. Tried it again and the same thing happen. Finally said, what the heck and offered at bid. Waited minutes without that order being processed so I issued the cancel request... And as I said above the machines decided to take my shares (only after they decided it wasn't going lower)... I hate how much computers interfere with low volume purchases and sales. They tweak up the price when you're trying to buy. They run down the price when you're trying to sell and ultimately they masters take away a lot of your profits. Enough rambling, ten year ago this would have sounded crazy; now it's a fact of life. If anyone here want to really sell shares then they need a publicity event to drive up volume enough that the machines can't get in the way.

    Good luck folks!
    FYI, I still own plenty of shares... Just getting really tired of zero activity here

  • Yeah, Bill that was me... I'm a little tired of waiting for a ray of light to shine here

  • Hi Bill,

    It’s been quite a while so today I took a look at your website and discovered the following: “January 30, 2015 - We have now received our NOA (Notice of Allowance) from UL to ship the R30. We will commence shipments over the next few days”.

    Congratulations, it appears that 2015 will finally be your year!!!
    Good luck and best wishes as this plays out.

    BTW, I've been waiting a very long time for my replacement bulbs but will understand if you decide to ship a few to retailers before sending the replacements out.

    Best regards,

    shareholder and advocate for a brighter future :)
