    "...my favorite island"

    I can understand why-

    We have been there 12 times since 1990- NO building bigger than a palm tree allowed and NO jet-skis either plus 40 miles of beaches.

    >Mark-

    Hawaii (Kauai actually) will be my full time home this Fall. I close on a house in the Kapaa district on Kauai on 1 September. Selling the house in New York sometime.

    Want to see what would have happened if you invested in the S&P with reinvested divs at a certain date and wondered what it would be worth this year? Wonder no more-
    A really neat calculator for the "Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda" group. That plus a lot more.

    I will be in Hawaii in September- Six hours behind the East coast. If I continue trading stocks it will likely be on more offshore bourses. I get up at 03:00 to trade Oslo now but I have not been trading much at all the last several months.

    Been considering currency pairs- Dabbled a bit when I was sure the dollar/euro was a solid long and it paid off. The nice thing about that arena is that it is 24 hours.

    >Mark-

    Thanks-
    Nice strategy. The only problem is fear of falling asleep!

    I think it would be a good idea to keep finger on triggah all time with Chinee reaction time being what is is.

    Is that ETF on the Shanghai or Hong Kong exchange?

    Do you trade there?

    One of my dogs is in the second bout of Lyme Disease in less than a year. We have to do the proscribed stick it down the throat bit as he chews everything and no longer will be fooled by bologna, peanut butter, liverwurst or sections of hot dog.

    My vet comes to the house and I asked her about the fact that a body will always test positive once infected and she said it would wear down in time, meanwhile a more elaborate test must be given to someone or somedog(?sp) previously afflicted.

    Oh yeah she did say something else- They have recently determined that Lyme Disease can be transmitted by sexual contact.

    I couldn't bring myself to ask whether it was dog to dog human to human or...ahem... between animal and human.

    Re: (MEMP) PUT Sells-

    One of my technical Buy/Sell signals is a downdraft through the MACD 0.0 line followed by a modest increase then a downdraft to a higher low price than the previous low moving up to increasing increments of increase. MEMP is in the last described stage and is increasing slightly- Hence my PUT sales.

    So far so good-

    >FPA-

    That's fascinating, Rattie, especially when taking Moore's Law into consideration. Doubling of transistors every year per square inch! Carl Sagan would even be impressed. Trillions, and trillions-

    >FPA-

    Thank you very much.

    Very illuminating analysis of what is real not political hype. This is what the public and public officials should see more of and not the media hype and tripe.

    The Greeks talk about increasing taxes? It is to laugh. They don't enforce tax collection now. How is increasing what they tax going to improve revenues? According to Greek data there are only eight people in the whole country that make over 500,000 euros a year.

    The Greek tax ministry has been pleading with their own staff to pay their taxes. Begs the question- Why should they pay taxes when the fat cats of Greece pay nothing? Would you? I sure wouldn't if I didn't have to.

    The Greek pension system as it stands is an insult to the rest of Europe- the rest of the world. Retirement at 55 is a totally unrealistic objective. Even retirement at age 60 requires a doubling of what is needed to be contributed over a person retiring at 65.

    OK, I'm getting off my soap box now. I wish one of the actuaries that follow this instablog could jump in and put some meat on the bones I have talked about.
