Re: Is it just my computer or is the Internet slow?

Re: Aircraft Advanced Electronics

Ugh, I thought you meant control electronics. I'm waiting to tour the first new model of passenger liner where I can't find the cockpit 'cause ... there isn't one. Unmanned planes would save a bit of money on lights, screens, switches and guages but [more]

Re: Question about expansion

Probably valid points methinks, warrl. I've never been exposed to circumstances anything like we (or the Japanese, or the Europeans) are faced with today, so I see the future through a murky lens. It's all above my pay grade but I'd like to ensure [more]

What the numbers show

The latest numbers from the IRS—based on just released data from 2011 tax returns—show what it takes to be among the top 1% of income earners: adjusted gross income of $388,905 or more. That’s 5.2% higher than

Re: OT: 3-d FYI Bulletin

It doesn't always take a huge following or a micro-cap stock to move the needle, part of the outcome can come down to fate. Just last week, Friday, I believe, a doctor who has only done appeared there once or twice before, posted a long technical [more]

OT: 3-d FYI Bulletin

Just in case you're interested (no true Value Hound should be, but perhaps some of us aren't religious as others) 3-d printing companies have gone over the cliff recently but survived, and now all are on a real tear. Not that any of them would be [more]

I always point out my failures in hopes of learning something, so maybe it's fair to point out a win occasionally too. If not, tough--sorry.
