Random Buttons

  • Of course, I am watching the Pussycat Dolls reality show on the C-dub. Who would've anticipated a biological drama like this?  (They're spreading... the flu).  How come some of these girls didn't try out for American Idol?
  • Geekology...  In an effort to speed up my desktop, I added some RAM and removed some hogware.  What is hogware?  Software that sucks the life out of your computer by consuming an overwhelming share of resources.  For example: The Norton Antivirus Suite.  Now THAT will give your computer the flu.  Just removing that increased the performance quite a bit.  I let my subscription to Norton expire and then am trying some free trials of other products.  They're much quicker.  Not hogware. 
  • After that, I doubled the RAM on my desktop (to 2 gig).  My Telechart and Amibroker stock scanning software is flying now.
  • Liberal Larry weighs in on Ann Coulter's comments on John Edwards:  "To imply that John Edwards is a homosexual in a tone that would suggest homosexuality is wrong goes beyond the pale, especially after all the nice things that homosexuals have had to say about Ann over the years."
  • Just in case you missed Gary Kaltbaum calling the market top last tuesday, he reminds  us with his radio archive:   GARY CALLS WORLD MARKET TOP  AT NOON FEBRUARY 27, 2007.  Got it?  Lest there be any confusion, it's in CAPS, it's in bold, and it's underlined.  You can listen to the MP3 file online if you like.  GOT IT?
  • Back to the Pussycat Dolls.  One of the contestants is named "Asia."  Lets assume that's a birth name.  Who would name their kid "Asia?"  That's like hoping your kid grows up to be a stripper or a Pussycat Doll or something.  Jade.  Jasmine.  Asia.  Aren't these stripper names? 
  • I like this cartoon up at Barry's blog on bulls and bears.  I think that's what some of us are thinking.
  • On the Inevitable Bounce at Jason's, the sell signal is still on and he adds, "The momentum did moderate considerably in my system but we need to see a stall in one of the next three days to say that the selling is over. If we bounce from here in my system, the bulls should be wary because -1000 represents firm bottoms and we didn't get there yet."
  • Heheheh, "firm bottoms."
  • Don't forget the bottom line at Trading Goddess' site.  Muzak and thoughts on the market.   She wants volume, dammit!
  • Nice round number trading strategy from the dayshark.  There's a book title idea in there somewhere, Dave.
  • In sad news, a coworker who is not named Asia, is making a career change.  She's running off to be a network admin.  Last day is friday.  She's given me about 30 hugs so far this week, and it's only tuesday.  I'm really going to miss her. 
  • Barack Obama's stock portfolio.  Hat tip to Michelle, who also wonders about the speculative companies.   Hmm...  Also a column about it in the NY TimesOne of the companies was a biotech concern that was starting to develop a drug to treat avian flu. In March 2005, two weeks after buying about $5,000 of its shares, Mr. Obama took the lead in a legislative push for more federal spending to battle the disease.
