AIM: # 2 Posted on 18.7.02 0901.51 | Instant Rating: 0.00 Nah, they misbooked a small amount of revenue (2%) which is negligable in a company that size. Don't forget that they have a real company behind them the has real revenues. Not to say that it isn't a big deal but they are not in trouble.

AIM: # 3 Posted on 18.7.02 1202.07 Well, AOL/Time Warner is not in trouble as a unit, but Time Warner merging with the fly-by-night AOL was a huge fucking mistake that has made it worth a lot less than it was by itself.

Kinda interesting facts: If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00. With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original $1,000.00. With Worldcom, you would have less than $5.00 left. If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of Stella (the beer, not the stock) one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the bottles for a 5c deposit, you would have $107.00. Based on the above, current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. .

That makes my complaint about too much snow on my road seem a bit trivial now.
