Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

And why do people continue talk of a vaccine? Isn't that nearly impossible? Isn't it more like a flu shot, which might be protective, and might not? IIRC, most of the reason a flu shot sometimes works and sometimes doesn't is that they have to guess what strains of flu will be popular in the coming...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Why does it seem like some places are doubling down? --Social distancing might be needed through 2022 --Concerts and sporting events not until 2021 --etc. I've seen some things out to 2025?! And why do people continue talk of a vaccine? Isn't that nearly impossible? Isn't it more like a flu shot, wh...

I won’t provide anymore advice unless I see evidence you’ve done your homework on an option. You should know what you are doing before you do any of them.
+1 million. Please know what you are doing.

Re: Stock scream room

Well the S&P closed right at that 2850 level I've been eyeing for the last couple of weeks, on the eve of a whole slew of economic data being released and on the week of options expiration. The next week is going to be very interesting... So what do you think will result? Up or down? Biased because...

Re: Stock scream room

Instead we designed the Tungsten T series of PDAs. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palm_Tungsten#Tungsten_T) and before that the m500/505 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palm_m500_series) the first color Palm. Oh yes, I remember those models, though I never personally owned either one. I had several ...

Re: Stock scream room

CT-Scott, We were Palm's Chicago design group. Maxed out at about 35 engineers. We were "supposed" to come out with Palm's first real cell phone (after the Palm 7 wireless), let me say *many* years before the iPhone. But internal management struggles with the Seattle (Palm 7) and CA groups kept us f...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The number that makes it more real is barrett noting it is killing about 25% more people per day in the US right now.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I don’t know if I specifically asked this before, but since the entire world deaths have passed 100k I figured I’d ask. I have these questions, from a very much slanting toward what the hell are we doing? —world loses 150k people a day normally. If we are conservative and say this has been going on ...
