Wow, it's nice to see that some of the old folks are still lurking from time to time. Adam, I've set your avatar to something resembling the old one. Not sure when those got dumped.

Thanks!

I still lurk regularly. Just don't have much to add, so not a big poster these days.

The truth is I've been extremely busy on my start-up and have no time to look at investment stuff much. I check my portfolio maybe quarterly for tax planning reasons. I don't read any investment news, but watching the headlines pop up over and over about stock market highs gives me that 2000 feeling all over again.

I've seen some of your intrusion detection presentations on YouTube!

It's an interesting industry and is basically recession proof. The worse the economy gets, the more criminals come out online to make a buck.

Many excellent posts in this Topic including a re-appearance by Craig (which seems to have been his last appearance here).

Anyone who gave predictions want to revise / change those predictions?
