Over on the DELL board last year, we had a DELL employee lamenting the
fact that he had sold $5,000 worth of DELL stock to take his wife on a
Lake Tahoe ski vacation in 1992. Value today of $5,000 worth of DELL
stock bought in 1992? A little over $1 million.

I have just about gotten to the point where I learn
from my mistakes more often than I regret them. Sure,
the $1000 that I spent in 1985 on a now-unused camera
would be worth 1.3 gazillion dollars if I had bought

But I didn't. Can't be changed. Now what's for dinner?
