hey bruce,
just enjoyed another of your posts. reading your messages is always worthwhile. thank you helping raise the quality of these boards to a level of excellence.

after a few years of futzin' around, have settled into a buy and hold approach starting 1 year ago. have spread most of my investments out all over techland, eg.
aol emc msft dell lu wcom csco txn amat orcl amgn yhoo sch nok intc.....my plan is to hold on thru thick and thin for at least 5 years.
I know at least a few people who tell me I'm nuts. this whole technology investing thing is gonna crash and burn. these are smart people talking too.
I think I'll take my chances though. god knows I'll never get rich ( which I spell FREE) as a working stiff.
best of luck,
chas
