Richard,

I'm so glad to have somebody here to disagree with. And I will disagree with you about Rambus.
While it is true that Intel is looking at PC133 for now, it is only temporary and a stopgap measure
until prices of Rambus comes down and capacity goes up. One of the problems is that Dell is
absorbing 2/3 of the currently available chips, so you can't really say that "the rest of the industry
is dropping it for PC133." From what I understand, there is no comparison with speed between
PC133 and Rambus. You might also check out Samsung's site and their commitment to Rambus.
A number of companies have spent millions for development platforms for Rambus.

Yes, it's true that I own Rambus stock, and wish that I had waited to buy it until things were
humming more. But I don't plan to sell and this might not be a bad time to buy.

As for buying FRND, you would be better served(pun intended) buying their ice cream
rather than their stock. Their historical price chart is truly frightening:

Thanks for the input,

Rick
