Everybody inside the company very optimistic as well as busy. I understand that Marketing and Sales guys (Dave Cox and Brian Nimo) are so busy that they will not be able to attend the Philadelphia conference on Monday. I did talk to CA people and I was told that there are several announcements coming within hours concerning IAI. All good and very significant staff. I am under impression that in addition to CA languages, IAI will also remidiate IDBMS
Cobol for CA which is another 30bil. lines of code.

i don't know if many of you realize how much potential this company really has, management is real sharp. I just wish that they would get thru the beta tests and announce who the beta's have been. BTW the private placement was completed at the time when the stock was very low, however if you go thru the documents you will notice that one hedge fund that is very close to George Soros ( yes thats him) i believe took over 200000 shs. This diamond is
about to be discovered, i believe there is also a very large short position that could be squeezed at any time. stay long and stay tuned
