I'll be the first to post to here.

America Online has been pretty strong through a weak quarter for technology stocks. (That follows a very weak period for it during a strong year -- 1996 -- for technology stocks.!

I am amused by a financial newsletter's suggestion yesterday that AOL may offer to buy Compuserve. Anybody else see any real point to this? I don't see enough of one... especially not for $1 billion.

Was AOL ever about to buy Prodigy... at ANY point? Would that EVER have been a good move?

Great to have Fool message boards on the Web. Hope we all enjoy them.
