Thanks Scythen:

That's very helpful information. I became aware of this company when my wife, who has a retail business, began to research point-of-sale systems. We were very impressed by Radiant's products and services. Anyway, when I heard about Radiant's deal with AOL I became very interested in the company as an investor.

I put the stock on my watchlist when it was in the low 20's. It worried me at first that the liquidity was so poor in the stock and that it had had such a big run-up recently. However, I knew the company had great products and when I saw this B2B announcement I bought some shares at $33. My intention is to buy more when I learn more about these efforts.

I like the new direction the company is taking but I'd like to learn more about how it intends to market their site and new services. The B2B market is hot and there is a lot of competiton. Unless Radiant can sign up a lot of companies right away and get some real activity on their site, this investment may simply add up to naught. Just setting up an auction place is not enough these days. Marketing is key.

Do you know anything about its advantages in this regard (how to get a lot of activity on the site)?

Anyway, I appreciate your information and I wish you good luck at RS. Make sure you work for stock, my friend.

All best,
