|Jan-01-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: I can see why so many folks move to California. I am in NY now, and it is brutally cold. Has been for two weeks and we have another week to go before we have a chance to reach 32 F.|
I used to love this kind of weather, but now I want to live in Costa Rica.

Mass exodus in the future?>
Sounds like liberals fleeing liberalism.
|Jan-03-18|| ||WannaBe: Intel chips have a design flaw that is vulnerable to hackin', and to wit, have a funny acronym, Forcefully Unmap Complete Kernel With Interrupt Trampolines, or @#$%WIT.|
|Jan-04-18|| ||WannaBe: Microsoft have released an emergency patch for the previously posted vulnerability, going to install it on my Win10 Professional OS. |
Will report back later on (any) performance issues and what-nots.
|Jan-04-18|| ||WannaBe: Well, it's been almost 5 hours since I did the update/patch, so far so good.|
(This patch can only be downloaded if you have Win10, other versions of Windows have to wait until 1/9 for the Tuesday Windows Patch)
|Jan-05-18|| ||WannaBe: Insiders are selling their share of Uber to Softbank at 30% discount. And there were more shares willing to be sold than Softbank wanted to buy.|
|Jan-08-18|| ||WannaBe: GoPro to exit drone camera bidness, slash staff, GoPro also announced 4th Qtr revenue of $340M, down $200M from 4th Qtr of a year earlier (That's 37% short-fall)|

|Jan-08-18|| ||chessmoron: I'm very impressed of how a Chinese company, DJI (models like the Phantom and Mavic), has pretty much seated on top of commercial drones.|
Pretty much every youtubers who vlogs used DJI products.
|Jan-08-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: <WannaBe: Insiders are selling their share of Uber to Softbank at 30% discount. And there were more shares willing to be sold than Softbank wanted to buy.|
The Uber business model seems unprofitable to me. Seems like it is even *not possible* for it to ever be profitable.
Might be best to buy AMZN instead.
|Jan-08-18|| ||Big Pawn: How about shorting pump and dumps? That can be fun.|
|Jan-09-18|| ||WannaBe: I believe in ol' school, give me value, book value, intrinsic value, tru-value, dividends, profit ratio, debt ratio, golden ratio, book to value ratio, forward looking profit ratio...|
Disclaimer, I own shares of BRK-B
|Jan-09-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: < Big Pawn: How about shorting pump and dumps? That can be fun.>|
Yes, it can. But that is speculation, not investing.
At this point in my life, I have enough going on that I am not looking for additional "fun".
To each his own, though.
|Jan-09-18|| ||WannaBe: PCs with AMD processor chip (CPU) not working after Microsoft Security Patch for chip flaws|
See if you have AMD Chip, right click on "My Computer" -> Properties then look for "Processor". Before you try to update your system.
|Jan-09-18|| ||WannaBe: Consumer Electronic Show (CES), annual event that takes place at Las Vegas. Google have this outdoor booth.|
Unfortunately, it rained, and everything had to be tarp'd up and booth is currently closed.
I am literally laughing my fanny off.
