|Jul-04-17|| ||WannaBe: <thegoodanarchist> Good Luck in Reno!! Put $2 on the Hard 13 for me. =))|
|Jul-04-17|| ||technical draw: That's bad advice <Wannabe> is giving you. Here's the real deal: When someone is coming out place a heavy bet on hard-way 8. That's the best little bet in town.|
|Jul-05-17|| ||WannaBe: Bitcoin heist on the dark web (?!)
|Jul-06-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: Outstanding day today at the craps tables. Up $800 and I walked with it.|
Also the Reno Aces are at home and I saw the Wednesday game against Tacoma.
The visitors took an early lead with 2 runs in the top of the first, but the Aces took the lead for good with 4 in the fifth, including a three-run homer.
Game ended with a Tacoma batter striking out, and a final score of 6-3.
|Jul-06-17|| ||WannaBe: <thegoodanarchist> Cool beans, when I stay at Harrah's sometimes I get a room that looks right at the Aces' field. =)|
There is a Pho Noodle place right across the street (next to the liquor store) that's pretty good and cheap.
Else you can walk to Club CalNeva for some cheap food, too!!
Be there in 2 month for football kick-off. Pai-Gow table, here I come. Wheeeeeee.
|Jul-06-17|| ||WannaBe: Bithumb (S. Korea based) exchange have been hacked, reports of people losing their Bitcoins. (which are virtually untraceable...)|
Will post more as details emerges.
|Jul-06-17|| ||technical draw: I better check my pockets <WannaBe>. All I have are a few bit of coins.|
|Jul-09-17|| ||WannaBe: LAD enters the All Star break with best record in MLB. Ugh!!!|
Remember what happened to SFG last year!??!
|Jul-10-17|| ||WannaBe: This is 'cute'. I read that Snapchat (SNAP) have closed Monday's trading $16.95 below IPO price $17.00 Some have speculated that is because the lock out period's ending soon.|
So, I got curious and wondering how long a lock out period is for IPO stocks. Turns out it varies, anywhere from 90 to 180 days.
And also it's (fairly) common for the price of the stock to fall and volume of trading to go up first day after lock out expiration. (Early investors want to cash in their chips and collect some profit!!)
And this lock out period is not SEC rule, it's company and the under writing bank(s) that determine how long it is. (Did not know that...)
So I learned all that from this article: http://www.investopedia.com/ask/ans...
Funny thing is, (if you didn't read the article), the first day after lock out ended, FB fell to a low of $19.69 which was about <HALF> the initial IPO price! Half!?
Oh, today, FB closed at $153.50, aren't you glad you sold shares to get IPO profit? =))
|Jul-11-17|| ||WannaBe: Patent trolls and Cloudflare's battle to bring them down.|
|Jul-12-17|| ||WannaBe: Beam me up, Scotty!!
|Jul-12-17|| ||WannaBe: Robots replacing lawyers?!!?
|Jul-12-17|| ||WannaBe: Theranos putting their building up for lease.
Hilarious, I must have driven by there dozens and dozens of times from 280 to go to Frys Electronics, and didn't even realize that was HQ of Theranos!
|Jul-14-17|| ||WannaBe: Patent Trolls Smack-Down!!! =)
|Jul-15-17|| ||WannaBe: Yikes, only 40 Years Young. Very Sad.

|Jul-31-17|| ||WannaBe: Lockup period for SNAP ended last night, brisk trading, shares fell 1.15% thus far this morning. Currently trading below IPO price.|
|Jul-31-17|| ||WannaBe: Details on SNAP and lockup period:
What just expired was early investor lockup period, employee's lockup will be in 2 weeks after earning report. (According to the article)
|Aug-02-17|| ||WannaBe: SNAP short-sellers are cashing in their chips as high interest (borrowing) rate cuts into short-selling profit.|
|Aug-02-17|| ||WannaBe: SNAP IPO was $24, on March 2, 2017. Today, it closed at $12.65|

From start to finish, took my PC 2+ hours to complete, with 5 different reboots and my taskbar became transparent... Ugh.
|Aug-09-17|| ||WannaBe: The updates also screwed up my taskbar text colour, went from white to black and I couldn't see the clock/time.|
Had to reset my settings on that, too. Ugh.
