heya Tones,

I'm glad to see projectAllende is still underway, safe, and writing away as happily and anarchistically as ever!

This is the second post where you talk about the purchase of stock with cash (see Cocaine Economies).

It is fascinating to think of our major stock exchanges are getting fatter and fatter, even in lean times where very corporate conglomerate who pays almost no taxes is moving jobs abroad to be "more competitive", by laundering dirty money! Or at least with money that isn't really money due to false exchange rates manipulated by various governmental agencies.

I love reading your posts. I hope you and Claire are being careful. it sounds as if you are. What an adventure.

by the time you get back I may well have spent the same period of time doing nothing but taking legally prescribed drugs.

I am still not back to work, but cherry-picking in a pseudo job-hunting mode. I am looking pretty much only at SF and Denver.

When I finally do feel mentally fit to get back to work it certainly isn't going to be for IBM. Well, maybe only for the 30 days it takes me get riffed (which will allow me to collect another year's worth of IBM options, my vesting curiously not having been interrupted by my medical leave of absence).

I talk to Thomas frequently. And Ryan B, through Thomas every now and again. We all miss you.

regards,

tV
