You know what's scary about all this?

It won't be too many more years before the first software I wrote would turn 40 (although I'm sure it doesn't exist any more)!

Re: QPP

Im lost why would you worry about Cenkos, QPP is a fractional fraction of there business

Re: Winnifrith on QPP

It seems that approximately 18% of QPP's shares have been traded in the past five days (using trading volumes from Yahoo! and my own calculations).

Not really sure what that says, but I found it interesting.
