A break in the action, finally, so here is a collection of links that should contain something for everyone:
1. An Interview with Ray Kurzweil. This was posted to another forum by my friend and accountant, Gene Prescott.
"If it were up to the Luddites, human life expectancy would still be 37, and we'd still be dying from bacterial infections," says Ray Kurzweil in this wide-ranging interview. The anti-technology movement "is fundamentally misguided, because it fails to appreciate the profound benefits technology has brought."
2. My new cell phone.
3. Terry Laundry's T Theory, Update.
"Some time ago (see Archives) I reviewed the details of the current big A-D T's construction and compared it to the comparable A-D T coming out of the 1932 bottom to illustrate the basic time symmetry concept. In that analysis I showed that the multiple bottoms in late 2002/early 2003 should be taken as an overall bottom formation and the center of the T should split this bottom range. The left end of these Ts is always at the prior A-D line peak which is very obvious in the chart. Thus the left side of this T is well defined by a cash build up period of about 4.5 years. Assuming inherent time symmetry, which is the fundamental basis of all Ts, then the market advance in stock prices (the S&P) should persist within the right side of the T for an identical time period; that is from the '03 low to the projected market peak, computed to be near March 2007."
4. My new wheels*.
Endless power from either snarling V8 combined with a tight suspension results in a sports car that never ceases to put a smile on your face. All three of the suspension packages deliver a compliant ride along with white-knuckled handling abilities. The C6 is a comfortable touring car, as well as a world-class performance machine. The Z06 version is an unforgettable monster on the street."
*Subject to an end to winter.
5. Trading. If the rest of 2006 is as good as the first 19 days have been to me and my accounts, I should be able to buy a set of those wheels for all of you.
