Regarding chatting in other threads, I prefer to hang out here amongst those I met at other "SIRI-related" places, and I resist the notion to go to other threads for talk outside of SIRI. I actually have come to enjoy the interchange about other stocks of interest within my bretheren. I'll venture over to Market Watch, but only when someone here has pointed me there.
I have no plans for a three-day weekend here. In fact, I'd prefer to have an active market on monday to try to wish my holdings back into the green. That's my two cents. Enjoy the weekend, all.
