This is a little late, but it was too funny not to share:
I wanted to ask you, I remeber a blog that you wrote about a year ago about Barnes N' Noble being a special situtation. I was sceptikal at the time.
I wen't surfing through your blog so I could give credit where credit is due. I could'nt find it do you rememeber that piece and what month it was from.
Good memory Harry. Thanks for giving me the credit. The author of the article that I linked awhile ago bought Barnes and Noble for $15/share. Shockingly he's actually made a profit. Kudos to him because I never had the guts to buy it, even in CAPS. I suppose that it makes sense as a technology play if one likes the Nook.

Here's the link:
I thought this was going to be about Hawaiian Airlines.
Funny, but isn't it also true?
I remember reading something about how they didn't actually "predict the end of the world" but how that's simply when their calendar stopped. The author compared it to the Y2K problem on PCs.
