  9. Hey Funky

    I used to work right around the corner from you. An Internet company called Organic.com moved their office to Townsend
    before they laid-off a *hit-load of people.

    I'm in the East Bay now. Alameda.

    Give me a ring if you are ever want to swap ideas.

    I just trade the e-minis though, so couldn't talk to the equities
    market much..
