I wasn’t sure what to think when this Oasis change occured and am glad you chose to respond. You contibuted so much to ths site in the past. There is quite a history for the Tent and I have felt a close kinship to many here, met some in Georgia, had a wonderful gathering at the Inn with you and Mme Crowne, adventures with Irish in Belize (whom I still think of often}. There are so many memories. Good memories seem to become more important as time goes by. I have not been posting for a long time, yet check into the Tent vitually every day. Anyway, great to see your comments here and will maybe see you at the Oasis-I know I will a the Rambus site. I hope to meet with you in person again someday.
Goldbugs"There is only a relatively small group of investors who very seriously believe that there is a high level of risk that the (financial) system could break down. You only need a relatively small group to believe this to move the price of gold." In other words, the metal's price behavior reflects the trivial obsessions of a discredited fraction of investment opinion. -Alan Greenspan
