Buy solid stocks, reap yearly dividends. If you have to sell, wait for
a high *year*. Although I just bought $10000+ diversified (blue chip)
stocks before the attack they're still up on the purchase price.

The problem is that no-one has been able to figure out the value of many
tech stocks. Comapnies that sell hardware - IBM, Apple, Sun, sure, can
be measured against the sale of their product. Strong software sellers,
eg. M$ also sell OK. Nebulous web service companies, online journalism,
open source ???.

Looks more like 5500.
