Little did we know when MEGA kept bringing up VROOM he was giving us all a secret stock tip!

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjI9bH8vILrAhUGa80KHRJ3B14QFjABegQIARAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Ffinance.yahoo.com%2Fquote%2FVRM%2Fchart%3Fp%3DVRM&usg=AOvVaw3vFywosIZTjKVNOXLm1prT

The stock is way way up over the last couple of months.

Perhaps give us a few more hints next time MEGA so we dont miss out again.

@DiscreetFX
Not a bad stock performance for a business that loses money. VRM's revenue keeps growing but their earnings are growing more negative at the same time. This is like an Amiga business that loses money on every Amiga computer sold. If more Amigas are sold, their revenue goes up but their earnings go down. They have a failed business model although this could be solved by reducing costs, expanding markets, raising prices, finding developers to work for free, etc. VRM is a speculative stock even though there is a lot of potential in the market they are attempting to enter. People should educate themselves and do their own research or buy an S&P 500 index fund. Personally, I recommend value dividend investing instead of trying to time the market with growth stocks. Buy solid stocks with a 2%-5% dividend that have growth and a history of increasing dividends.

@DiscreetFX

Friend DiscreetFX,
you are really unfamiliar with the concept of "amusing", I reckon.

Your post would have had a semblance of fun if the name of that stock, or the link, or any part of what you found actually matched what I often write. But it does not, because I never write "Vroooom".

Here, let me pull up a little explainer for you:

(same spelling) + (same context) = Not fun
(same spelling) + (different context) = Fun
(wrong spelling) + (same context) = Tease
(wrong spelling) + (different context) = Not fun

Hope this helps,
MRJM

Jesus Christ, friend matthey,
it appears you are serial rambler, aren't you, yes?

Whether it is cpu architectures or stock, you won't miss a chance to jump on that soapbox and start lecturing the masses with a splurge of numbers and jargon and percentages.

Here, here, have another topic on me all choke full of numbers and stats!

80 calories is a bit high for just one cookie, don't you think? I'm sitting here at my non-luxurious flat-pack desk, drinking a 16 oz. can of Mtn Dew Kickstart, and the entire can is only 80 calories.

Maybe VROOOOOOOM is the sound Amiga makes when a ZORRAM is inserted!

@MrFrench

Most treasured friend MrFrench,

I am truly unclear as to why everyone keeps referencing this "zorram" thing to over and over again, and making sure to write it all in capital letters every single time.

I hope you can shed some light on this mystery of my Amigaworld dot net days.

regards as warm as a David Doyle's heart,
MRJM

I merely used the reference in jest of the enigmatic manifestations of the term...I really have no idea why ZORRAM references are posted (damn it happened again!) , maybe it is some sort of marketing schema.

Cheers to you, friend and point maker!

MEGA_RJ_MICAL is a raving facsimile of the 'SNK vs Capcom: SVC Chaos' character Violent Ken! Yes, he dresses up as a famous Amiga Corp. Engineer but he spouts the same incoherent 'smack talk' as the aforementioned Capcom character:

@BigD

This is the greatest thread on Amigaworld.net in years.
It has onomatopoeia, cookies, songs about Mountain Dew by demented songwriters.

It's a thing of beauty.
You and beauty don't really go well together that much.

Please stay away from it, eh?

Your ese,
MEGA_RJ_MICAL

... the real RJ is a beautiful human being, Ken Masters is a fairly good chap though his 'violent' alter ego is a bit of a 'freak on a leash' if you ask me but your avatar (and fictional persona) my friend is a mixed up car crash of them both! Don't lecture me about beauty!

However, "Lab Lablabl bl a". Wouldn't "Lab Lablabl ab l" be more consequent?
How about this?


void MegaBlaGen(char *s)
{
const char *bla="BLA";
while(*s) {
char small=*s & 0x20;
*s&=~small;
if(*s>='A' && *s < = 'Z') { // had to move the < = apart for AmigaWorld not to explode
*s=*bla++;
if(!*bla) bla-=3;
}
*s++|=small;
}
}
