We traded over a billion shares on the NYSE today!!! w00t!

Anyway, most people didn't trade.

Since I can't offer much market color, I'll give you a quick update on my status.

My paperwork is currently flying in the air to my new company for processing. I will not be up and trading by the 2nd of January. I'm guessing that the 7th is much more probable.

I'm bored. I've been writing a lot, just not market stuff. Next week I have a post all cued up for Trading Goddess... that is, unless things get really desperate at the Peanut Gallery and I need to post it there.

Speaking of the Peanut Gallery, if you have nothing else to do, go vote my posts 5 stars so I can win "top peanut" and get on with 2008 already.

Enjoy your weekend. I don't expect many people to be around this weekend (things are currently very quiet in Blogistan) but I'll throw an Open Thread up just in case you have anything to share.

Fuck The Robots

Now that Christmas is behind us, you may find yourself wasting countless hours speaking with customer service robots.

Thankfully for you (loyal reader) I hate robots and so I've found a couple of sites that help you get through the annoying phone trees that now plague our nation's customer service departments.

First of all, there's Bringo. They navigate the phone tree for you.

Then, there's Gethuman. This is just a website with directions on what numbers you enter onto the phone to get around the robots. They have a database with directions for over 500 customer service lines all neatly categorized.

Happy calling.

Great Revenge Video Sequence

I'm pretty much chilling out and trying to write funny stuff while Judy and my daughter food shop. So, occasionally, I surf the net. I found these gems...
