Joel deleted thread because of his bad prediction?
I don't know if it was in this forum or the Ask Joel forum, but a few days back someone asked whether Google would do a Dutch Auction and Joel countered that they wouldn't because by taking a non-traditional route they would scare away many investors.
Actually I deleted it because I wasn't happy with my response, which amounted to not much more than showing off and very little useful insight.
Ok since you said it, come clean, how did you get the Google shares? Are you a member of an Angel group or something?

This new humble amenable Joel persona is worrying. Has he been kidnapped by aliens or something?
People are never happy, no matter what you do!
[I was referring to Stephen's post!]
JD, at least I am happy after these comments. lol

The accent would get on your nerves eventually anyway...
Not all Aussies have accents like Crocodile Dundee or the Crocodile Hunter. People with those irritating accents are mostly found in the country or in Victoria or on Baywatch.
I love Aussie accents. Especially that cute kid who was nominated for Oscar. I forgot her name.
Her name is Keisha Castle-Hughes - and she's bl@@dy hell from New Zealand, which is (against all other ideas you might have) NOT a part of Australia
Is there enough of a difference between Aussie and Kiwi accents to tell them apart?
Oh, there certainly is a difference ... it's maybe not as strong a between American and British English, but imagine a Canadian talking to someone from New York ;)
