Here's a message I started writing on Mar 12, then postponed and
never finished. Might as well send it anyway...

I bought a few small/midcap tech stocks on Jan 25 based on
articles written by RightNow on motley fool boards:

   http://boards.fool.com/Profile.asp?username=RightNow

and just over a month later, I was ecstatic with their overall
performance: a couple of them had doubled, and just one was a bit
below its purchase price, the group of them up 83% overall.

At the time, I was planning to dump a few of my more conservative
stocks (IBM, AAPL, SNE) to load up on more of these little guys.

It's a good thing I didn't get around to doing that, since
they've been hit worse than everything else in the meantime.

Anyway, here are some rough notes I took on Mar 12:
