This is a day late, but it's valuable information for translators thinking about retiring.

Retirement Planning Advice from St Pat

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.

With WorldCom, you would have less than $5.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling price, you would have $214.00.

Based on the above, current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

It's called the 401-Keg Plan

Very interesting... Were you lucky enough to go for that investment?

In any case, I am not retired, I am only tired...

...and if you had bought 1,000 shares in SDL one year ago, you would have noted that they cost about £ 0.30 and are now running at well over £ 1.20. Prosticon_smile.gif
