chop chop

that last email from DD sounds ominous, but is not surprising. Oil is in the 20s... that means it is time to cut jobs. You got to wonder if MDR will make it out of chapter 11.

Why would the stock be fully canceled and be worth nothing? The company will continue to operate, and new stock will be issued, so why would it not transfer to the new stock? Don’t know much about stock, this is unfortunately from my time with... —  read more

Did they lock our cell phone accounts?

Colombia still hanging over us

That mess has not been fully resolved and hasn't helped the stock price. Will those two clowns be sent back to face the music? Getting that resolved will help our rep!
