Sure, the momentum funds hiccupped today. But no one ever got real sick from hiccups. (At least that I know of.)

We are still trying to get in our little positions. We started an

E.piphany

(EPNY)

position down 9, and a

Tibco Software

(TIBX)

down 15. But we let some

Akamai

(AKAM) - Get Report

go up 30.

One of my closest friends reminds me that Akamai means "smart" in Hawaiian. But when I asked the room what it meant when we rung the register, Jeff blurted out, "Profits!"

I guess it now means that, too!

board is heating up. I think it is a legitimate B2B'er, but there are others who disagree and still others who think it is just plain dumb.

is anxiously trying to get the

board going, but it seems stone cold.
