Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Should techies and geeks be buying technology stocks now? Why not they are on sale, and on fire. I have made some good choices just by watching and reading. I wanted to buy VMW when I saw it for 94.00 a share, I waited and then it went to 125.00 the next week. Go to reuters.com for stock info.http://reuters.com


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

I thought, damn I should have bought it, but today on news that Oracle is doing something similar their stock dropped like 50 big ones. So I am glad I did not wade in there. I bought Oracle instead today. I thought VMW too expensive but that is not the only reason for not buying a stock.

I sold my ebay stock short, and nokia and akam too. They all dropped. But even though yahoo! dropped I think it is a keeper. I have one share in google. THat's a sad story because I planned to buy tons of it when it was offered but I didn't.

Good news: Visa is about to go public. I thought it was today but could not find it.

Then there is apple, I am mad as hell about apple stocks, I have a few apples in the barrel because they are expensive. But guess what it is also a 5 star rated stock. It is a keeper too. I have included my stocks holdings as disclaimer here.

Today, Cramer is saying buy Halliburton. I wrote my article yesterday about the natural gas glut that is coming. I don't have stock in Halliburton but I have royalties coming directly from the gas lease I signed for the gas under the ground under my house instead!

People don't buy the oil and gas futures hype. Why? Because there is a oil and natural gas glut coming thanks to the wonders of horizontal drilling.

If Bush dropped Sadaam for his oil, then I say where the hell is IT?
