    If anything I would prefer to pay when I file.

    So you say. Last year, My wife and her new business partners first underestimated receipts, and then to make matters worse decided to hold on to some earnings and establish a "rainy day fund". Long story short, you have no idea how painful it is to stroke a check to the US Treasury for 87 fucking thousand dollars! Don't ever self finance - revolving line of credit is the way to go.

    Ah well, it was a fun gamble

    I find it remarkable in that during a time when the market went up approx. 30%, you managed to find (and invest in) a stock that lost over 60% of its value. This (and your decision not to buy 15 years ago in Palo Alto) are your only two publicly announced financial moves. Are you always so snakebitten?

    Its interesting, almost none of my transactional clients (the actual business owners & founders) have an MBA. Many are either college graduates or the all encompassing "some college" category. Moreover, as long as they stay small (10-70M in revenues) they have very few MBAs on staff. Its really only once you get over say 100M in revenues that I run into a lot more MBAs, at least as far as private companies go. Even then we are still talking about middle management here - the guys at top are still largely non MBAs.
