October 16th is National Boss Day in the U.S.

What a scam.

When's national "Guy we dump crap on" day? I want my card.

Today they told us that our medical insurance would cover less and cost more.

O.k.-- this negativity spat will pass.

Any of you hosers up on this company Ballard that is going to start selling hydrogen power cells for consumer use? Cool.

Been watching Ballard since its shares sold for 17 cents... before they split... damn i wish i'd had money to throw around back then.

When's national "Guy we dump crap on" day? I want my card.

Every weekend, my friend. Every weekend. *sigh* *realises that its only Monday*

If they market this stuff correctly, make the right partnerships and can move the technology along they are going to make a killing and will dominate a market that could be huge.

The article I read said that they have plans for larger units that would power a city block. That's incredible. If it can be made cost effective, the dependancy on oil will evaporate.

I'm just jazzed about a portable generator that doesn't make noise. I can already picture it-- camping in the beautiful mountain air under a toasty electric blanket and only the sounds of nature around me.

That's really cool - where can I read more?

www.ballard.com is the company that makes these cool things.

Slashdot ran this last Friday and there are some interesting comments to be read there. Just do a search on articles using the word "ballard" and you will find it.
