I think some UK people say its better for bad weather / snow etc.

Binder is also a bugger to wear in. You can forget about stretching it like calf... I remember a relative wore his brand new pair of Church's Burwoods to a wedding and was crippled before we even got to the reception. 5 years later and he reckons he still hasn't worn them in properly.

Thanks for all you input

The last time he saw something that thick it was probably the armor on a T-34.

yeah - i've got a very nice looking pair i got vintage /used online a longtime ago and they turned out to be binder when the seller told me they weren't. At least half a size too small and don't feel like they would stretch at all. I'd wear them a bit if they fitted. I should offer them up to someone instead of leaving them at back of cupboard.

edit - this is them. I'd say about a 8UK - 8.5UK

When the bid was $3.30 there were 258m shares on issue and now there are 479m shares on issue so in like for like terms the bid was about $1.78 or so.

A captial raising either costs you money as a shareholder (read you pay the company) or dilutes your share. If you don't participate you get FXH's figure (-78% return). Otherwise if you take your max allotment you get a (.72*13/ {3.30*7+1.02*6})-1 (-68% return). [All other factors have been ignored because I'm lazy].

No - why would he get banned - being grumpy isn't reason for banning - I hope - gerry and I have had a lot to do with him on the sekret back channels.

I think he finally realised this was Australian Members not Austrian?

Yeah I though you would know. Never had a lot to do with him but our few exchanges were pleasant, but I also know he rubbed a lot of people up the wrong way. Just haven't seen him post at all even in the other threads for about a month though and don't read any of the other forums enough to notice if he is over at one of them.

Not the old PS interview matrix spreadsheet where you work backwards to score so that the acting person gets the job and its all the parts but no whole?

Yes, as i said, declined significantly in value but pointing out the capital raising hence not a like for like measure. Id hope my super fund would take their full allocation rather than get diluted away!

Either way, the PE firm looked and walked away

Avoiding work is getting harder and harder - it's actually hard work in itself. Some days I think I would be better off just doing it.
