Slope initially began as a blog, so this is where most of the website’s content resides. Here we have tens of thousands of posts dating back over a decade. These are listed in reverse chronological order. Click on any category icon below to see posts tagged with that particular subject, or click on a word in the category cloud on the right side of the screen for more specific choices.
Preface to all eight parts: This year was an extraordinary one for the world and an amazing one for Slope. Our user base has grown, our site has dozens more features, and we are poised for a great 2021, which will be our sixteenth year in business. Out of the thousands of posts this year, we have picked some we believe you will enjoy re-reading the most.
It has been a grim year and I, and many others, will be very glad to leave it behind, but even with maximum lockdown spreading rapidly across the UK with the new virus mutation, I have a great holiday weekend planned with roaring fires, presents, great food, homemade pancakes, (probably too much) chocolate, board games and so on. My soon to be ex-wife will be absent but my three children, two cats, and one dog will all be here having a great time and there is a good chance that this will be the most enjoyable Christmas that we have had so far this millenium. I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve had requests for a family video of us making pancakes over the holiday that I may well film on New Year’s Day and post on YouTube. 🙂
The launch of SlopeMatrixis only hours old, but we’ve already made quite a few improvements with respect to speed and memory load. An important new feature will be out by next week, but in the meanwhile, I wanted to point out that for paying members the icons located on the right side of any quote give you instant access to that symbol’s Market Meter…….
Given a choice, I’m sure plenty of the public would love to never see a Zoom screen once this year is behind us. The equity is starting to reflect this. Even in the midst of this new-highs-every-day market, ZM has lost one-third of its value.
This is almost beyond belief. I bicycled to Whole Foods on Tuesday afternoon to get a few items. Below is a movie I took of the line. Keep in mind, this is a weekday afternoon. It isn’t a last-minute rush just before Christmas. This is just normal life. I’ve never seen it this bad, not even in March. I ditched this place for a small local grocery where the line was exactly zero people long.
