Well been a few days since an entry so here goes. I got the infamous 'letter' from the Deutsche Bank / Alex Brown people about the directed stock offer thingy. So naturally I went ahead opened the account. Then I get an email from them stating that I had the wrong account number and the correct on should be on its way. Some how or another the message telling me the corrected number arrived before the message telling me the incorrect number. Couple of emails/phone calls later got this sorted out.
Pricing day comes. No word from them, read an article on slashdot (i think) something about the range increasing blah blah blah. Get a mail telling me that I will be contacted tomrrow afternoon or I may call to confirm the price. So I go ahead and call, get informed I can get 40 more shares then the original 100. Did I want to do that. Sure, its only money. The lady I spoke to couldn't confirm the price but could confirm my allocation so I did. Next day rolls around I can in am to confirm the price. Yep it priced at $30.00 please remit $4200.00. Off to the bank I go to wire said funds to the broker.
I come home, get a message to call a friend of mine, so I call him, he informes me that lnux is trading at 300+ so that turned into a happy day. Now the paper work starts trickling in from all this madness. Lets hope in one of them is the check for the shares I sold. :)
