Why the Price of Gold will go Down.

Really? Do you believe in Gold?

Sooner or later Gold will drop in price. Slowly or quickly, it will fall. Do you know why?

Because  Gold is one of those things that has limited value. You can’t eat it. You can burn it for fuel.  Neither can you use it for clothing or shelter.  Well, you might build a barn out of gold, but it would not be any better than other materails.

What about being a good electrical conductor. The role is already taken by copper, which is widely used. Of course gold is much more resistant to oxidation. But a very thin layer of gold will make something rust proof. And other metals could be used instead.

So then, Why is gold prices\d so much higher that other metals? It is due the idea people have about its value. That think it is valuable and that makes it valuable. people think it is valuable.  When a large number of people start selling their gold for something needed, the price  will drop.

But what about the geld needed for electronics?  That need is very small compared to the amount of gold available.  Besides, other metals and alloys  can be used if needed.

Today, the greatest use of gold is in jewellery.  And even so the idea that it is beautiful and valuable is a product of out  imagination. There are metals that look as good and sell for a fraction of the price of gold.

Try this: Go to eBay and look for ‘fake gold jewelry’ and see lots of cheap snuff that looks good. The is not real need to own real gold jewelry.

When a large number of people start using practical thinking, the price will drop.

This kind of reasoning has been presented elsewhere. It it not real news at all. In time, it will happen. Gold will drop like a dead bird.

Meanwhile,  don’t listen to anyone telling you to buy gold. It is not a good idea at all.

 

 

What happened to Geek 9PM?

So it has been a while since I made a post here.
Let me explain what happened.

The service I was using somehow changed ownership and both of the sites I had are lost. Rather than file some kind of a complaint against the new owner, I did the best I could to try to work with him and get my sites up and running. Unfortunately, neither he was too busy to pay attention to my request or he didn’t understand what happened.
Apparently, when he took over the server he somehow thought that I owed him money. That was not true, I was already paid up and my subscription was not yet t due.
So, to make a long story short, I ended up buying a new service from another company. My feeling was that if he didn’t understand what I needed and he abruptly cut me off without sufficient warning, I would have better off getting service from somebody else.
Would you like to hear more about my experiences trying to get good web host service at a low cost?
I think I’m going to try to sell web hosting myself. By paying more money to a better firm they will let me resell some part of the web space to other people. I think this is a good idea.
If you might be interested, you can contact me with the following e-mail address :

kohn@geek9pm.net
or
geek9pm@aol.com

my intent is to offer basic see panel web hosting for about $.80 a month or $9 for a full year.

I will have more  information later on.
