Our fund raising round was not successful.  As a result, IDB will be going off line and into cold storage.  If our competitors should stumble, I may re-active the site in the future but for now, we're turning out the lights.

I had planned to go off-line on April 4th.  Due to some important and unplanned changes in our maintenance schedule, I am now bumping that up to next Tuesday morning, March 27th, 2018.  PM 'admin' if you need to reach me. 

You should use the next 5 days to find a new home for your community.

Running IDB has been fun over the years and I hope you enjoyed your time here as well.  Sincerely,  Paul

P.S. News on IDB Funding -- this is now on it's own page to clean up the site a bit.

If you bought right, some CA E+P started to move but if you were previously donked.............

Your initial price paid will never be seen.


As an example, a CA woman started buying PWT in the $20's. She thought the divvy was secure and need the income.

There were numerous ill fated attempts an averaging down $12. $8, 5.

Suddenly, the position was 78% of her acciunt and the divvy went away.


PWE has some upside as does BTE and the less speculative names with better balance sheets and a track record of better decison making through the last cycle.

Howeve many will not see near their old highs.


On boards, one better listen to the right guru or you could get donked
