re: Headcount: Scary Times Continue Phil and LR Staff:
Thank you for the kind words, but please let me clarify, I was ALWAYS a good sport. Lynx has made some prudent budget decisions that allows them to ride through this wave of an industry recession. However, I am still on contract with Lynx to continue to support their continuing marketing efforts.

With hard times, comes opportunity. With Lynx as our first client, I have started my own communications consulting business (yet unnamed). Our goal is to help small start-ups, who don't have budgets for full-time staff, have as fun of a relationship with LR, and others, as Lynx continues to enjoy. Services will encompass both marketing communications and public relations.

I'll be seeing you soon....

re: Headcount: Scary Times Continue what tree did you fall off of? Let me guess. Either you are employed with them, or are an existing investor or have just got a call option on that company or have a friend who works for them that you are trying to help save his/her job.

re: Headcount: Scary Times Continue Every analyst is pushing strong sell. What do you know that the rest of the world does not. Hope you did not spend money exercising your options above TELM's current value. AMT = ouch.

re: Headcount: Scary Times Continue Haven't we heard this song before? Anything to impress the venture capitalists
that are stupid enough to invest in Zhone. Watch what will happen:
- The stinkers running Zhone will give the newly acquired employees a pep talk about
what a future they have with Zhone and how everyone will soon get rich with stock
options once the company goes IPO.
- As soon as Zhone legally can they will lay off the bulk of the employees,
especially the ones that actually contribute to the product line and can keep
the product developing. Yes the jet setters that do nothing 'cept fly around on private
jets and occupy empty offices will stay.
- Zhone will keep a small group of so called core employees so that they can show the
investors that yes they have all these fabulous access that can take care of all the
customer needs (remember MALC, NT's Access line etc). All they're doing is creating
an illusion that they are moving "full steam ahead" when all they really have is a ghost
ship barely inching along.
- In reality the only thing that Zhone ends up with are labs full of archaic aging junk
and no one to support these products or further develop them or for that matter to
even repair the stuff. Also venture capital disappearing sooooo fast that you couldn't
flush the money down the john fast enough.
If you were an investor, customer, enginner or technician would you really wanna deal with
these monkeys? They develop practically nothing, eat venture capital, fire engineers and developers and pretend to actually know something. Yes they did get real lucky once with their buddies at Lucent.

re: Headcount: Scary Times Continue You have to sell the shares in order to call it a loss. Your loss will be the difference of your buy/sell. You can then deduct up to $3k/year on your federal tax return.

re: Headcount: Scary Times Continue Calling Zhone management monkeys is an
insult to all primates.

Reptile or sediment is probably the
right species.

re: Headcount: Scary Times Continue 40% of reduction of work force mostly engineers. Don't know if any more will occur from now until the end of the year.
