And because those things that we've been working on we have seen that over the last week or so with so to us we just kind of excited -- finally everybody realize how great we -- but quickly we realized that something was definitely very wrong.
And out that we had this peaks despite all the sudden -- after about 25 minutes and the stock just ran up 300% very quickly and it's funny because my -- -- my investor relations -- -- me because the computers have taken over you know we just kinda new at that point something was wrong.
