Yeah, thanks, I spent most of the day getting those images out of my head so it's a big help having them reloaded again...

If you are looking for the earlier reports:
http://www.ticonline.com/buffett.partner.letters.html

These are the pre-BRK letters. The site might go down anytime - it has been falky in the past. Now Nords you have gold bars to pass around once you download them

p.s: Modified to ask - did you already get them?

Those overlap, but the e-mail version is Feb 1958 to Feb 1970. Admittedly TIC's have the real image, not just scanned text with all its formatting issues. I'm not looking for ponies as much as I'm interested in browsing through the piles; the reality of doing so is probably less thrilling than the former fantasy.

I've never had any trouble with the site but I'm sure that they've heard from Buffett and are off his Christmas-card list...

Re: Warren Buffet the Billionaire Next Door

I saw the show as a repeat last weekend and I thought that it shed a good light on Mr B. It made him seem awfully human and displayed how down-to-earth he appears to be. I would love to ride around Omaha with him in his Caddy any old day of the week.
