Nope. ;-)

On a quasi-related front, does anyone know of any analytical summaries available
which compare Black-Schols valuations for technology derivatives against actual
performance before, during, and after the bubble cycle?

It would be interesting to see how far diverged from the model actual price
behavior was, and how that divergence evolved as we flipped the bit from overly
optimistic to overly pessimistic.
