Shurely Shomething Wrong?
"we would like to see if the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, which I believe it to be"
Er, no Dick, in a breakup or sale you want to see if the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. That's what we scientists call 'the opposite' of what you said.
Have you got that? Are you sure? How much do you get paid again? Can I have some, because it's quite clear that giving the money to some random commenter on The Register would, at this point, be better for TW shareholders than giving it to you.
