It looks as if this might be one of the last nails in Excite's coffin. The stock tanked [quicken.excite.com] (even more) after this debt news went public -off another 22% (now at 39 cents).

The company's main liability lies with the Excite portion of the business, which is highly dependent on advertising and e-commerce for the bulk of its revenue. Excite@Home's media revenue dropped 62 percent in the second quarter. That part of the business is effectively sucking the lifeblood out of what should be a thriving broadband business.


Well, that pretty much spells it out. Excite (the SE part) might as well put its head between its knees and kiss its tail goodbye.
