A lot of people still seem to be surprised at Hussein's apparent lack of rationality.

Diceon Electronics Inc. on Wednesday spurned a $27.2-million hostile bid from Calvary Partners LP in San Diego, saying the offer was too low and didn't reflect Diceon's value in the market. Diceon's board of directors, making its first response to Calvary's 3-week-old offer, also called the bid "highly conditional" and questioned the San Diego's firm's ability to finance the purchase price.

Calvary Holdings LP said Wednesday that Diceon Electronics Inc. stockholders have tendered only 26% of the company's shares to Calvary's $5.25-a-share buyout offer. "This tells me they aren't getting anywhere on the tender offer," said Gerald Fleming, an analyst with Fahnestock & Co., a New York investment firm. Diceon management controls 35% of the Irvine-based company's stock, he said, "and Calvary needs to get at least 50%" for its offer to succeed.

Gilbert P. Hyatt, the low-profile La Palma inventor who enjoyed a flash of fame in July when he won a patent for inventing the microprocessor 20 years ago, proved that small innovators can still make a mark in a world ruled by high-technology giants. But for many of Orange County's small- and mid-size technology companies, 1990 was the story of the little engines that couldn't. The technology sector, once the darling of local analysts, proved it was not immune to a degenerating economy.
