Re: Elektros Againinator

Missing the point, you are.

My point is, announce a ship date when you've got a finished product and
it's just a matter of waiting for distribution.  I don't know about your
job, but if I promise a client something by a certain date and I'm WAY
off, I loose the business.  Frankly, I'd rather have them take a few
features taken off to get the product out, and then distribute a free
software update when it's ready.  We're not talking about a few days
here, we're talking about 8 months.  Sure, shit happens, but last week
we got emailed, "get ready for good news soon."  People need to pay
attention to the world around them.

I think we should bury this subject.
