eggy=wrong.

Days=shipment of 8=close at hand=end of specials deals=about the same time the mars rover makes it out of the crater it has been in for over a month and sees all those blue berries strewn about ready for the gathering.

but who really knows.:) ;) :)

I guess no one read the bottom of the e-mail:

"Please note that this message is just for our qualifying customers - please do
not repost this message on any public venue."

That means this post should have not been created.

Yes I was ironic about the 72 days mail, but the shame on you newtek was a little bid true.

Hey, common !
Newtek could at least tell us something about what kind of moth (or year) they expect the Lightwave 8 shipping.
Last year they told us they will deliver by the end of the year (2003), but now we know nothing.
The LW/DFX+ bundle ended last Sunday the 22nd (did it really ?), dstorm said Lightwave will deliver by March 23rd and that’s the same date my reseller told me when I ask him two weeks ago.

So any information would be great.:confused:

What I presume (with the help of some facts) is that they were aiming for the december release, but they hit some big bugs. While these bugs were being fixed the other's kept working, and I guess they out back the release date till march. Again they are stuck on some bugs and are pushing the date back a week or two, but I don't think it'll be more than that as they've delayed too much already. The reason they're not saying anything is they don'twant to say a dat and be wrong again .. what if in a week they find another big bug? Just be happy that we know they're planning on a release soon.

heh, I just hought of something amusing (sortof)

"LW8 will be released soon after the specials end"

"The specials will end when LW8 is released"

The two impressions I've gotten about the situation.

.... I think time might be bending here soon ....

I'm not holding my breath. I'm waiting for when the conversation switches from when is it coming out to "Hey I just got a package in the mail"

Until then, I'll cross my fingers just in case and continue animating.

LOL

You have to admit it's pretty funny. Loads of people are waiting for an email to tell them they won't be getting something!

Nope: But I can live without it, since it seems to be just a sales shot trying to get us to buy something we already paid for.

Haven't received any emails at all from NewTek, but personally can't spend time stressin'. LW 8 will get here when it does -- I'm over all the hype. Will be patient!

I got a nude singing telegram.....

"Sorry its been so late.
Waiting for the release of eight
Please don't see us as an ingrate
So return to your lives, and us to our fate
Which purpose may seem to only aggrevate
As the talk of release is in endless debate
So return to your lives and cuddle with your mate
If you live alone, click on the cable to help you masterba.."

I slammed the door at that point... and tuned into showtime....:rolleyes:

Why do I get the feeling that Beam could sell the iPod to Helen Keller if he worked at the Apple Store...

King kong ain't got sheat on Beam when it comes to mac fandom :rolleyes:

Beam is to Apple what Jerry Farwell is to evangalism. Fanatical.
