    It is not my place to make announcements, so I will neither confirm nor deny ... but I don't think April Fool's Day is celebrated in Norway, which is where this announcement originated.

    I'm taking the rest of the day off to ponder the serendipity of my family name having Nordic roots (adulterated by a great deal a lot of hanky panky in Scotland and the Emerald Isle through the last couple of millennia, mind you).

    ... but it is.

    i've no idea though, could be 1st of April, could be the real deal...


    umf, that's unlucky, LightWave was always driven by Tim Jenison, or so it seems.

    they picked a heck of a date.

    Why do people feel inclined to post stuff like this, which only starts rumors? Think about how uneasy your words might make someone feel if they invested $20K in a new system last week. Think.

    Thanks
