    I'll be all alone on New Year's Eve. Lightwave dropping would be great! It would give me something to distract me from my sad and lonely existence.......

    might be alone too, have pretty much myself to blame though.

    having 10 test-projects running, + good friends can be hard to find.

    just like girlfriends, friends don't find you. you find them, by socializing with hundreds.

    and if there is a family feud, there are only 2 solutions, forgiveness or acceptation/reconciliation.

    just sat on the bus, overheard the guy in front of me spending Christmas alone.
    it's not as uncommon as one would think. and no shame in it either.

    Well, if you want an underwhelming release to fly under the radar what better time to release it than during the holidays?

    Yeah, a "late 4Q2017 release", without marketing spin-up, etc. seems rather unlikely, as doing so would basically ensure weak sales until at least mid-Jan'18. From the week before Xmas through the week after New Years tech companies tend to be in holiday break. Even for those that stay open, they're usually operating with greatly-reduced staffing, particular w.r.t. higher-level staff with signing authority.

    Consumer retail may still do a lot of business in the week right before Xmas, but when it comes to business expenditures it tends to be a bit of a "dead zone".

    A release is unlikely but I expect a dev update.

    They should release the moment it is ready, even if that means New Year's day. If Next is fast and stable social media will start spreading the word and the buzz will build.

    No need to wait for the perfect week or moment.

    You mean "masochists"? --That's fair.

    Very well then...here's the Kraken I animated back in 2000 for a Christian kids show I worked on called Kingdom Under the Sea. . Good times, I miss those days.

    We did the whole series in Lightwave.
