Then why give a date in the first place?

Now, this is completely coming from the whiny guy who wants Chromonator ASAP and it isn't meant to be as negative as it may sound. I know that this isn't a day job for you guys, and I totally appreciate what you've given to the filmmaking community, but why do we always learn of the delays two days after the projected date? I'm sure it was obvious on April 25th that the new stuff wasn't going to be finished by the next day, but we hear nothing until the 28th. And now we've gotten a second delay, with no word until the release date has gone by. If a new date comes up, i'ts bordering on mean-spirited. After two date-specific releases gone by, I'd rather just hear "Coming Summer 2003" and be surprised when it arrived, then anticipating the date and being disappointed.

Again, this is armchair management coming from a cranky guy who wants to make little movies, I hope no one gets upset and can understand where I'm coming from.

I completly understand your point of view. Personally I dont like giving specific dates for that very reason, Id much rather get it all finished and working and at that point tell everyone it will be live in a couple of weeks (after testing). That way I can pretty much garentee it will be around when I say it is. Unfortunatly we get pressured daily about when things will be released, im quite happy to give updates on my progress to anyone that asks, but people want exact dates. So we do the best we can and come up with a rough estimate. It probably should have been reinforced more that it was just an estimate, then people wouldnt have been so dissapointed.

We are sorry it keeps getting delayed, believe me I probably feel worse than everyone else combined when I miss a date. This is why Im hesitant about making another guess
