"We are putting tremendous emphasis on shipment of existing backorders and are not accepting new orders until this is completed. We are also in the process of reorganizing our company to better serve our customers. We project that shipment of backorders will commence and our reorganization will be completed by June 29, 2001. This projected date is our best estimate. Until this is completed, it may be difficult to contact us, as our ability to respond via telephone and email will be limited."

Tick, tick, tick......

I should of listened to my parents and graduated Electrical Engineering. They can send a man to the moon, but no one knows how to tap a digital signal for output to a recorder. I bet when it does become available, there will be one stupid transistor in this magical piece of equipment.

Well if they go on past performance, the next due date should be 2 more weeks. How poetic, that makes it Friday the 13th, which is just too funny.

I'm sorry, guys, but you don't have to be the Amazing Kreskin to have forecast that nothing would happen today.

Of course, it's only11:54 PM EST as I write this, so 169Time still has 6 minutes. Heck, they're on the West Coast, so they've got a whole 186 minutes. And shoot, monkeys could come flyin' outta my ass any second now. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif

ttfn.

IMO, I think some people will never see their money, DTC100s, or hear from Richard Adams ever again.

In fairness (overfairness?) to 169, they do say that orders will begin *shipping* on the 29th, so you would expect a few days delay before they arrive n'est pas?
I think it's a safe bet that, if they actually started shipping anything, they would announce it.
