Positive. An 80% chance is a lot better than an announcement of another Vista delay :-)

OS in January, Office in December, IE7 Beta 3 out on schedule. If they stagger the deployments.... Either way, it looks like by next year we should be happy campers.

Have any of you lot ever watched one of those Shuttle Launches?

People hang around for hours. Commentators talk endless drivel and not much seems to happen. Then the tower is pulled almost imperceptibly away. You can briefly feel the tension as the final count is made. Things sure start happening though when those Solid Fuel Boosters kick in!

Now that is a great analogy.

Well I just posted something almost of the magnitude of Booster Rockets on another thread and nobody here seems to find it significant. I am stunned.

No need to be stunned, because many members here have the same view as yours but haven't got time to say anything yet.

We have an idiom in Chinese "英雄所见皆同", meaning "all heroes always have same opinions". What it really emphesizes is "the timid never understand why heroes are so brave and optimistic". I am happy that most our members here are heroes except a few...

Well, you have always been one of mine! Hell, I only got into this because my life was falling apart at the time. What was your excuse?

I like betting that my observation is right, my conclusion is correct. I put money into IDN to WIN!

Yes, true, it's like the Fed giving hints as to when the next rate rise will come. 80% chance is way above announcing another delay. The next announcement might be the actual day.

Small people on this forum know who they are. God bless us!

I think the launch of Vista is a much easier affair than booster rockets, Vista won't fail and won't be scrapped - there's no 1 out of 100 chance.
