5th of september?

The last update came out the 5th of september 2008. I know, I'm a natural optimist, but... next week is the 5th of september, so maybe....

Yep, THIS will stop, but people will start complaining about and discussing old and new bugs, still missing features, new features and blah...

BTW: One things for sure... the 5th of September WILL come!

Actually, I think it was hilarious. Also the poem was wonderful. Nearly fell off my chair laughing. You don't have to take it that serious, people still made fun of Duke Nukem Forever long after it was clear that it would never happen...

Btw, have you heard about that rumour that there WILL BE a Duke Nukem Forever after all? They say now that they sold the Studio IT WILL HAPPEN...

You are 100% correct. So close to the release - and with some versions already out in the wild - I doubt that they would cancel that update. So it's basically just a question of time.... All the more reason to pass the time having some fun

I sent my Cybook Gen3 to Bookeen to have its screen replaced and the firmware updated about seven weeks ago.
