...and by the way, thank you for confirming that I am not the only one who took the phrase "releasing an upgrade in a few days" to mean releasing an upgrade in a few days.

What do you mean "give the guy a break"? A break from what? A question in a forum that he doesn't have to (and probably hasn't) read? Quit making this situation more than it needs to be, leave it alone. It was a one-sentence question asking ANYBODY if they knew when it would be released. Quit on this, your post count is high enough...

dude i dont care about post count thats stupid and childish what does it get me nothing it means nothing and I get nothing for it. So dont incinuate anything about me. He stated plain and clear watch this thread and there site so how would anyone else know anything if it hadnt been posted by him or someone from his company. I am not trying to make anything out of anything.

Thanks for all your help, Dawg. It's obvious that I don't understand how a forum works and the proper etiquette to use when engaging in discussions of these types. You are a godsend to this forum and to all the rest of us that struggle with these kinds of interactions.

Actually dkmadrid the question should not have even been brought up. I do agree with Dawg, give the man a chance he does not have to do anything at all, he is giving it to us for free. Besides all of that, stop for one minute is being without AIM for a month such a big deal or a problem that we all have to split hairs over what a few days entails. Can it, wait patiently or impatiently (your choice) but do it quietly and in private, and be thankful or grateful or write your own software.

I have the go ahead to release an update to Ramble, which I will be doing in the next couple of days
just to add my little bickering sidenote, if someone has been given the go ahead to release something, it simply means that he has the approval to do the project. when i'm having sex and i've been given the permission to release, it doesn't necessarily mean that i'm ready to do so, now does it?

but seriously, from previous posts, he was not going to start on the project until he had the approval. had the application already been coded and ready, i doubt it would take anyone a 'couple days' to put an update on the web and test the download link - more like a 'couple minutes'. hope that explains. just be patient. this is someone's leisure side project that became a bit more popular than he most likely expected.

Just to throw in my own two cents here...His post actually said he just got the ok to release an update. I don't think any of his posts ever said anything about writing the code, so it's very possible he took the time to write it before he got the ok from the lawyers.

And as dkmadrid said, all he did was ask a question to see if anyone had more up-to-date information. He didn't demand an update, he didn't insult Rambler because he hadn't delivered the software yet, he didn't ask the question multiple times. And sure enough, Rambler posted a message today giving us more information that there had been a delay.

Unhappy

No disrespect, but I do find your bickering quite amusing. Honestly, the issues I see some of you splitting hairs about and quibbling over, it's akin to the conversations I listen to my 9, 7, and 6 year olds having. Again, no disrespect- and I know this comment won't make me too popular- but come on people, dkmadrid did ask a question only once and Rambler did post that it would be up in a couple days so what was so wrong with [dkdmadrid] asking the question? Please enlighten me. I mean, I can see your point with being patient and all but is it really that serious? Ah well, just my .01

The first page of this thread was filled with praise for the program coming back the second page of it was a E-whose penis is bigger party.

everyday this forum becomes the iden insider of the blackberry world....having the most members doesnt always make you the best forum...when I first joined this site it was filled with quality members who were willing to help that doesnt seem 100% true anymore. of course there are still those people willing to help and to those I am appreciative...but I am tired of clicking on threads and seeing "please search first" youve been around the forums long enough to know that isnt gonna happen...some people are just inharintly lazy...

Man i got to laugh out loud at that one, thanx!

If others in our forums would take the same approach we wouldn't have the recent tensions that seem to be getting worse...

Online trolls who are rude to everyone because they don't have a life are hilarious. I wish I could get you all in a REAL room and watch you all be silent to eachother because you can only fight your battles online. How about you let Rambler get his product out, without pissing him off, so that we can be thankful for the free thing he's giving us. I know I don't want to pay 39.99 a year for an IM client on my phone... do you?

.......truer words were never spoken! (Thinking to self) Well, there is the Bible to consider. Then, well, Ghandi had some sayings i'm partial to. And, there was that book by William James...ok, very true words have been spoken.

Well I do have a life, I have a very good life that includes a wonderful wife and three great children a fantastic career. So I sure cant be the troll hes talking about. I am very open in public as well as behind closed doors. I speak my mind however I do it with out calling names or jumping to conclusions as others do.

It was more of a general comment, but I guess it would currently apply to dkmadrid.
