It seems like I post about this every month but why bother with a date if you are not going to stick to it. I would rather have you say “the next major mysteries project is x and it will be delivered sometime in the second half of October”. Then if it comes early, great. Maybe it is just me and this is a personal peeve of mine? At the very least if you are going to give a date and you miss it, just let us know.
To be clear, I love and appreciate all that you and the team do. I don’t want that over shadowed by this relatively small issue but the date thing really does drive me nuts.
