Well after many attempts I finally got through the Datel Technical support phone line.
The lady on the phone informed me that there is a 4 to 6 week delay on the release. (This information was passed on to Datel staff this morning after a meeting about the product). Apparently they need to iron out some 'glitches' with the Freeloader product.
So I'm guessing a pre or post-Christmas release.
I asked her if it was ever going to be released and she said "It is 100% certain it will be".
Just the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
