    If he needs more time, he needs to simply analyze the costs and benefits of each project, and cut the ones that do not have a good cost to time ratio. Or he could delegate them to other people whom could be in charge of those for a paid income - thus freeing his time.

    I'm awaiting the changes just the same as anyone, just a' tumblin' tumblin' like the tumbleweed, no particular place to go...

    I don't think Shawn needs business advice from anyone here. Just support. :cool:

    By the way, I reckon more and more users are using that tube-head bender avatar on this forum.
    For goodness sake, who's that, a cartoon character? If so, are there that many kids around?

    Haha, so it's the "bender brigade" now or whatever you guys call it. Maybe unrelated to this thread my post that is, I'd say unrelated to this forum in general, no offense. See why Shawn and the mods may be hard to reach when there's no real business on their forum members' todo lists ;)

    Take it easy.

    I agree Notting! You'd think by now there would have been at least an update to the restructuring of DP and what it means to the users.

    It's obvious people are very anxious to find out what the heck is going on here.

    It's more obvious that people are extremely nosy. If or when there's anything to tell you, you'll be told.

    Pretty much, although I'm not only singling out you.

    Look, the owner of this forum, in response to complaints about not responding to support requests for his products, made an offhand comment about being overwhelmed and needing to restructure his business.

    Note the phrase "his business".

    I don't know Shawn personally and I don't have any inside information. But if it were me, my attitude would be that the only thing anyone has a right to know is what I feel like disclosing, when I feel like disclosing it, if ever.

    "Nosy" is the polite version.

    Alternatively, Shawn created this thread on purpose. That's an open invitation, nay almost a request, for people to be "nosy." :)

    Well, minstrel, you have posted in this thread just as much as me, and you posted such gibberish as "DP is sold" and answering questions like you own the place or something.

    I can't wait until Shawn comes back and knocks you down to your level again, like he did previously.

    And thanks Will Spencer, I agree completely.

    Furthermore...Shawn stated that the changes would be made "this week" and that was on the 14th of the month--almost 2 weeks ago..

    So maybe the changed were made behind the veil, and the wizard will come back with the projector to amaze us later with the minor details of a top level organization change. Then Dorthy and Toto can go home to Kansas.

    Uh... that was a joke... see the posts leading up to it. :rolleyes:

    And when was that, exactly, pray tell?

    And? He owes you an update? or anything at all?

    As for inviting comment, I think it had more to do with a public announcement to give in formation to those wondering about the lack of support for OptiGold.

    I think you're on the right track here. We forum members tend to think of Shawn in the context of the forum, when the forum is a really small portion of Shawn's DigitalPoint empire.

    You know when, I'm not even going to bother myself with looking through the old posts on this thread to find it, so don't act like that:rolleyes:

    No, seriously I don't. I think you must have me confused with someone else.
