I think you've missed my point. ROL made promises *after* that was all over - they *would* have known and *should* have made more accurate predictions about time/duration for project completion given whatever constraints they had *at that time*.

How long can the "legal issues" of 2004 be used as an excuse for delay. Surely ROL *now* should be in a position to assert schedules for release given that if they *haven't* allowed for their actual income and ability to hire staff at this stage in the process - so long after the legal issues - would be to suggest a studied stupidity which I don't think they'd be guilty of !!!!
