LOL! Good post ST :) Made me smile . . .
The only possible nitpick I have is that one of the main reasons we lost some of our longs when we hit the 20s is a lack of trust that the BOD would release relevant info in a timely fashion. Like you, I hold the stock because I think it will be game changing and that it will shine through any perceived shortcomings within the company. We were received a tacit promise at the AGM that things would be different going forward and the "Investor Update" NR was a step in the right direction. Hopefully the company knows (a) how appreciative the shareholders were (for about 5 minutes) and (b) the positive, but intangible effect that had to bolster their reputation (and possibly the SP?). Unfortunately, it's like exercise. You have to keep it up forever to retain the desired effect. . .
I would still like an update before any delays for the reasons above.
BUT . . . I agree wholeheartedly about the real message in your post. The milestones are self-imposed time lines which may be slightly off, but attaining the monolithically integrated laser will erase any misgivings. I already own all the shares I plan to own and so I'm just going to wait patiently.
