    One quarter less than two thirds better than not half bad.

    So this is it the last week of spring. It’s either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. So I am betting none of these days, gonna miss spring release.

    Bring a laptop, stomp, headphones, and a guitar? No wi-fi out there?
    7-8 months sounds long without any guitar playing :eek:

    Laptop check
    Headphones check
    Pod hd for sound card check
    Guitar will be bought in next port of call.
    Wifi is overpriced onboard. 8 megabites (mb) 24 euros. Guess to download the native's latest version, will be similar to buy it anew. Lol

    Future updates will allow you to map your Helix hot key to F5 so you can refresh the thread while playing.

    Did they ever say it was spring 2019?
    Maybe it’s spring 2020.
    Maybe that’s why 2019 will be a great year as we don’t have to update our Helix.

    I’m wondering if most people here are aware how software development works. It’s very hard to predict release dates. Only way (besides leaving stuff out) is just padding the hell out of that release date but that’s also not optimal. You are always gonna run into unexpected difficulties. I know software is very abstract for a lot of people. But consider writing and recording an album: would you be able to correctly set a release date before the writing starts? Most of the time it’s after recording that that happens. In this case, it’s not even the end of spring yet so put down the torches!

    Personally I consider all updates a bonus. If they happen to make the expected release date, that’s a big feat - definitely not something that I feel entitled to nor something I am expecting.
