Are there others like me wondering if some may have "jump-the-gun" in saying that Maestro would be available since last November/December of 2015 time frame, it's now May 2016 almost ?

Just wondering!!!

As my kids used to say on long trips, "Are we there yet?"

A good friend of mine owns a company that builds commercial buildings such as hospitals.  He built a new building at our church that took over a year to get through the approval process at the city.  We kept thinking any day now they can start.  Then the building finally went up and looked like it was nearing completion.  I asked him how things were going and he said, "All we have left is finishing up."  It took four more months after that before we got a certificate of occupancy.  

The city had approved drawings for all of the fire protection system including the smoke detectors.  They came in and said we had to add more smoke detectors and different levels in the rooms.  Next when testing the system, the alarms did not properly control the sound systems.  On and on it seemed like there was one unexpected issue after another that delayed things another week or two and then another week or two.  Even after the certificate of occupancy was approved my friend told me, "All we have left is finishing up."

My friend does not have any software nor electronic hardware to develop.  However, he and I fully identify with each other when it comes to "finishing up."  Stuff happens that you don't expect.  You try to factor those things in on the front end but no one is prescient when it comes to planning complex projects.

Are we there yet?  Almost there.  We're just finishing up.  ;>)
