|What caused us to have a problem? - Here's
our answer, posted on December 8, 2011 (rev. Sep. 25, 2017).
|We began working on the update for Lion three months before the public
release of Lion. Our programming team for this project consisted of two individuals,
both independent contractors -- one had a twenty-year relationship with our company.
Programming was to be done off-site. Though we felt development was not proceeding
quickly enough, we were assured that though the task was difficult, progress was
being made. This situation continued through September. In October we learned that
the lead programmer had an aggressive, fatal disease. He has now passed away. Because
this illness was kept secret from us, both our company and you, our customers, have
been harmed. Legal action is under consideration which has caused us to be more silent
than we would have preferred.
In October we began searching for a replacement programmer to complete the update
for Lion. Despite the offer of significant compensation, we have not yet found a
properly qualified applicant.
We are disclosing this problem hoping that someone may know the right person who
could complete this work. We estimate that not a lot of time is needed for completion.
We are willing to negotiate significant compensation to a qualified candidate who
can complete the task. We are also offering a $500 award payable to the person who
refers the programmer who successfully gets this software shipping within the time
period that we negotiate with the candidate. Send referrals of qualified programmers
to our Support Department. [We have plenty of candidates, but still lack sufficient
We again apologize for our silence. We ask for your understanding and assistance
in helping us get these updated versions finished. (As of El Capitan we had good
news on one of our products.)
