This is the announcement thread. Keep it on topic.

If you want to discuss technical things, games, problems or anything else then put it in the correct section of the forum.

 

I have removed the off-topic posts.

Rules are in place for a reason.

Be aware that punctuating a post with  ;) does not make an unacceptable post more acceptable.

So nice to see the forum mods so active in this thread when it comes to censoring peoples post that have less than a kind word about this topic.

Not only that , Im happy that the reasons why have been explained as well. Too bad the topic at hand hasn't been handled as such.

Happy to be of service buddy.

I'm hardly censoring the thread though, look at all the **** and nonsense that hasn't been removed.

 

I know the same as you about the delay / progress, what it says at the beginning of this thread.

500 or so disgruntled replies in. I get one removed for suggesting that Netduma should address this group of CUSTOMERS by posting something here. I did not swear, I wasn't rude to another member, I barely even got sarcastic. At some point Colonic, aren't you getting frustrated that as an volunteer you're left to try and keep this civil? With no help from Netduma, when all it takes is a 2min message that could be written from a cell phone while sitting on a potty? (Like this message was)

I can't remember what they all said, I removed several, I removed one that I didn't mean to remove too (we all make mistakes) so apologies if that was yours. At least you didn't get banned.

 

I find everything frustrating.

Even though what your saying is true, personally speaking , I'm hearing the same excuse as too why the update hasn't come to fruition. In fact most of these excuses have come from no one that actually employed by Netduma. 

 

At this point, I dont want to hear about how great it is that Netduma teamed up with Netgear. I dont own an XR500 and I'm never going to own one. 

So good for Netduma and Netgear, but I couldn't care less. The previous delays occurred before the integration, didn't it ? 

 

Lets face it, Netduma has not been accurate about statements concerning delivery time for DumsOS, so it seems like they are lying now.

How can you believe anything that comes from them at this point. 

 

I'm annoyed that the CEO hasn't followed up with an explanation as why we haven't seen the update. Its been more than a few weeks now. 

He owes everyone here that. It cant make matters worse than they are. IMO they ruined any credibility they had. If anything , it may save what little credibility that can get from me. 

 

It might be pointless to complain about it , I wont sit silently by either and allow this to occur without conveying my feelings redundantly.

I'm not annoyed with the development time. I'm annoyed that we are given a deadline by NetDuma and it's consistently missed by large amounts of time. Either the accuracy of estimation needs to be adjusted or just not say anything and surprise your customers. 

 

"a few weeks" has come and gone, and "a few weeks" more since then. When is the actual deadline?

I asked on Facebook about it and just got that generic nutting saying at all answer:

"Hi Christoph - our development team is working very hard to get DumaOS ready as soon as possible. It is a mammoth amount of work, more so than we anticipated. We are working on making DumaOS available to you all as soon as we can so we can then start making lots of new features for you guys."

Looks like 2 more years are ahead. If anyone interested this was my answer to them:

"
Yeah I know and I believe you but you saying this now since a long time (over 1 year). And it was given the 17th of April as a final release date. Then you delayed again and said just a few weeks. You have no excuses here anymore. Just get it done 4 fook sake."

Yeah, in the end, this sound for me not like "just a few weeks more" it sounds more like its ready when its ready but we don't have the slightest clue when this will be.

Update: Ian himself chimed in. If anyone is interested this is his answer:

 

"The R1 has been updated many times with many ground breaking features including ping assist, peer ping, profiles and so on. We're working on releasing DumaOS asap and a mammoth amount of work is required, more so than we anticipated.

DumaOS did not exist when you bought the R1. We are offering radically new software to our R1 buyers free of charge. Years of man-hours have gone into developing this new software as well as overcoming the technical difficulties of porting it to older hardware.

So please be assured that we are working on making DumaOS available to you all as soon as we can. 

Many thanks

Iain (founder and CTO)"

 

I won't share my answer to this here in the forum but if you want to know it just have a look at their Facebook page.

So almost the same amount of time we've been waiting for DumaOS. 

 

I know you were trying to make a joke, but we've been waiting since 2016.

Well that post is f'ing relevant to the topic....

 

I just found it amusing that someone says they have 'nothing more to say on the subject' and yet still manages to post on that same subject every day (sometimes more than once a day).

 

And then, taking 'nothing more to say on the subject' to the next level, they take it to Facebook and then post in here to tell everyone about that too.

I know the issues and the release of their nighthawk with netgear is why the DumaOS is delayed, but when we're promised a service over a year ago and it still hasn't happened without some sort of 'looking like it'll be done at such and such date' while we've all been told a few weeks at most 4 weeks ago, just gotta be wondering what's going on, when they first annouced DumaOS it was july 2016 

you'd think nearly 2 years later we'd have it by now.
