Thanks for the detailed analysis of how all this should come together for SCON in the near term. Let's hope that you are "spot on."
Again, JQ said during 2d Qtr Q&A that he'd tell us when the samples had been completed. Of course, he also said during that CC that he had confidence in the 10M-machine process...a statement he backed away from during the 3d Qtr call. My take was that he was simply being honest: he and the rest of Mngmt were confident the substitute process would suffice, but they had lost that confidence after 60-90 days of frustration.
I know a thing or two about contingency planning. Not only could a,b,&c go wrong...they HAVE gone wrong these past two years. China JV went south; 3G telcom business evaporated; and SCON churned through the MDB PIPE funding with little/nothing to show for it (except more PowerPoint slides). Now the company is 3-4 months behind schedule w/the wire samples.
So we shareholders are left w/little or no margin for error going forward. I agree w/your weekend funding projections. Santa needs to bring JQ a deal w/some up-front cash/cost-sharing.
It takes a lot to offend me; but experience has taught me there's a fine line between freedom-of-expression and showing one's a*#.
