In my opinion, keeping a website running should be secondary when the real task at hand is designing and building a functioning mock-up is really secondary.
Why not keeping up the website to keep us informed of project developments rather than color schemes or the position of the ENTER key?
I understand the people involved in the project have day jobs to keep the money coming and things to do, but why not focusing on what is really important, i. e., a tangible prototype, a device to prove that the effort is going somewhere? John's suggestion of a deadline for a prototype seems reasonable to me.
I am just thinking aloud: servers online with progress reports, much in the way Meindert kept us informed about MLDL 2000, a deadline of, say, February 1, 2007, for a working prototype and focus on the hardware, operating system and "the works" of the mock-up. Wearing multiple hats with the basic concern being server reliability and key layout is not helping, or so it seems.
If the prototype works and turns out better than the outsourced models available, I will gladly buy not one, but four. And it would be great if could be possible by mid-2007.
My two cents, no offense, sarcasm or flame war intended.
