I know...I'm impatient.  I'm just wondering if anyone has yet received their e-mail from Sales regarding today's "hidden promotion"?  I'm anxiously refreshing my e-mail inbox over and over and have been for the last 3.5 hours Stick out tongue

I have, more than 2 hours ago. I've even received the reply to my answer to it, and am now writing on my answer to that. Smile

I got an email from a salesperson, but the topic was not "hidden promotion". I got it about 1.5 hours after posting in the thread.

The topic was: Logos Bible Software - For Forum Week only

Edit: From the looks of FGH's post, we are talking of the same email.

Are you serious? Or are you just giving me a hard time? Crying I was the first one to answer the questionnaire...shouldn't that be worth something? Stick out tongue

I've checked my inbox, my deleted items, and my junk mail folders...I haven't gotten anything from Logos today.

Well,

To cite Rosie, 

That needs to be translated into English. "Soon" (as in "soon and very soon, we are going to see the Lord") has eschatological connotations. It is already and not yet. It could be tomorrow, but it could still be a long way off.

from http://community.logos.com/forums/p/5768/234113.aspx#234113   (I think she was paraphrasingJoe Miller [you see, it's directly from the horse's mouth]

Well, the NT says Jesus is coming soon, so very soon must be before soon, so it should be out before Jesus returns.  Also, very soon is defiinately before later, so I would guess it is sooner rather than later it will be here.  Hope that helps Wink

I hope this helps you (it keeps me from refreshing my inbox all over and training for the hide&seek!)

Big Smile

I got my Socio Rhetorical commentary (8 volumes) at a great low price! Then I purchase other 2 resources that were not on the list, but I, too, got them at a great price! This day was a GOOD day!

Considering there are now over 160 entries in that thread (and growing) ... AND considering that each post must be traced (however internally) to a specific user/email (probably part of the program) and a custom deal set up.  I'm not surprised that it's taking time.

I'm just afraid the deal is going to be so good I'm going to have to take it.  Indifferent

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

I posted at 10:15am my email came at 2:56pm.

I suspect that they may be a bit overwhelmed by the response

I haven't received the 'deal' yet either. I guess they are bogged down.

Same with me (just that this morning is later afternoon over here). I already received a reply on my answer - now it's budget calculating time...
