    Dan posted today that the annual Summer Sale will be around 2 weeks from now.

    When a firm date is announced I will update this post.

    The Cosmic Colour Bulbs are expected to be made available for purchase during the sale in addition to the regular products.

    UPDATE: See this post for sale information

    With a bit of luck that will coincide with the LOR3 release and if we're really lucky there might be a discount offered at the sale :)

    I have second hand information from another LOR customer that the sale will be a little later than first thought - still a few weeks away.

    I wonder what is going on at LOR HQ - must be busier than santa's workshop around Christmas time ;) .

    S3 needs to get into the hands of the beta testers first, if past precedence holds, so S3 is very unlikely to be released during the sale, unfortunately...

    The sale was later because they had low stock and a big shipment is coming end of august

    From what I've seen on the LOR forums the beta testers are running out of faults. A lot more faults are going to be found when the user base jumps from 10's to 1000's so it's going top make for some super frustrated people if the fault they find with the late November released LOR3 isn't fixed for the December 1 switch on.

    The 2 weeks till the Summer Sale is starting to look a lot more like it's going to occur for the Australian summer. :(

    Re: LOR Sale 2011 - CCR sale week of Sept 5; Controller sale later in Sept

    There will be no main Summer Sale this year.

    Instead, a series of "mini" sales will be held during September.

    It starts with the Cosmic Colour Ribbons going on sale next week (week of September 5th). Other controller products will go on sale in later weeks of September.

    The CTB16PC 240v/110v AC controllers appear to still be on backorder for anybody who hoped to order them. This could change in coming weeks, however.

    At this stage there is no news on when and if either the Cosmic Colour Bulbs or Showtime Software S3 will be made available.

    You can read the official announcement on the LOR Support forum
