comment Are you well? Happy New Year's Eve!
Thanks a lot! For 1, could you please give another example that is more formal? Imagine you are in 15-th century and talking to a king or something.

comment What does the phrase “before too long” mean?
I gave this numbers to give a specific idea of what time frame we are talking about, and added the phrase "in your example" to convey the idea that the specific estimates depend on the context. I am not a native speaker so I prefer not to get too many upvotes, but I think it does not deserve too many downvotes either. Actually I think unless someone is just trolling or obviously talking past the question nobody deserves downvotes. But it seems a norm at exchange sites that you get downvoted at your first answer.

@Jay: The estimate is from the context which I guessed a fragment from Steve Jobs' announcement of a new version of iPhone or iPad Software Development Kit. My estimate was that it takes on average at least 1-2 years before somebody writes a new application and gets rich from selling it.

@Gnanam: I don't get your point. I answered before Jay, so I did not see his answer.
