We..e...e....ell. We've kidnapped Robbie and are holding him to ransom, and have taken him, the Larholms, the cat, and the rest of the volunteers off to Rio, where Icy North has joined the Mardi Gras carnival playing the bongos and dressed like Carmen Miranda. Happy Nerd has joined him on the tenor sax. Pastey has converted to Buddhism and is practicing yogic flying above the carnival crowd, Lil and Lil have discovered they were conjoined twins separated at birth and are undergoing couples' counselling. 2legs has dived into the carnival party where the sound of startled neighing suggests he's trying to hoof-cuff a pony. Mala and Tav are in jail for drawing currency and trying to spend it; for some reason that counts as forgery. Vip's actually sprouted actual wings and is flying around trying to tickle Pastey. Lanza, Gnomon and Dimitri are throwing ink bombs. Witty Moniker and Magwitch have opened an exotic pet shop and are making a killing selling pterodactyls, though one has escaped and is flying around with Vip and Pastey. Z's trying to find a post office where he can send off the Ransom Note. And I have finally flipped. Bel, very wisely, decided to stay in the Transit Lounge.

So WE are there. But no, not the site.

It's ok, Mala, we'll spring you out of jail soon. I've got this plan for sending out emails to people telling them they've won the lottery, and they just need to pay a service charge. We'll raise enough to bribe the, er, to post your bail bond. If Z can find that damn letterbox of course.

I'm just afraid that the last little bit of the Progress Bar <cheers> will be like the last little bit of shampoo in the bottle. You buy a new bottle when you think you're about a week from the end and two months later you're still dribbling out shampoo from the old bottle. It just never quite finishes.

(Anyway, the :D23: above was a test from my tablet. I can't type but I can press smilies.)

*tries not to set the expectations too high*

It all depends on how the testing goes. It might be this weekend, but if it all goes pear shaped it might not.

I don't have any expectations. It takes as long as it takes. We shouldn't make these guys who are busting a gut feel pressurised. They've been at it for about 2 weeks now..the coders and testers. If I was reading some of the stuff hereabouts..I'd think someone was going to die unless it was done as quickly as humanly possible.

They are human beings. For christ sakes lets just accept that they are doing the best they can..and we have this place in the meantime.

Also they are keeping us just so well informed.

Let them take another weekend off if they want even.

I'm an extremely impatient person by nature..but NOT in certain circumstances..this is one.

We should applaud what they have done so quickly. And just accept it might even be a month..if they are to stay healthy.

That's my message to the coders and testers. Take as long as you want. No pressure.
