Yep, you read correctly, "was going to happen." Talked to the guy last night, and it's been pushed back to mid-ish January (from next Friday, the 8th), so we can get our act together better than a herd of rhinos. Sorry for all the confusion. Hope to see all you Floridians/Georgians/people with full gas tanks and/or plane tickets here in a month and a half.
edit: There is a bit of a race, see the other thread here.
