I guess that the problem with "sometime" is not so much that it's not
specific enough, but that it's not specific *at* *all*. OK fine, my
plane wont leave on time -- should I go get a room or do you expect it
to leave soon enough that I should just stay put?

Does anybody in the know have any idea whatsoever about when updates
might again start flowing? Will it be in the next day or two, or
should we all just cool our jets until October?
