"HOLY cow what a long chain… it looks fairly unanimous that we should hold off and get this thing launched once we have the authentication measures complete. The good news is, we made astounding progress to overcome the deficiency, but we do still need to do a tad bit of testing to make sure it works effectively. As to not totally jinx what we have done, I will say that it will be ready soon, but that soon will not be tonight, as everyone is just run ragged after a 14 hr day.
Thank you all so much for your thoughtful insights and replies. This was a tough decision, but it sounds like you all have made a clear and intelligent choice for the better of our community as a whole. I will be sure that we get out a progress report out to you guys ASAP in the AM. Myself and many others will be up working into the night on other things to be prepped and ready for the next update.
We apologize if we let any of you down, we will do our best to not make that mistake again.
In closing… go watch Pacific Rim… its awesome.
