So does that mean Oct 8th remains a feasible target launch date? <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

They have already used up 4 days beyond the 3 contingency days that had been built in. That was based on&nbsp; Sept 6 rollout, perhaps 2 days have been regained if it occurs tomorrow as planned. </p><p>I'm sure though, they will take a final look at Hanna's developments before pulling the trigger tomorrow morning.</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John.

This happened a couple of years ago too. Launch was delayed by a day and i was in London during launch with no net access. Just not meant to be :(</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>
