And then some...the number of folks imputting their email addresses to
be notified when the site goes on line blew out the system.  I received
a number of emails from folks who got error messages because the
database was full, so if anyone else has gotten that message, they'll
be fixing the system this evening so it can handle a bigger load.

Forty-eight hours in, and we blew out the system...amazing....
