No argument there.  One of the half-formed thoughts that didn't make it
into my message was, check back in a month or so.  They clearly weren't
ready launch week, but that's not necessarily as big a deal as whether
things are going smoothly in a month or two.  It IS an embarrassing
launch, but you can recover from that.  If it's still having problems in
a month or two, that's more serious.
