FreeRunner delayed a further 6 months?!?!??

Just throwing my $.02 out there, but your first paragraph is exactly the
type of paragraph that I personally feel is what the community is
wanting/expecting from Michael in his community updates.  Furthermore,
*if* they do find a showstopper bug, knowing that too would be nice as

I honestly think that most of the frustration centers around the fact
that there is a decent amount of visibility (and discussion) around the
software and its maturity, but there is (especially in comparison)
almost zero visibility into the hardware.  I'm not necessarily faulting
FIC for that lack of visibility behind "closed doors" as most companies
wouldn't do that either.  I'm just merely pointing out the obvious
contrast and why it is causing frustration.

The hw-designers hope they hold the "golden master" in their hands with 
version A6 currently.
Seems there are no showstoppers been found so far.
Power management is at a reasonable "some days" to "some weeks" in standby 
with GSM.

Note he didn't say "working hard to find the bugs". To me it sounds like it's 
all about ramping up the factory.

So i guess you *will* see some timeline or at least an update to be published 
in the next weeks, no more need for a _monthly_ update blog.
