Ok, so here’s how I think the technology is going to work for the live updates. I’m going to try and post updates to THIS POST that you are reading, newer updates will be at the top (below where it says “here are the updates”). I’ll precede each new update with the time to hopefully prevent confusion. If for some reason, this doesn’t work, then I’ll be emailing in updates that will create a new post each time.
It will look a little chaotic, but at least you’ll have the updates, and I’ll clean it up later. I’m getting ready to head over there right now. (1049)
