No real impact either way...we contract with our CGI and stuff to be done by a
given date, and that date can't be expanded without additional fees, so it will
still get done in the same amount of time.

I was just thinking about how to use the changes to the benefit of the story
rather than an annoyance, thought of my reaction to the level of annoyance,
wondered how Gideon would react, and just started giggling...figured I could
turn it around and in a sense take a shot across someone's bow...so there it
is.
