Dear Faculty - I am sorry for this inconvience and frustration.
12:10 PM: Update. The revised estimate is 8 - 10 hours. We expect another review at around 4 PM.
The update is progressing with out problems but it is just really slower then anticipated. Frank Vazquez will be monitoring the situation from 12 noon until about 3 pm today. He will send out updates during that time. I suspect that this has interrupted plans for many. Our scheduled testing will now not likely happen until this evening. You may want to communicate with your faculty, students, etc. We have a page up on the login site at BlackBoard.
