Just a reminder that this is still happening this weekend.
However, I'm still not 100% sure on the exact time it will happen.
I'll PROBABLY be starting around 1pm US/ET (1800 UTC) on Saturday, but
don't quote me on that. :)
I'll send out an email before I start, push a news article to www, and
I'll be on IRC for questions and updates.

> 2048 20:23:3d:df:f3:13:34:c1:32:ca:11:77:24:21:98:01 (RSA)
> Let me know if you have any questions!
