Nobody's fault, the dates were picked to allow for some buffering 
anyways.  I'd just like to see it go before the 15th since I'll be on 
vacation then.

Indeed, I've had it backwards all along.  I wanted to stretch it out 
because I figured we wouldn't get a whole lot of development done in 
that amount of time.  But, as seen by the last couple weeks, people 
come alive in response to a deadline ;)   So, increasing the frequency 
is probably good for pushing things forward.  (I'll stick with my 
conservative streak though and vote for three months ;).
