It diidn't go tumbling down until around 4:30 EDT. I won't even tell you what worries started going through my head after a few hours. Those who have had teens who 'forget' to contact home know the drill.
I'm relieved to see all is well, and that the frowny face about updates has changed to smile.
Plus, a bunch of us have a stack of brand new badges. I'm glad the update was eventually successful.
A little advance warning if it's possible next time would be appreciated by at least one worrywort here.
