Default FDX - Practice Bid Delayed Til Next Week

Per FCIF from JL:

The trons are still winning. Progress has been made but there is no way to post a practice bid realistically before next Wednesday (May 7th) or so....and don’t hold me to that date either. Just for info, it takes 10 minutes to run the bid if the software works correctly, and then 2 people take 5 hours to review it for accuracy. Also, the software is from a contracted company vice our own geeksters....Next update no later than next Tuesday. L***s Moving Target

Say what you will, but I would say JL has done a pretty good job with the updates.

At least that should delay the announcement of the next excess bid.

Can they beat me up if I don't show up for class on my training date because the training dates were not published. As an example, if I have a May 23rd class date, will they yell at me for not being there, even though the training letter that would show my training date has not been published and it's May 27th (hypothetical.)
