    Jawohl!

    I thought I better make it clear I simply meant "yes, indeed." Before anyone says I could have simply used ENGLISH, I suppose I could have.

    Update: the VCFSE is being pushed back a little, to add more time for preparation. The date is still TBA right now, but I hope for us to have decided by end of the month or early January. We're planning for sometime late March or early April, and that date will be firm.
