Kinda off-topic for nanog, but:

We're running a bit behind. A whole bunch of people came forward with  
offers of free transit, equipment, and a bunch of other things, but  
for one reason or another most weren't able to deliver on them.  
Usually it was because everything was great until their legal  
department heard about it. Those of us working on the project  
strongly feel that if we end up saturating our own links during the  
course of the experiment, it's going to invalidate a lot of our  
findings. Or at least call into question their accuracy. So, I'm  
talking with some others right now who have offered some help with  
bandwidth and other resources, but it's pushed our timetable back  
quite a bit.

Thanks for reminding me to update the page though! :)
