No - it's not a T-patch - it's a quick-hack that works. :)
The proper T-Patch was supposed to come up in December.

 From what I recall from the meeting this morning with the Sun guys,
they said that the T-Patch is expected in January, and the final patch
in February.

Anyways - this is what I've been told, so this is what I'm passing on.

As to why the T-Patch is not available - well - it's not available
because it's not a proper T-patch. To get to that stage it has to go
through many hoops inside Sun - so I guess that the best policy is
patience... that and keep nagging them. :)


I have seen things you people wouldn't believe.  Attack ships on fire
off the shoulder of Orion.  I watched C-beams glitter in the dark
near the Tannhauser Gate.  All those moments will be lost in time,
like tears in rain.  Time to die.
