Not particularly surprisingly, the DB build encountered some not so nice errors, its still trundling along but at its present rate it would take ~ 20 days to build [which is totally not cool]. My normal solution to a problem like this is to through inexpensive hardware at it, but sadly the last stage DB build is still only handled in a monolithic single threaded manner, so it does not look like it will be done in time. The solution is to [hopefully one last time] delay the full product launch until the 8th, which will hopefully give me enough time to either track down and fix the bottle neck, or write some code to split the task up and get Amazon to increase my EC2 limit, or both :)
