We're trying to be more diligent about helping out on that newsgroup.  Dan (one of our devs), Hong (another PM), and I are meeting daily to answer as many posts as we can.  We also get daily nag emails about posts that aren't answered so if you do post there, we'll try to respond within the next few days.
