From the release notes:
V72.1 is intended to tweak down the arrogant asshole setting on the RomneyBot bios chip, and fully implement the features of the COL (cute one-liner) expansion card. Due to time constraints, this release will not correct the connectivity issues that were introduced with migration to the 18.104.22.168 host subnet mask, as such, RomneyBot will still have trouble communicating beyond the 22.214.171.124 domain controller.As of this morning, it's unclear if the GOP Geek Squad has isolated the connectivity issues to a bad NIC (NormalPerson Interface Card), but the RomneyBot just can't get any communication out beyond the 126.96.36.199 domain controller without data collisions and packet delivery failures. That's why they were messing with the 188.8.131.52 subnet mask in the first place.
A newer version of the troubled RomneyBot project, RyanDroid, is experiencing developmental delays with similar issues that may prevent deployment of the retooled GOP Meme Generator™ until 2015 or 2016.
Updates as warranted, or as warrants are issued.
At the end of the day, the upcoming debates aren't going to matter a whole lot except to those who already have their minds made up.
There is nothing that Team Romney can throw out or up that will substantially change the narrative at this point. On Thursday, Republicans will be chortling that Willard cleaned Obama's clock. The Democratic Party surrogates will be thrilled that the President stayed above Willard's petty partisan bickering and sniping, and therefore won the debate.
Wash, rinse, and repeat 2 more times (3, including the VP debate).
No "game change" -- jeez, I hate that phrase -- one way or the other.
