The female voice that keeps announcing the times sounds like it belongs to someone who (a) just woke up from a deep sleep or (b) is slightly drunk and trying to sound sober or (c) is a robot.

-- and I think they are being unusually cagy about details on this launch --

Could the problem possibly be with the payload itself then? Or would they tell us if that were the case?

I don't think a payload issue would be so 'recyclable', or would crop up during the terminal count script.

Wouldn't say that
