Congratulations to everyone at SpaceX!  :) 

Even on an expendable launch (funny how strange this sounds already), they weaseled in some advancements; compacting the count by 10 minutes. SpaceX never misses an opportunity to continuously improve in every aspect of their operation. Great work!

Launch acceleration looks about 1g... this rocket needs larger second stage?

Congratulations on hopefully one of the last SpaceX fully expendable launches (since there is no indication at the moment that fairy recovery attempt was planned either) !
Now to bring back everything !!! :-D
Oh, and we would loooove to see that hypothetical death cam footage from S1 !
