Yes and yes.

Please be advised that I'm in Sydney, NSW, Australia through tonight 
(it being 10:28 PM, here), and will be taking an extremely looooong
flight tomorrow (Saturday the 20th), arriving back very exhausted,
jet-lagged, and with incredibly huge amounts of unread e-mail and
backlogged tasks when I arrive home late Saturday.  So, I may not be
able to carry out any promised actions for a few days after that.

Will advise.
