    It was a great, albeit cold day in Richmond today. The supercharger is officially online. We had about 33 cars/owners show up, and a few VIPs. Several owners were interviewed by local and state media outlets (TV, magazines). Afterwards a few of us had lunch at Chili's which made the property management representative VERY happy.

    Youtube says it's still processing the videos (it's being really slow today.) I'm going to post the links here and hopefully they will become live soon enough. If not I'll fix it later.

    Yeah, I heard that too. Give him a little extra credit for staying long after, talking to a lot of us, and probably learning a lot more about it including possibly the pronunciation.

    In the first video the Tesla VP calls Gen III "Model E". I think that is the best confirmation of the name we have yet.

    The second video finished processing 5 hours after I uploaded it. The other two are still processing. Clearly YouTube is having problems. If it doesn't clear by morning I'll re-upload.

    Edit: they are all working now.

    wait... so he said store and service center? o_O That should be nice! Maybe they will have it opened up before my car arrives so I don't have to go all the way up to Rockville :p
