that doesnt suprise me.

Based on what has been mentioned on open forum and in newsletters it strikes 
me as pretty clear that the bird isnt going to fix itself.

Either it is hearing commands and not acting on them but reseting the 
command assist timer or its tried to reset the command assist timer and 
nothing has happened or the command assist timer is a casualty of whatever 
took the vehicle down in the first place.

That really strikes me (based on what I know and thats nothing so this data 
could be really wrong) as the only logical problem solving paths here and 
they all end with a hard reset.

If they send the hard reset and nothing happens then at the very least they 
can nail down the problem(s) to something that would kill the hard reset.  
My guess (and its only that) is that we should know something before New 
Years...
