nope, it's not too late. Ideally we should finish everything during this 
week. So if you have any problems please let us know.

Yup, we are aware of this problem. What you see is just a try.

We tried the submit button, but on certain platforms/browsers that was 

We tried to use submit image (to keep the button small and nice),

without clicking
on the button.
I guess we will go back to the submit HTML button in the end.
