Pre-ordered the second day it was announced, I think it was
August 27th.

Not yet. From personal experience, either my luck is bad, or CDs
coming to New York area are slow to arrive.

Chances are very small, but I might have a recent snapshot, from
september, at home somewhere. Can't check from here, but I can check
tonight and if you're interested I can burn it on a CD and give it to
you tomorrow in Manhattan. With snapshot you can cvs sync to -stable
pretty fast. I don't guarantee that the CD will be bootable. :)

Probably not.
